With classic alpine lines juxtaposed into a bold cantilevered structure, the twin Shakuzen chalets Mori and Kawa are mirror images of each other.  Combining contemporary Japanese design with the Northern European influences, the lines are clean and the color palette is quiet. Bordering an idyllic mountain stream, Shakuzen is nestled within Hokkaido's birch and oak forest, and the surrounding Hokkaido forest is captured through window "snapshots", which will become the ever changing wall art.  

Each of the 3 bedroom/2 bathroom chalets can comfortably sleep 9 guests.  The large living room on the second floor is spacious under vaulted ceilings, with multiple areas to sit and chat, including an oversized bay window to curl up and read a book. For the kid's enjoyment, the large bunk room has its own media area, and a pull out bed under the bottom bunk, so the room can sleep 5 people.  For larger groups and multiple families, we suggest to book both Shakuzen chalets, capable of sleeping 18 people in total.

Located just a few minutes drive from the bases of both Niseko Village Resort and Annupuri Resort, winter guests can make their pick based on the current snowfall and wind conditions.  Numerous onsen hot springs, restaurants, and shops are all within quick driving distance.  Summer guests will enjoy the quick proximity to the Niseko Village golf course, and hiking on Mt. Annupuri.
