  • Description


    Hi all,

    I'm masa! I'm 31 years old from Niseko, Hokkaido and running my family's pension. Our pension is located 200m from the ski gondola in Annupuri. If you like snow, beautiful nature, clean air, fabulouse mountains and delicious foods, this is definitely your place!

    I used to work in a bank for 5 years and then decided corporate life isn't for me, I took a break for a year and visited 15 countries in Europe through Workaway. I found the idea of working in different places around the world and being able to experience them super cool and now want to host people so you can experience lovely Niseko and Japanese culture.

    I am working on my dream which is to make Unusual Accomodation in my home town Niseko and looking for great people to help!

    We are working on new projects such as starting a café, chillout terrace, roof top bar, ice bar, bouldering wall, tree house, organic garden and more.

    Lets enjoy our life in the Beautiful four season's resort region, Niseko!!!

    Now we are acepting people who can stay here at least 3 weeks.
