Restaurant visit - great
Stumble across this restaurant while walking from gear hire back to hotel. Very happy to have found it. Came back for a second night. Was nice finding a 'traditional' meal with very reasonable prices. Great service and meals. Will consider also staying here if I decide to visit niseko in the future.
Don’t be deterred by lack of reviews! Great stay!
Couldn’t recommend this place highly enough. Coming from Australia, it was nice to see a traditional Japanese house rather than stay in a hotel which lacks any cultural reference to where you are staying. We were taken to hirafu base every day in the shuttle, and picked up at the end of the day (then taken back in and out for dinner). Room was cosy, probably a bit small but we got all our stuff in. You’re not there most of the time so it worked out fine. The owner was absolutely lovely, such pride in his hotel. The facilities are shared but very clean. Definitely recommend if you’re looking for something cheaper and more traditional. Thanks for having us! Lack of reviews may be due to more local Japanese staying there, and therefore less likely to review. So don’t take it as a sign of a bad place, just a hidden gem only minutes from hirafu centre!
Really nice stay at Alice Pension. Owners are really helpful and welcoming. No problem to come to pick up when you arrive at the ski resort. Shuttle bus everyday morning/evening to ski resort and city center. Nice breakfast for the price. Quiet and warm place to sleep.
