    Shuttle Schedule is Tentative. The schedule will be confirmed on September 9th.

    Car Parking spaces are available at Niseko Village opposite the Hinode Hills Hotel. Guests are asked to park here and then walk or take a free resort shuttle a few minutes to the event.

    There are two main routes when driving from Sapporo. The first uses the Sasson Expressway towards Otaru. When approaching Otaru on the highway, follow the signs to Kutchan via the Shiribeshi Expressway.
