Escape to Niseko for the Coolest Summer Holiday! 

Niseko Tourism says this summer offers a unique opportunity for Japan-based travellers to experience its “green-season”.

Niseko’s summer is ripe for all sorts of fresh gourmet food experiences and outdoor activities.

Without international visitors this summer, there are great deals on accommodations, activities and restaurants/bars.

Visitors this summer can also be among the first to try Hokkaido’s biggest tree-trekking course which has just opened at Niseko’s Hanazono Resort.

Niseko Tourism Marketing Director Acme Wu says Niseko makes the perfect base to stay and explore Southwest Hokkaido.

“Within 60 minutes drive there are dozens of Hokkaido’s most famous scenic spots,” Acme says.

“For example, visitors staying in Niseko can easily visit Shakotan for the freshest sea urchin (uni).

“Lake Toya offers a range of dining and activity options on and around the lake, which is one of the most picturesque spots in Japan.

“Another coastal town Yoichi is famous for its spectacular wineries and whisky distiller, and it’s also one of the best places to try fruit picking while overlooking the Sea of Japan coastline.”

There are dozens of activities in and around Niseko to suit all ages including: rafting, SUP boarding, kayaking , canyoning, tree trekking (three parks to choose from), mountain biking and electric biking (hire available), hiking, and more! Not to mention more than 20 different onsens for guests to relax and rejuvenate after all the fun during the day.

Niseko is becoming a famous international dining destination, so there is no better time for domestic travellers to come and see what the world is talking about – from Michelin-star restaurants to various local favourites, visitors can enjoy Japanese and international cuisine.

Niseko also has the best resort accommodation in Japan, with the best ever prices available now.

Choose from five-star hotels, self-contained apartments, or stand alone houses or cottages.

2021 Jolly Fox Invitational Niseko Golf Competition

The 2nd Jolly Fox Invitational Wrapped with Four Days of Fun in Niseko!

And it is a wrap! The 2nd Annual Jolly Fox Invitational, which took place at Hanazono Golf from June 16-19, has now come to a close and what an amazing event it was. The Jolly Fox Invitational is 4 sensational days of fun starting with the entertaining team draw, followed by 3 rounds of awesome golf competition. The event culminates with the crowing of the Champion at the Gala Awards Dinner held at the Park Hyatt Hanazono Niseko. This year’s competition was won in dominating fashion by the team of Ohtani & Colless who scored a tournament record low score of 22 under par. The pair held their lead through all three rounds of the competition and sealed the victory on Saturday afternoon in front of a big crowd on the 18th green.

The pulse-ending finish of last year’s Jolly was replaced with a tense battle for the coveted 3rd and 4th places (top 4 places won cash prizes). Going into the 18th hole, 3 teams were tied and competing for 2 in-the-money prizes. Ed Downer hit an amazing 30 yard chip shot over the greenside bunker landing it softly on the green within 10 feet of the hole. The Greenwood/Downer team 2-putted to secure sole possession of 3rd place. Coming in 2nd place was the team of Greg Hough and Ruri Meikle with of a score of 16 under par. In any other year, this would likely have been a winning score. Ruri became the first woman to compete in the Jolly and she even won the Longest Drive competition over 31 men on Day 1. This year also saw the introduction of a ¥5M Hole-In-One Competition as well as an exciting ¥1m Putting Competition.

The event continues to raise money for Niseko Tourism to support the essential promotional efforts of ensuring Niseko’s rapid return to one of Asia’s first choice travel destinations.

This competition wouldn’t have been possible without the incredible support of key sponsors:Callaway, H2 Group, Park Hyatt Hanazono Niseko, Powderlife, Hanazono Golf, Black Wood Grill, MnK, Niseko Black, Glen Claydon Photography, Uchi and Niseko Realty.
