We loved the location and abundance of natural light at Hachiko. The common areas situated on a single floor are ideal for gathering and unwinding, whether for breakfast or at the end of a day spent exploring the breathtaking Hokkaido outdoors.

The muted earth tones throughout the chalet have a lovely grounding effect, and the decor and design is sleek Scandinavian chic, a real joy to step into and wake up to.

The bedrooms being spread out over two levels meant that each member of our group had a comfortable ‘nest’ to retreat to whether to catch up on some sleep, read a book or get a massage in peace. The addition of a drying room for skis and boots, plus the laundry facilities, dishwasher, and car parking space are also great facilities.

Then, there’s the complimentary housekeeping and the driver-on call service which was great! We used this to go to the supermarket and for daily trips to and from the gondola with all our gear.

We loved wandering out into the charming streets of Hirafu village; there are bars, restaurants, boutiques and cafes to be discovered, though be careful in winter time - the roads can get slippery.

One evening, we indulged in a celebratory meal at home cooked by Niseko Gourmet, and it was superb. The chef prepared an omakase (degustation) meal featuring seasonal Hokkaido ingredients especially for us.

Highlights

Location, design and natural light! Being located in Hirafu village is convenient and interesting. Hachiko is beautifully appointed, with floor-to-ceiling windows which frame the majestic views perfectly.

Surprises

The house is located on a quiet street in the lower part of Hirafu Village, but those who are keen to get to the ski lifts or to shop on the main street can take advantage of the complimentary driver on call service. Be careful when walking out to restaurants and bars in winter, the roads can get slippery.

The place was exactly as advertised - stylish, convenient, well equipped and no faults. Everything was in working order. The Elite Havens staff were excellent - communication was swift and accurate, transport shuttle service was quick and convenient, and everyone we engaged with were very courteous and helpful. Thanks very much Andrew and the Elite Havens team!
