Niseko is a rare area in Japan where you can enjoy side country efficiently using a lift. The area where you slide on this tour is a series of excitement and experiences that you can not get on the slopes. This is a tour where you can feel "Is this Niseko ?!" You can understand why skiers are rushing from all over the world in one shot. Niseko is fun enough on the slopes, but skiing

it's recommended!
