The festival is located on the corner of Hirafu’s main intersection - opposite Rhythm Japan, view location on Google Map HERE. Car parking is available at Hirafu #1 Parking lot near the Hirafu Welcome Center. Guests are asked to park there and then walk down the main street to the event.
There are two main routes when driving from Sapporo. The first uses the Sasson Expressway towards Otaru. When approaching Otaru on the highway, follow the signs to Kutchan via the Shiribeshi Expressway. The second route takes drivers via route 230 through Nakayama Toge. This is a slightly longer route but is toll-free.
There will also be a free shuttle in the evenings to and from Kutchan Train Station.
This year NAFF has also partnered up with a variety of other operators in the Niseko region to offer an array of other activities and workshops in conjunction with the festival including Tree Trekking, Ice- cream making, Hot air Ballooning, Rafting Rock Climbing, Skateboarding and more.
