Niseko's dry powdery snow is incredibly popular with international skiers. One of four ski resorts in the area, Niseko Hanazono is located on the southwest corner of Japan's north island, Hokkaido. Niseko HANAZONO is surrounded by the majestic Niseko Mountain and is renowned for its range of free ride ski and terrain parks. Holiday makers seeking adventure will love the resorts' activities on offer including winter rafting, sledding, zip lining and bag jumping, which allows skiers to practice their jumps safely by landing on a giant air bag.
