SAKURA chalet is located right in the middle of Rusutsu village - ski and adventure resort of Hokkaido! Professionals say that Rusutsu has the best quality of snow powder - very soft and fluffy, covering 37 of its beautiful runs with total length of 42 km, for all levels of skiers. It is just 5-7 mins walking from SAKURA house to access the network of 19 ski lifts.

Rusutsu is the first Japanese ski domain to be awarded for the "Best Resort" by The Great Skiing & Snowboarding Guide, a British ski magazine. According to the survey by View Communications, Japanese NPO, skiers ranked Rusutsu domain as the most satisfying among 48 ski resorts in Japan.

Apart from skiing or snowboarding, Rusutsu area offers a whole range of winter activities, like snow mobile, horseback riding, snow-shoe and cross-country skiing. After all that, it is exceptionally joyful to take a warm bath in the near-by hot springs.
In the summer you can opt for perfect golf fields, amusement park, rafting or go bathing in marvelous Lake Toya.

There are several places to eat and shop in the near proximity. Visitors really love Hokkaido specialties from a brasserie Pirateman, Bar Captain, and family-run noodle shop Jaga Ramen! Neighboring towns (20-30 mins drive) offer limitless gastronomy experiences up to a Michelin-star restaurant.

New Chitose Sapporo is the closest airport with extensive international connections. Best way to get to Rusutsu from the airport is by "Resort Liner" buses. Trip takes 2 hrs and costs JPY 3,000 per person one-way.
Several scheduled busses of DONAN Bus Co. leave from JR Sapporo Station every day (JPY 2,100 per person), with extra buses added in winter. The bus stops for a break on Nakayama Toge peak and offers a terrific view of Mt. Yotei, often called “The Fujiyama of Hokkaido”.

During summers, Rusutsu Resort operates free shuttle busses from-to Sapporo JR Station two times a day. Advanced booking for the bus is needed.

Travel time by car:
New Chitose Airport: 86 km (90 min)
Sapporo City: 72 km (90 min)
Hirafu / Niseko: 33 km (40 min)
Lake Toya: 19 km (30 min)

For your convenience, it is possible to rent a locker for ski equipment just near the lift for ‎¥300 per day ($3). Normally the walking distance is not too long, about 700-800 m (0.5 miles), but some people prefer not to bother and rent a ski locker by the slope.

We had a great stay, the chalet was clean and had everything we needed. The beer in the fridge was a nice touch as well. Thanks.

It is just the perfect place to experience ski in Japan! The chalet is is just amazing: light walk to the ski lifts, calm, cosy and fully equiped for the trips. Ivan is very available and helpfull as a host. Nature around the chalet and in Rusutsu is beautyful and most importantly the snow is just amazing: there is much more that you could even dream off! I'm used to ski in the Alps (Switzerland and France) and here is paradise in comparison. We did amazing ski touring and we could even ski back to the chalet! I would definitely come back and hope to be lucky to rent it again.
