It’s that time of year again. You’ve been a good boy all year, you’ve written your list with all the presents that you want and you’ve set up and decorated the Christmas tree. But, how many of you have had the opportunity to visit Santa?
Well, there is no need to worry that you won’t get to see him just because you’re on holiday in Niseko, as Santa is also here on vacation, though sadly for him, it’s more like a working holiday.
For the young (or the young at heart) Grand Hirafu, Annupuri and Niseko Village give you the opportunity of meeting the jolly big guy and having a photo taken with him.
Niseko Village – 24th of December:
Even though Santa is going to have a very busy evening giving gifts later in the evening, he’s taking time out to give gifts and to have photographs taken with the children. He’s starting the evening at 17:00 – 17:20 in the Flame Lounge in Hilton Niseko Village. From 17:30 – 17:45 Santa will be opposite the Hilton Niseko Village entrance with his reindeers, giving an amazing photo opportunity. And finally, from 18:30 – 19:00, Santa will be at the Tomioka White Lounge at The Green Leaf, bearing gifts for the little ones as well as a complimentary cup of Eggnog.
Grand Hirafu – 23rd to 25th of December:
Santa will be out on the slopes on his skis handing out sweets to the children. He will also be at the Alpen Ridge hotel, opposite the Family Chairlift between 12:30 – 13:30 on the 23rd and 24th of December, posing for photos and handing out cookies and sweets (for the first 100 guests).
Niseko Annupuri – 24th and 25th of December:
Santa Claus and Niseko Town’s mascot, Nicky, will be out on skis on slopes handing out treats to the children.
All events are free of charge, so make the most of this opportunity to give your little ones a holiday memory they are sure to cherish.
