Visitor Reviews of Niseko Hirafu

Jason from Japan writes:

Hirafu is an awesome resort town. If you're looking for something to do aside from hitting the slopes, look elsewhere. As with most of Japan, it is a powder paradise, only here you are allowed off-piste. Some of the resorts on the main island of Honshu are just starting that with the recent popularity boom of back country in Japan. Niseko is the best place I have ever ridden so far.
