Sometimes, a soft purr is enough to pull the strings of our hearts. A struggle for many is the guilt of leaving behind pets at home when travelling for extended periods of time. Especially coming to Niseko, it is not hard to imagine how your dog would love this place. Here are the top four reasons why Niseko is the perfect pet paradise during the summer.

Endless Green Fields

Arishima Nature in Niseko

With warmer weather and spring fast approaching, the scenery in Niseko is slowly turning from white to green. Dogs will love to run around the endless open fields and in the Japanese forest to chase wild snow rabbits or red squirrels. 

Mountain Trails

Mt Shirakaba Hike Trail.

With many mountains shaping the geography of Niseko, there are many hikes and trails at different levels which a few moments away from the centre of town. Some of these trails are shorter and easier while others can be more challenging. A good opportunity for your pet to stretch their legs and get away from their normal morning walk.  

Crystal Clear Rivers

The Shiribetsu River flows through Niseko with a fantastic view of the forestry and Mt Yotei. Not to mention it is perfect for a few splashes and dogs will love (and be confused) watching the rainbow trout or red spotted masu salmon swim freely in the river.  

Pet Friendly Accomodation

Mori K is an idyllic pet-friendly pad.

At Niseko Central our guests don't have to choose between their pets or a holiday. We have more than 25 condominiums that are pet friendly at varied locations with full amenities and close to many attractions. 

Nozomi Views is just steps away from the centre of Hirafu village and local restaurants. Making it easy to grab a bowl of ramen or gourmet sushi in the evening to refuel. 

Hangetsu is located close to Yukoro Onsen. The outdoor hot spring is a local favourite and a good way to rejuvenate after a tiring day of hiking. 

Hirafu House and Mori are situated in a quieter area of Hirafu and have amazing views of Mt Yotei.
