3 Things Everyone Forgets To Book Beforehand

Enjoy more of Niseko's winter wonderland by pre-booking a few things.

As one of the most popular winter destinations, booking ahead for some of Niseko's winter activities is a must. Make the most of your ski holiday in Niseko's snow paradise by booking the following essentials which many people forget to book after flights and hotels. 

#1 Transfers

Sky Express Blue Coaster Yotei Winter Low Res 11

Beat other travellers by booking your transfer to and from the airport. Arrive at New Chitose Airport stress-free without worrying about catching the right train or bus in a foreign country or carrying your luggage around. 

Start your trip without a hassle by booking your private transfer to Niseko.

Sit back, relax and enjoy Hokkaido's winter scenery on a private transfer. Many companies such as SkyExpress offer door-to-door service with pickup and drop off at your hotel or chalet. However, spaces on these services fill up quickly during peak periods. It is recommended to book before arriving in Japan.

#2 Ski Lessons

Go Snow Adult Group Lesson 7

Powder snow is one of the main reasons why many skiers and snowboarders come to Niseko. Not only will avid skiers want to hone their skills on the mountain, even novices will be tempted to try out skiing or snowboarding for the first time. 

Nothing really beats the feeling of riding on the slopes. With one on one attention to help you master those turns faster, private ski or snowboard lessons are immensely popular and availability for these lessons becomes limited.

Be sure you get your own private lessons by pre-booking them before you arrive in Niseko.

Check out GoSnow for their range of private lessons, kids lessons, tours and more.

#3 Restaurants

Don't miss out on the opportunity to taste some of the best seafood and produce in Japan. Surrounded by cold waters, Hokkaido is famous within Japan for having some of the freshest seafood.  Make sure to pre book your table before you arrive as tables fill up fast during the winter. 

Try out made to order soba at Rakuichi Soba, fine dining at An Dining or dine at new Hokkaido izakaya, Kumo Restaurant.
