Comments from accommodation

YHA Niseko Fujiyama Karimpani is a skiers/snowboaders lodge in a renovated old schoolhouse. It has been operating as a budget accommodation for 20 years.

We are located in between Niseko train station and Niseko Annupuri Kokusai ski resort.

We offer a complimentary pick up and drop off service from Niseko train station or major bus stop from the airport or Sapporo (conditions apply / booking is essential).

Surrounded by farmlands and forests, it is a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere with views of the Niseko Annupuri mountain range, Mt Yotei and Mt Konbu.

It takes only 5 minutes by car to Niseko Annupuri Kokusai ski resort, and we offer transfers every morning and afternoon. We also do transfers to Niseko Village and Niseko Moiwa ski resort. Grand Hirafu can be ski-in direct from top lift of Annupuri or Niseko Village's gondola otherwise by Niseko United Shuttlebus.

Our hostel is about 15 minutes drive from the Hirafu pubs/restaurants village. This means the YHA is quiet and peaceful which ensures a good nights sleep.

Onsen (Hot spring): Another excellent aspect of our location is the accessibility to onsen hot springs. We are located in the center area of 10 different onsens within 10 minutes drive. We offer onsen tour after dinner and enjoying a different onsen every time!

Rental: Ski and snowboard rental can be delivered to the YHA. It is cheap, easy and very quick.

Rusutsu: There are bus services from Niseko town centre every day. A day trip to Rusutsu is a great way to find something different!

Upon your enquiry/booking, please tell us how many male and female members there are for us to work out room/bed allocation.

The YHA host family Max, Yuko and kids used to live in the southmost town of New Zealand for five years and really enjoyed the NZ Club-skifield community.
