Getting Here

Boot Solutions has two shop locations in Japan;  Niseko, Hokkaido and Hakuba, Honshu. Here are some details on how to get to each of our locations.


Our Niseko store is very centrally located in upper Hirafu. If you head up the hill from the traffic lights (the only lights in town), we are three doors up on the right hand side, on the ground floor of the Nozomi Views building. We are right next door to Rhythm Snowsports. 

Hirafu Village Grand Shuttle Bus: If you are staying in Hirafu, free shuttle buses run throughout Hirafu every 15 minutes all day every day until the end of night skiing. Get off at stop 7 (the Firehouse), which is outside Rhythm Snowsports. Here is the shuttle bus map.

Niseko United Shuttle Service: If you are staying outside of Grand Hirafu, there is the Niseko United shuttle service running every 20 minutes that connects with Niseko Town, Niseko Village, Grand Hirafu and Kutchan.  There is a shuttle stop outside Rhythm Snowsports (right next door to us).  Here is the 2016/2017 timetable.
