Wallpaper Magazine Sapporo City Guide

“Book one of nine boutique rooms at the Annupuri Lodge. It’s positioned beside the gondola, so access to pristine pistes is right on your doorstep.”


Conde Naste’s Concierge.Com

“Stay at Annupuri Lodge, with nine minimalist rooms in black and natural woods, its own bar (the fortuitously named Luckyfingers), and a hot spring bathhouse. It’s also less than a minute’s walk to the main gondola.”


Time Out Tokyo

“For a comfy mid-range stay, you’ll do well at Annupuri Lodge, across from Del Sole. Located in beautiful Annupuri Village, it’s breakfasts are hearty and its knowledgeable staff speak English. Its onsite ski school, Niseko Winterlab, offers guidance and lessons on the slopes.”


Outdoor Japan Magazine

“Only a one-minute walk from the Annupuri Gondola, and a five-minute walk to the onsen, Annupuri Lodge is inexpensive, modern and family friendly. Guests can pop across the road to a fantastic brick-oven pizza place or duck around the corner to the all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ. The lodge’s own Luckyfingers Bar is a chic addition and reflects the owner’s entertainment background with a real Roulette table and purple velvet walls.”


Islands Magazine

Annupuri Lodge owner, Matt Naiman, speaks to Isands Magazine about how the lodge came to be:
“When I was a child, my grandparents built a private 30-person ski lodge at the base of Mt. Snow in Vermont. We used to winter there. I remember it as a place where friends and family would gather have the greatest time. So one day, an American friend in Niseko called me and said that a lodge, two minutes from the gondola, was for sale and that I should check it out.. This seemed like a great opportunity to recreate that magical atmosphere from my childhood. So I flew up the next day and somehow made it happen. It doesn’t hurt that Niseko averages about 50 feet of dry, powdery snow per season.”
