HakuVillas Wraps Come Off!

Watch as the one of a kind HakuVillas springs from the ground in Hirafu-Niseko!

Opening in 2019, HakuVillas will set a new standard of luxury in Niseko. Located just steps away from the Grand Hirafu Gondola in Upper Hirafu, HakuVillas was conceived with the guest experience as the central guiding influence over every design decision. Consisting of only 4 luxury villas,this 7-story masterpiece fully integrates Mt. Yōtei into its design from volcanic stone and rich natural woods to the breathtaking vistas, and has been conceived of from ground up to be fully compatible with HakuLife service. The Taiga collaboration combines distinctive Japanese alpine design with unprecedented spaciousness and lavish comforts.

Taiga - The Movie

Explore the stunning 4 seasons of Niseko, Japan, and how nature in all her glory has woven itself into the fundamental fabric of our DNA here at Taiga. As year round residents, we are passionate about the Niseko - Kutchan area, and take every opportunity to celebrate the talented locals and beautiful scenery. 

We are long time locals, and our Niseko surroundings influences our approach to every aspect of our work, from guiding a first time visitor to the best Niseko holiday accommodation, looking at a real estate investment, or embarking on the very deep and personal journey of designing and building a holiday home.

With over a year of collecting footage and in production, we would like to thank long time contributor Glen Claydon Photography for producing, as well as providing the stunning aerial footage that really shows Niseko, video footage of our projects, time-lapse footage and assistant editing, Shane Peel from My House Pictures for video footage and collaborating on the script, video editing and additional footage by Neil Hartmann, and additional footage by Satoru Chiba.

Thank you to everyone for your support, and enjoy!
