Snow Dog was the best choice that I made for Niseko. We had a really nice condo having one queen bed room, one bathroom, and one living room with a kichen. They have a free shuttle to Hilton and Hirafu every hour, as well as ski equipment store area! Highly recommended!

Definitely A Yes!
It was a comfortable stay with everything provided for in the apartment. A little tight for 5 but manageable for a short stay. We had 2 bedrooms to fit 4 comfortably and the 5th person was on the sofa bed which took up the entire living room space. The limited movement space was compensated by the excellent service. We felt very welcomed right from the beginning when we were greeted by Mike and he also popped in on our last day instead of us going to the reception for check out. And we just passed him the keys. Small but thoughtful gesture.
