This stunning house is built out of massive local Karamatsu logs and is located in a secluded lane between Annupuri and Niseko Village ski slopes (3 min drive to each). It is also 5 min to Moiwa, 15 min to Hirafu (Ace/Gondola/The Vale) and 25 min to Hanazono, all this while being immersed in the natural beauty of Hokkaido. The house has appeared in several specialized magazines and a video is available on YouTube (search for “Okiny model house”).
The house boasts the following amenities laid out on three levels:
Ground (entrance) floor:
a) one Japanese-style tatami room with two semi-double size futons. Sleeps 2 adults plus one child. (Futon size: 120x215cm, 47x85")

The massive logs and fireplace make the house warm and cozy and it's great to hang out and watch the snow fall through the huge south-facing windows after a hard day on the slopes. In summer the deck is a great place to sit out or enjoy a barbeque.
The location is secluded and exclusive, yet only a 3 minute drive to both Annupuri and Niseko Village Ski Resorts (a car or the use of a taxi is recommended in winter as walking along the roads at night can be dangerous).
It is possible to walk to Annupuri or Niseko Village Ski resorts in winter and then ski back to the house from Annupuri. The walk takes about 12-15 minutes, but we do not recommend you ski back unless you are an accomplished boarder/skier and are well familiar with the (off-piste) route.
