On the slopes of Mount Moiwa, Niseko’s finest gem, lies Aman’s fourth Japanese property. It will open in 2023. Like the other three Amans in Japan (Aman Tokyo, Amanemu, and Aman Kyoto), Aman Niseko was also designed by Kerry Hill. His design complements its pristine natural setting, the property epitomises Aman’s devotion to detail while embodying the renowned thoughtfulness of Japanese hospitality. The architectural concept was deliberately contemporary, with subtle references to traditional design motifs of Hokkaido’s indigenous people, the Ainu.
