We’re used to sunshine and sandy shores, but once a year we’re brimming with anticipation for a week of skiing in Niseko, Japan. Known as the alps of Asia, a winter here mixes Japanese culture with some of the finest powder snow you’ll ever see. Think minimalist chalets, tiny izakaya bars and fresh Hokkaido seafood.
Now imagine an elegant, tastefully designed modern Japanese studio, and there you have Muse Niseko.
Muse Niseko sits on the edge of the Upper Village, facing the famous Mt. Yotei. The apartment building focuses strongly on luxury amenities and aesthetic, keeping things simple with units up to 5-bedrooms, studios, and penthouses. Along with gorgeous, clear views of the volcano. (imagine waking up to that!), Muse Niseko has a gallery of art pieces selected by Interior Architect Atsuko Itoda. There’s also a fully-equipped ski and boot room with lockers, bike storage and a large powder room. On the 7th floor, you’ll find a roof terrace and garden for outdoor entertainment.
All units feature an abundance of natural materials like timber and stone, complementing a theme of soft earth tones and rich character. Rooms and all its furniture are designed and curated according to the highest standards of European and Japanese quality. Setting the mood for cosy nights are a fireplace in all apartments except for the studio.
Good to know — apartments also have a washer and dryer, with big closets to keep everything neat.
You won’t even find a restaurant here, only comfy vacation homes. But don’t worry, because the bucket-list Michelin-starred Kamimura is just across the street, as is Gorilla Supermarket and Deli, and Crab Dining Kanon right outside the entrance.
And now the best part of all: skiing! Muse Niseko is only a 5-minute walk to ski lifts and dot base, and arrangements for ski lessons are easily made with the Niseko International Sports School (NISS) and Niseko Sports for equipment rentals, all through The Luxe Nomad’s complimentary concierge services.
