With the arrival of Chinese new year here in Niseko today is a day of celebration. So after you have gorged yourself on fresh snow and need a break why not drop by one of the many events happening around Niseko to celebrate the year of the dog. Here are a couple options.


Over at Hanazono the fun starts at 11:30 with a Chinese Dragon dance in and around 308!

Ski or take the free shuttle over to Hanazono on February 16th, 2018 to celebrate Chinese New Year! There will be 2 performances of “Shishimai” or a Traditional Chinese Lion Dance. During this act the performers mimic a lion’s movements in a lion costume to bring good luck and fortune. Also, the very talented and high-energy group Yotei Diako will be thrilling the crowd with a traditional taiko performance.


The celebrations start from 13:00 at the The Vale Niseko. Nisade have produced a great post about Chinese new year with some excellent background information 😉
