The design concept at the “Shopping and Dining Area” of Niseko Village is that of Japan’s traditional wooden townhouses. With a modern atmosphere blended with the traditional beauty of Japanese culture, you’ll get the impression of buildings with a relaxed appearance. It’s not just the dining out and shopping, but even taking a walk around the area colored in pure white snow sounds quite enjoyable. Starting with restaurants where you can taste the fortunes of Hokkaido’s oceans and the fresh vegetables grown by local farmers, you’ll also find a lineup of stores, such as shops carrying famous products of Hokkaido and shops selling works by Otaru-based glass artists. Whether you’re taking a breather at a cafe or restaurant on break from skiing or taking a stroll while you look for souvenirs, this is a space that you can enjoy in so many different styles.
