In the 2022/23 winter season, access to the Hirafu area will be more convenient with the frequent Hirafu Free Shuttle Bus.
In addition to the Niseko United Shuttle Bus that connects the four major resorts, the Hirafu area free loop bus will operate again this year.
This year, the shuttle is painted red and features a snow mountain motif, so it's easily recognisable from a distance.
|Operating Dates||Operating Area||Operating Times|
|15 December, 2022 - 28 February, 2023||Kabayama Area > Hirafu Ski Resort Welcome Center > Niseko Hirafu Area||Hirafu: Approx every 20 minutes. Kabayama & Izumikyo Area: Approx every 30 minutes.|
Equipped with GPS function
Starting this year, a new system that allows users to check bus operation information in real-time via GPS is being used, making it even more convenient.
Instead of waiting out in the cold, you can receive real-time location updates and only go outside when the bus is approaching. The official website will be released sequentially from early December.
