Annupuri Village is one of the main villages at the base of the Niseko United Ski Resort. Niseko United consists of Niseko Annupuri, Niseko Village (formerly Niseko Higashiyama), and Niseko Grand Hirafu/Hanazono.

All these three villages and Kutchan town are connected via a free shuttle bus during the winter for all ski lift pass holders.


Geology, geography and the jet stream combine to create a monstrous snowfall that draws people from around the world every winter to Niseko. Its proximity to the ocean and exposure to Siberian winds leave nearly 15 meters of amazing powder snow on our doorsteps every winter.

The Niseko Annupuri Peak rises 1000 vertical meters from its base and consists of 4 resorts under the Niseko United Pass, which combined provide about 2800 skiable acres. The surrounding wilderness provides the setting for a plethora of backcountry activities available for all ages and abilities.

Of the three resort areas on the Niseko Annupuri Peak, Annupuri is located in a quasi-national park land and known as the most quiet and serene area. Annupuri allows easy access to the peak and some of the best deep powder runs Niseko has to offer via gondola and short lift rides.

As the nearest village to the Niseko Panorama Line, Annupuri also offers a convenient location for back country enthusiasts to access miles and miles of pristine terrain with the help of a local guide and a pair of snowshoes. For those looking for adventurous outdoor activities or just relaxing times in the mountains, rivers, seas and Japanese hot springs in the Niseko area, Annupuri Village is a prime location.

Summer in Niseko is absolutely beautiful. The warm and dry Hokkaido air accommodates a wide array of outdoor activities including white water rafting, sea kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, parasailing, tennis and golf, just to name a few. The landscape provides an unforgettable outdoor experience for just about everyone.


Hokkaido’s major airport, New Chitose International Airport, is easily accessed from most major cities in Asia. For those flying within Japan, flights are frequent from major Japanese hubs. Tokyo to Sapporo is one of the busiest air routes in the world. From the New Chitose International Airport, it takes a two-hour car/bus/limousine ride to Annupuri Village.


With beautiful and unique seasons, Hokkaido continually displays a shifting panorama offering expanses of untouched blossom in the spring; lush green scenery on warm, dry summer days; autumnal forests of red and auburn hues; to snowcapped peaks and sugar-frosted fields, with one of the heavy powder snows in the world
