Up to four nights free accommodation is being offered to skiers and snowboarders who visit Niseko during the coming northern hemisphere ski season.
Inbound tour operator SkiJapan.com is making the free nights offer for accommodation between Dec 17 and March 2, 2012 as an incentive for skiers to travel to Niseko, which this year celebrates the 50th anniversary of the first ski lift opening in the area.
Now with 61 ski runs and 30 lifts in the four-resort area, including a new high-speed gondola that opens this year, Niseko attracts more than 20,000 foreign skiers and snowboarders each season, making it one of the leading ski destinations outside Europe and North America.
The SkiJapan.com 'Free Nights Frenzy' package applies to its self-contained apartments and provides four nights free accommodation for visitors who pay for ten nights. Those paying for seven nights receive three free nights, while five paid nights receives two free nights and four paid nights receives one night free.
"Niseko was completely unaffected by the earthquake in March and is more than 600 kilometers away from the affected area on Honshu," said SkiJapan.com general manager, Marcus William. "Being situated on the northern island of Hokkaido, Niseko, its businesses and people have not been directly affected."
Nevertheless, as an extra assurance, SkiJapan.com is offering customers staying in selected properties an 100% money-back guarantee if their clients' home government raises a 'Do Not Travel' warning and they are forced to cancel within thirty to seven days of their scheduled arrival date in Niseko.
Another option is for Niseko visitors who do not wish to travel through Tokyo to fly via Hong Kong, from where there are direct connections to Sapporo on Cathay Pacific.© Asia Travel Tips
