What A Great Trip
Written by Stephen a Snowboarder from Sydney, Australia
I took my son to Niseko for his 21st and we had a fabulous time.
Although we went a little late in the season (1st week of March) there was still sufficient snowfall to call the conditions "Good". If there was anything negative about the trip, I would say that there were a few too many young crass Aussies in Niseko that spoiled the beautiful Japanese atmosphere that I have experienced in the past, in places like Hakuba and Shiga Kogen.
Our accommodation at Kira Kira (room 601) was awesome. I thoroughly “web shopped” in Niseko, and here in AUS for the best accommodation deals, and Travelplan was the cheapest by nearly 30%, when compared to one of the major Niseko based competitors. Travelplan's service was excellent. We were greeted on arrival by a Travelplan staff member who took the time to explain how everything worked in our apartment and ran us through the layout of Niseko, Hirafu and the surrounding areas. Travelplan made everything else run smoothly – from our airport transfers to our lift passes which were sitting on our kitchen table on arrival. I could not recommend Travelplan’s services more highly and I would certainly use them again. Ask for Scott B. He was most helpful. Steve B - Sydney
