About The Chalet

Whether you spent the day hiking up Mount Annupuri’s endless trails, sliding down Niseko’s powder-covered slopes, or sauntering along Hirafu village’s quiet roads, we can’t think of a better home to return to than the luxurious four-bedroom Chalet Gouka.

‘Gouka’ means gorgeous in Japanese which – considering the awesome vistas from anywhere in this spacious chalet – somehow sounds like an understatement. Combining a typically Japanese taste for modern simplicity with elegant design, Chalet Gouka is a remarkable choice for a family or a group of friends looking for a stylish rental home, centrally located in Hirafu’s middle village.

Comfortably sleeping eight people, the chalet comprises of two generous ensuite master bedrooms and two guest bedrooms that share a separate bathroom with a bathtub. Each room can be set up for singles or for couples.

Chalet Gouka’s charming lounge area with relaxing leather sofas and nostalgic fireplace, along with its open-plan kitchen and large dining table, provide a great meeting space for catching up with loved ones on the day’s earlier outside adventures.

Fitted with a high-quality Bose sound system, flat-screen TV, DVD player and a variety of board games, there’s enough entertainment to please everyone during a cosy night-in.

For less homely après-ski options, simply head to one of Hirafu’s many bars or restaurants, most of which are only minutes away from the chalet.

Chalet Gouka’s excellent amenities, central location, and warm interior provide a lovely home for outdoor enthusiasts, both in winter and in summer.

Guest Experience

  • All services are awesome, the staff here are really nice. This is the first time I stayed in vacation rental but found this is a great option for people who have a lot of kids like us. I am sure there are a lot opportunities to have more customers especially from North Asia such as China, Korea and Japan. Overall it was a great experience, I want to recommend to my friends and stay here.
