Most likely you will be arriving to Hokkaido by way of the New Chitose Airport (Sapporo’s main airport). The best way to organise a bus to/from Chitose airport and Niseko is to book it yourself. Here is the link of the best and fastest transfer option to the Moiwa area

This ‘Niseko Airport Shuttle’ service wipes 1 hour off the traditional journey time from New Chitose airport which stops at a heap of other resorts on the way! Unlike other buses that service the area, this stops in Moiwa BEFORE the rest of Niseko, so it is very fast.

We will only pick up guests arriving in the Moiwa area, so book your bus to the ONE NISEKO hotel in Moiwa.

The steps to follow:
1)Book your transfer on the Niseko Shuttle Bus website
Be sure to allow at least 1 hour between the scheduled flight arrival time and the bus departure time. Your destination should be booked as One Niseko – this is the bus stop in Moiwa.
2)Once you receive confirmation, please email this to us at

1.We will NOT be able pick you up if you do not let us know your arrival time, so make sure you let us know!
2.We do NOT pick up passengers in the Moiwa area after 10.30pm (our staff need their sleep!)
3.You MUST book your transfer at least 4 days prior to your arrival, otherwise they will not accept your booking. If you miss this deadline, don’t stress too much - you will need to just turn up to the airport and jump on the next available transfer. The buses run regularly during the times that most flights arrive.

Once you have booked your transfer, you MUST notify us of your arrival time. Please email it to
