Black Diamond Lodge – The Best Ski Lodge in Japan

Black Diamond Lodge is renowned as the powder hunters lodge in Niseko, Japan. For over a decade we have been honored to call ourselves home to powder nomads from across the globe.

The lodge provides a casual atmosphere with a mix of Japanese tatami rooms, western style rooms, and dorm accommodations making it perfect for varying group sizes and budgets. The friendly staff is comprised of skiers and snowboarders who love Japan for the endless powder days; they are quick on suggesting the best resorts and touring areas around. Unfortunately due to limited timing, the restaurant will be closed for the 2022-23 season but we hope to be back soon serving up a rotating menu of both traditional Japanese dishes and western fare. The good news for our staying guests is that the bar area will become a private lounge space for staying guests.

Located a short distance from the base of Niseko Village resort Black Diamond Lodge is on of the only lodges in Niseko Village to offer a ski-to-your-door experience. We also provide free shuttles to nearby resorts for our guests and special guided packages and discount rates from our partner companies, Black Diamond Tours and Hokkaido Backcountry Club.

No matter what your budget or preference is, from doing it on your own, to fully guided and catered adventures when you check in at the Black Diamond Lodge you can expect to find a place to call home. And with access to our partner brands: Black Diamond Tours and the Hokkaido Backcountry Club we can help you put together the trip of a lifetime. We are the only choice for serious powder travelers in Hokkaido.
