This summer, the Sky Bus Niseko returns

The Sky Bus will operate from July 20th to August 18th, 2024, for a short time only.

This summer in Niseko, the big, red open-top Sky Bus returns. While touring various spots in Niseko, you can enjoy panoramic views and sunsets right in front of you. Its biggest feature is the ability to view the iconic peak of Mount Yotei, a symbol of Niseko, from anywhere on the route. Many of Niseko's landmarks serve as bus stops, allowing passengers to hop on and off at most locations.

The bus is accompanied by attendants and equipped with an audio guide system available in both Japanese and English. This represents a new form of tourism in Niseko this summer. Why not explore the Kutchan-Niseko area while experiencing the great outdoors?

During the day, the Sky Bus operates as Niseko Panorama

Under the endless summer sky, the Sky Bus offers magnificent views of the majestic Mount Yotei. You can enjoy these breathtaking sights while feeling the refreshing breeze all around you. This is the true essence of an open-roof adventure.

At night, the Sky Bus operates as the Niseko Night-Go

Illuminated by the setting sun, Mount Yotei is coloured red, and the town is enveloped in the serene evening air. It's a different experience from daytime, where you can find solace in the natural scenery. Enjoy the cool breeze that spreads over Niseko at dusk, a new way to spend the summer in Niseko.
