Arrival Guide

It is imperative you let us know how (bus, train or car) and what time you are arriving to Niseko. This is so we can schedule a pickup from the Welcome Centre (bus), Kutchan Station (train) or arrange a car park.

On your arrival to the Welcome Centre or Kutchan Station please call Snowgum Lodge (+0136 212 555) or Ramat Lodge (+0136 215 088). No one will be waiting on your arrival so please call to arrange a pickup.

Catching The Bus To Niseko

Catching The Train To Niseko

Bus – We recommend catching the bus as it leaves directly from the airport and drops you in the middle of Niseko Grand Hirafu village (Welcome Centre). Please note this must be pre-booked to ensure a spot on the bus.

Train – Train is the second-best method of getting to Niseko (Kutchan is actually the closest station to the lodge). The downsides are that you usually have to change trains in Otaru which can have a waiting time anywhere from 10 to 60 minutes and storing ski gear on the train can be difficult.
