Grand Hirafu is Niseko's busiest area, with NISADE having several high-end properties under its management. The area comes alive during the winter season, with visitors from all over the globe coming to experience the winter wonderland.

In Green Season Niseko turns into peaceful oasis with comfortable, mountain temperatures and beautiful scenery, especially with the glorious backdrop of Mt. Yotei. There is plenty of great hiking trails, international golf courses, cycling routes and more activities to enjoy outside of the winter season.
