Art plays a significant role in setting the mood at this chic ski retreat.
Graphic installations by local artists, Eames-designed furniture and traditional spring-fed onsen: Welcome to the very cool Green Leaf. Located in Niseko Village at the base of Mount An'nupuri, this ski-in/ski-out hotel boasts guest rooms designed to complement the serene views. Tomioka White lounge has a fireplace for cozy breaks between runs, and Goshiki restaurant presents a buffet that incorporates local seafood and seasonal Hokkaido produce. Niseko Village is just one of four area resorts, featuring on- and off-piste skiing, snowmobiling, snow rafting and reindeer sledding. Depending on how high up the mountain you venture, you might even see the Pacific on a clear day.
