Located at the base of the serene and beautiful Hanazono ski area within the Niseko United resort, Freedom Inn is a red brick inn constructed with locally produced materials of the highest quality and inspired by classic lodgings in New England and Europe. We are surrounded by forests and streams and nestled in a valley surrounded by the dramatic volcanic peaks of Mt. Yotei, Mt. Iwao and Mt. Annupuri.

As the only hotel in Hanazono, Freedom Inn guests have each morning virtually a private ski mountain with some of Niseko’s best terrain and certainly the best powder. Avoid the lift lines and crowds at other parts of the resort and have virtually guaranteed access each day to fresh tracks.

Freedom Inn provides complementary shuttle service in the evenings to all the best restaurants in Kutchan and Hirafu, so you will not miss out on the Niseko’s famous après ski offerings while coming back to the tranquility of an unspoiled Niseko for the best night’s sleep you can find anywhere.

The Hanazono 308 day facility, with ski schools, restaurant, Demo rentals and Adventure Park, as well as the ski lifts are a five minute walk from our front door. Snowshoeing and Nordic skiing are available, with the majestic Hanazono golf course also only minutes away. Other adventures, including 19km of snowmobile track, are nearby and we will be happy to make arrangements for you with one of the many expert mountain guides who have made Niseko famous.
