Hello and good afternoon from Niseko.

It has been a while hasn't it. I hope that you and yours are keeping well.

It's November already and I am now in the process of coming out of my hibernation and starting to get excited about the upcoming winter season.

The summer has been hot, sometimes really hot even up here in Hokkaido. Japan hosted the Olympics - I'll refrain from commenting on that - and got itself quite alarmed at the biggest wave of COVID cases around the same time over summer, but happily things seem to have really calmed down now. The confirmed case numbers are way back down and everyone is hoping that they will stay that way. Fingers crossed we really are past the worst of it now. Japan seems to be gradually getting back to normal... just with masks.

The international borders remain closed to tourists from overseas. Other countries may well be starting to open up to international travel, but people wanting to visit Japan are going to have to wait until the rules on the Japanese side ease off. When will that happen? Right now, that remains an unknown. I think it's fair enough to say that most businesses are realistically thinking that it will be next season (2022-2023) before foreign visitors are welcomed back, at least in a major way. For winter sports, anyway. We will see.

Whatever happens in that respect, I intend to be here reporting to you from Niseko over the upcoming 2021-2022 winter season.

Talking of which, here are the official planned opening dates of the ski areas on the mountain:

Planned opening dates:

Niseko Village: Friday 3rd December 2021
Niseko Annupuri: Saturday 4th December 2021
Niseko Grand Hirafu: Saturday 4th December 2021
Niseko Hanazono: Saturday 4th December 2021
Niseko Moiwa: Saturday 4th December 2021


The first snow on the higher elevations was spotted a few weeks ago in the middle of the month. It was good to have some really cold conditions in October. Lets hope we get a really good season of snow.

OK, that's it for the moment. I will be back before the season starts with some updates and news about snow.

There are some changes on the horizon coming to SnowJapan, but it's not really for me to tell you about those. It's something else to look forward to in the coming months. :)

See you soon.
