Niseko's uniquely open guide is the area's premier information and networking website. Ask us anything. Welcome to The Kutchannel.

Niseko, Hirafu, Kutchan

The open guide to Japan's premier alpine resort.


Welcome to Niseko! Located on Hokkaido, Japan's expansive and scenic northernmost island, Niseko is Asia's premier four-season alpine resort area. While best known for dumping dependably copious amounts of dry champagne powder snow each winter, the spring, summer, and autumn seasons each also have their own charm. If you're visiting here, working here, investing here, or living here, then hopefully The Kutchannel is for you. We are funded by our sponsors (thanks!) and aspire to be a uniquely open user-powered guide to the Niseko area while providing free online services to the people, businesses, and organisations that help make the resort so amazing.
