Niseko is easier than ever to access & Kizuna’s central Hirafu location is the best way to enjoy it.
Kizuna is located on Sasayaki-zaka, one street back from the famous Hirafu-zaka main street of the Niseko resort area.
The ski area is accessible in just 5 minutes by foot, or you can take advantage of the complimentary shuttle service to the lifts in the morning (8am – 11am). A popular Japanese-style izakaya restaurant and bar is available right across the street, as well as a ski equipment rental shop (Niseko Sports), onsen, mini market and more restaurants just 2 minutes away by foot.
