New Mega Zipline & World-Class Light Show Wowing Niseko Summer Visitors

New Summer Activities Leading Strong Return To Tourism

Continued investment in new developments and facilities are a sign of confidence of a strong return to tourism in Niseko. 

A number of new activities are leading the charge, with two new highlights at Hanazono, the most spectacular being Mountain Lights – an evening light art installation by world-renowned artist Bruce Munro.

During the day, visitors can fly over the ski runs at Hanazono Zip World – Asia’s longest new zip line course stretching more than 2.6 adrenaline-charged kilometres. 

Several new condo hotels are also opening this summer adding more luxury and excitement to the resort.

Events which have been canceled in recent years will also be returning this summer, including the popular Niseko Autumn Food Festival as well as Hirafu Matsuri and Kutchan Potato Matsuri.

Niseko Tourism Marketing Director Acme Wu says Niseko is geared up to provide exciting new experiences to travelers. 

“With the launch of Mountain Lights and Zipline by Hanazono Resort, Niseko certainly boosts an exciting atmosphere and is ready to welcome guests to enjoy the beautiful Hokakido summer season,” Acme says.

“There are many new accommodations or activities, which were put on hold during Covid, are now open again. We are happy to see guests coming to explore the Niseko area with all these facilities”.

Condominium style accommodation “Setsu Niseko”, has also opened for the first time this summer, after a number of years of construction. 

Setsu Niseko is located in Hirafu Village, and joins a number of other condominium accommodations in the area.

The resort is also seeing further improvements to mountain bike facilities, with new mountain bike trails being built in the area. Construction has already begun on the three trails which combined will run for nine kilometres. These trails are expected to be completed by Autumn of this year, with an additional ten kilometres of trails to be completed next year.
