An incredibly beautiful, uncrowded, and peaceful spot, away from the Hirafu hysteria. It's a 3 minute drive to Annupuri and a 5 minute drive to the Hilton Niseko. Hirafu is 10 - 15 minutes depending on the weather.

What makes it special
It's close to everything, but separate. So you get beautiful, still peace. The panoramic view is sublime. The light is gorgeous. The finish is good quality. Furnishings are functional and good looking. And it's always warm when it needs to be. All these things combine to make Forest Hideaway unique.

Accommodation and amenities
Forest Hideaway sleeps 4 adults or a family of 2 adults and 3 kids in stylish, fully-equipped comfort. There are two bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom (shower, toilet, washbasin). Bedroom 1 has a double bed. Bedroom 2 has two singles. These beds have traditional Japanese futon mattresses. And there are 2 futon mattresses that can be set up in the upstairs living area. Simply unroll them at night and roll up in the morning. It has a kitchen, lounge, and dining area upstairs looking out over the birch forest through wide panoramic windows.

About the area
Soga is an off-the-main-drag birch forest between Annupuri and Niseko Village. There are other houses around, but crowding is not an issue like it is in Hirafu. Yet it's close enough not to matter.

Getting around
The Niseko area has some public transport, but it is not frequent and does not stop everywhere you might wish to travel. We can supply you with the details. For a much more convenient and practical experience we advise that you rent a car. There is so much more that you can do. There is parking in the driveway of Forest Hideaway and all the ski resorts have parking.

Refundable Recycling Fee
Niseko struggles with the huge amount of refuse its visitors create during the peak winter season. So it has a very strict recycling rules. All households must sort refuse before disposal. We ask our guests to help. When you check-in, we take refundable recycling fee of ¥10,000. If you help to recycle as required, we refund the fee when you check-out. If you'd prefer not to sort yourself then we use the fee to pay for the time it takes to sort it ourselves.

We had an amazing trip. Before we arrived we were a bit unsure of the location, thinking that it might be a bit isolated. But Forest Hideaway is literally minutes from everything. Ski slopes, restaurants, groceries. Most importantly for us, our kids had the space to play freely i…

Forest Hideaway was an absolute gem. The pictures don't do it justice! The house is meticulously decorated, and extremely inviting. From the large windows that overlook the birch trees, and beautiful snowfall to the heated floors, and generously stocked kitchen, you will find you…

Forest Hideaway is a little gem in Soga, hidden between Niseko Village and Annupuri. We loved the winter views from the large windows at Forest Hideaway and lounging upstairs in the cosy living and dining area. The living area was very comfortable with nice throws, great cushions…
