Lovely Apartment Degane in Hokkaido-Japan
Degane was one of the first ski-in/ski-out condos built in Hirafu in the modern development era, which began in the mid-2000s.
Along with The Vale Niseko next door, its developers jostled for prime position alongside the family ski run, perfect for beginners but also good for others who can access higher parts of the mountain from the family lift here.
Just a few steps away, the Vale’s Vale Bar & Grill restaurant offers an excellent range of meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner. AYA Niseko also has a restaurant on premises, or a short walk from your front door is the main street of Hirafu – groceries, bars, everything is close by.
Walk out onto the family run from the front door, and access the upper mountain via the family lift. Or jump on the free shuttle bus which stops right outside and can whisk you up to any of the lifts on the mountain.
