Bus - How To Book

This is the recommended method of getting to Niseko from the airport. The bus leaves directly from the airport and drops you in the middle of Niseko Grand Hirafu village (Hirafu Welcome Centre) where you can call us to come and pick you up. 

Buses must be pre-booked more than 9 days before your stay to ensure a spot on the bus and a lodge transfer on arrival. Please see below for instructions on how to book.

There are two options to book Bus & Lodge Transfers between New Chitose Airport and Ramat Niseko.
 

Option 1 – Book Your Chitose to Niseko Bus Directly With Us

With this option you do not need to book Lodge Transfers. We will have your bus details via your bus booking and will schedule your Hirafu Welcome Centre pick-up or drop-off.
