YTL Hotels is delighted to announce the opening of Higashiyama Niseko Village, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve on December 15, 2020. The property will make its highly anticipated debut in Niseko, Hokkaido, the powder mecca of Japan, as the winter season unfolds.

The first Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Japan, the resort lies at the base of Mount Niseko Annupuri and offers majestic, panoramic views of Mount Yotei. The property boasts 43 rooms and seven suites, two distinctive restaurants – Yukibana and Sushi Nagi – for all-day dining and Omakase-style sushi, the Ume Lounge, a fitness center, an exclusive team of Higashiyama Reservists, and a world-class spa and onsen.

Kachou Fuugetsu, the philosophy of discovering oneself through nature, lies at the core of the resort as Niseko doesn’t just offer natural beauty, it inspires self-revelations and change within. During their stay, travelers are encouraged to explore the local origins of the food on their plates, appreciate the power of solitude while on a mountain walk or ski run and enjoy the healing elements of Japan’s hot springs for an experience rooted in discovery and harmony. 

Higashiyama Niseko Village, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve also acts as a world-class gateway to Niseko’s mountains, offering access to 2,191 acres of skiable terrain, 70 runs, 29 lifts and gondolas, and extensive backcountry skiing. Niseko Village offers exceptional off-piste terrain and a wide range of well-groomed runs suited to all levels of riders, including extreme skiers. The area’s combination of endless powder, unique riding opportunities and stunning scenery sets Niseko Village apart from the other ski resorts in Japan, making it the perfect choice for a luxurious getaway.
