For super- fun winter activities, guests and visitors can take a spin on some of the best ski slopes in the world, renowned for its dry champagne powder snow that the locals call Japow. And in summer, the best of both fresh harvest and wildlife awaits with the promise of enjoying a diverse range of outdoor recreational activities including golf, trekking and horse riding.

  • Niseko was Agoda’sfastest growing destination for bookings in 2016.

  • Hokkaido Ranked #1 in Lonely Planet’s “Best in Asia for 2016.

For visitors’ utmost convenience, Snow Dog Village is strategically connected to the New Chitose Airport, and can be found right at the centre of Niseko Village, which the skiing world now celebrates as among the best ski resort towns and certainly in league with the famed St Moritz in Switzerland and Aspen in Colorado.

With the breath-taking Mount Yotei, the fabulous Niseko Village resort and the snow-covered surrounding forest as backdrops, Snow Dog Village proudly features 26 thoughtfully designed apartment units, amply complemented by daily shuttle trips to and from the chairlifts and Hirafu Village, on-site guest service team, ski storage and ski-in access during the white season. Guests will also find that the Banzai chairlift is but a four-minute walking through the adjacent forest.

Thanks to its strategic location, Snow Dog Village counts two highly-acclaimed golf courses as nearby neighbours. And as a prime real estate piece, the property serves as the gateway to Niseko’s famed après-ski experience, giving access to the near-perfect outdoor activity park and a combo of dining and retail within the village hub.

Why Choose Snow Dog Niseko

SDV aims to please both investors and guests alike with its finely honed

sense of place and purpose within the wider Niseko market. Having opened to the public in early 2017, phase 1of the project is split into two blocks, both designed with great care to maximise the efficiency of each apartment’s interior space and boasting great views towards the ski slopes or Mt. Yotei.


Orientated towards maximising occupancy and yield performance, SDV is positioned at a market-leading per sqm price-point and foregoes some impractical extravagances in place of function and efficiency.

Shrouded in a quiet, picturesque forest and situated mere steps from the Niseko Village resort base, Snow Dog Village affords investors rapid access to Niseko’s quietest ski slopes whilst remaining only a short 10-minute drive to the renowned restaurants and nightlife of Hirafu



Future Plans

Phase 2 of Snow Dog Village is due for completion in the 1st quarter of 2018. Once completed, key lifestyle services will be added to the project such as an on-site restaurant and dedicated concierge office.


Phase 2 completion will also coincide with a full review of pricing of any remaining phase 1 unit so be sure to reserve your unit soon.
