My boyfriend and I stayed here for 6 days and we absolutely loved it! Christian was the manager for this season & he's awesome. He made us feel at home from the beginning & cooked yummy breakfast every morning. The owners were there with us (Peter and family) & they were super friendly and accomodating. They have such a lovely lodge and I really recommend anyone to come and stay at North Point for a relaxing and cozy getaway from the busy Hirafu and after a day in the slopes. The lodge is just 10-15 minute walk away from Hirafu Welcome Center. The North point crew have shuttles in the morning to take anyone up to the slopes so not to worry! The room is so so so comfortable and cozy - we both had good sleeps during our stay. I would 100% come back here to stay especially cuz its such a GREAT price point and deal for Niseko and being in the heart of Hirafu!!! If the luxurious and fancy chalets and hotels are not in your price range, THIS is the one you should look at. You're taken care of from the beginning until the end of your trip. You'll have a wonderful time @ North Point!

A very well run lodge by Tony and Carmen. Perfectly set up for skiing with all facilities. Handy to town but book restaurants in advance. Great recommendations from Tony and Carmen. I note the high scoring in the ratings and this is well deserved.

I visited with a group. Carmen & Tony were great hosts, good company and run a good shop. Tony's eggs (& ski legs) are pretty good too. The lodge is well located in Lower Hirafu with good bars & restaurants close by. Recommended to anyone who wants a ski lodge experience.

We had a fantastic time at North Point. The lodge is in a great location and easily accessible to all facilities. It is warm and cozy and immaculately clean. The rooms are a decent size by Japanese standards and blissfully warmed by floor heating. But what really makes this such a great place to stay is the Managers! Carmen and Tony are truly amazing hosts. They are friendly, hospitable and wonderfully generous. They cannot do enough for you. They pick you up on arrival and ferry you around the town and most importantly to the lifts in the morning. They have a wealth of knowledge of the area and offer practical advice on all aspects of skiing/boarding in general. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Dont stay anywhere else!

We loved our stay at North Point! Carmen and Tony were the most amazing hosts. They were full of recommendations for restaurants and bars and were super helpful with gear hire and giving us lifts and lending us odd bits of gear. The accommodation was very clean, comfortable and spacious. The floors were heated and showers were piping hot - essential for a bunch of Perth people in the snow for the first time! There was enough room in the common areas to chill out and feel right at home. It was the perfect pad for our Niseko trip and we'll definitely be back!
