Hirafu village is the main hub for the Niseko United resort area. Apart from snowsports businesses, it hosts a range accommodation from hostels to deluxe penthouses and food outlets with restaurants, cafes and bars offering eastern and western food and beverage menus. Then there are the food vans!
Nothing is a waste of time if you use the experience wisely.
Christmas in a ski resort. First thoughts – expensive food and drink menus? Yes, probably. Every restaurant was booked out – since August! Behind the scenes though, there were other things afoot proving the Christmas spirit was alive and well in the Niseko region.
Holidays are about experiences and people, and tuning into what you feel like doing at that moment. Enjoy not having to look at a watch.

Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Change is the end result of all true learning.
I was at the gym recently, just doing my thing, and listening to the conversation between some young people around me. What I heard was that someone had finished a degree but had no job in the area. (My guess – taking a gap year in Niseko!) There were exchanges about degrees and their value. I suggested that it was something no one could take away from them. And further, that it was evidence that they knew how to learn. It made me think though – what is the real value of education?
