Luxury Onsen Estate Intuition Niseko Opens to Public

After a two year pause, exclusive onsen estate and hotel, Intuition Niseko, has opened its doors to welcome guests for a much anticipated snow season.

  • Intuition Niseko welcomes its first guests after a two year pause
  • Niseko Naniwatei opens with 60 years of experience in Sapporo
  • Strong early season demand expected to continue

Originally scheduled to open in December 2020,  the hotel’s launch was paused due to Japan’s pandemic border closures. That was left in the past as the Intuition Niseko team excitedly welcomed their first guests opening on the 9th December 2022.

Intuition joins Niseko as an “exclusive onsen hotel & estate” and is located near the Ace Family quad chairlift. The property was master-planned by renowned architect Kengo Kuma and developed by Zekkei in partnership with Niseko Alpine Developments (NISADE), who operate the property. “The estate’s forest location gives it an intimate, private feeling without sacrificing proximity to the slopes or village atmosphere,” said NISADE’s Hotel Operations Director Jayan Shrestha, “we haven’t sacrificed the Mt Yotei views either”.

The first arrivals herald what is shaping up like an exciting season for Niseko’s premier accommodation provider NISADE. “As soon as Japan’s border reopening was announced, we saw an unprecedented surge in bookings, enquiries and traffic through our booking website,” said NISADE Japan’s Marketing Manager, Amon Bradshaw, “with Intuition on sale until the end of the month we’re expecting bookings for the property to remain strong”.

The opening of Intuition Niseko also heralds the arrival of Niseko Naniwatei ニセコ浪花亭. The restaurant comes with over sixty years of experience in Sapporo and offers refined Japanese dining using local vegetables from the Niseko area and seafood sourced in Hokkaido. Naniwatei’s menu offers a range of options and courses including the 10 dish Hirafu selection starting at ¥15,000.
