THOUSAND CHERRY TREES
A thousand sakura trees were planted at Miyayama hill, close to the literary museum dedicated to Takeo Arishima, the famous writer so inseparably connected to Niseko.
TWIN CHERRY TREES
Niseko's most famous photographed spot of two old cherry trees and the majestic Mount Yotei as a backdrop. View these trees from the access road to avoid damaging crops as the trees are on private farmland.
The main street of Niseko town is designed with wide cobbled footpaths and colourful flowerbeds that change yearly to encourage strollers during summer. Tables and chairs line the footpaths for a place to take a breather or to enjoy a chat.
NISEKO OSTRICH FARM
Birds on this farm roam around a paddock with spectacular views towards Mount Yotei and Hilton Niseko Village. Stop by and feed them with packets of seed found in the giant letterbox on the farm by leaving a small donation. You might even see the farmer collecting a massive freshly laid egg with some weighing up to 1.5kg! The eggs are blown and painted to make for a great souvenir.
Architecturally reminiscent of a Tudor-style house, much of its charm lies in its seasonal decorations and Café Sabou Nupuri within. The Matsudas, proprietors of the homely café, led a local culinary revolution by founding a cooking group called Jugobaa (meaning 'fifteen old ladies') to study the traditional Japanese art of cooking using local produce without preservatives and has gained international recognition for their efforts.
Niseko's water is among the purest in Japan originating from Mount Yotei's base that acts like a giant water filter through its underground layers with an astonishing 530,000 tonnes gushing out of springs daily. A famous spot to collect your own fresh spring water is at Kanro Spring in Sakamoto Park, Niseko Town. Surrounded by woods, the spring water is prized by locals who use it for making beverages and cooking.
