The 5 Best Day Spas in Niseko
Time to pamper yourself
A pre-ski massage when you arrive is a great way to begin your holiday after a tiring journey. And after a long day on the slopes, nothing beats a soak in the bath and a nice aromatherapy massage. A good massage improves circulation and increases muscle and tendon elasticity, which could reduce the chance of injury on the slopes and the onset of muscle soreness. Here's your definitive guide to some of Niseko's best day spas:
Le Spa Kimamaya
WAKKA SPA | HILTON NISEKO VILLAGE
Its name 'Wakka Spa' is derived from the Ainu language meaning 'water spa'. Voted as one of Japan's top 10 spas, Wakka Spa offers relaxing beauty and facial treatments, therapies and massages that harness nature's resource to restore balance to both body and mind. The spa features four treatment rooms, including a custom-designed room with a Hinoki wood bath for couples.

LE SPA | KIMAMAYA HIRAFU
After a long day with your nose buried in deep powder, wrestling trouts out of raging streams, or riding horseback on mountain trails, you deserve a moment of indulgence. Start by soaking in Kimamaya's wood or stone spa tubs, before rejuvenating your body with a Japanese shiatsu, aromatherapy or full body massage.
- Book your appointment in advance, and arrive at least 10 minutes before. This allows you to have more time to relax without feeling rushed or frazzled.
- Don't be shy to ask the therapist to increase or decrease the pressure.
- If you are feeling too cold or too warm, ask for blankets to be added/removed.
