Going to Niseko after May 6th, 2019 2019/1/9 17:29
Hi! We will be in Hokkaido May 8th, planning to visit Niseko, is it still recommended? we are not looking to ski but just want to experience snow and maybe just explore the town? will most of the restaurants and hotels be operational? Thanks

Around days schedule is the key.

If you're not going to ski, then I would say a visit to Niseko is not recommended at that timne of year. There's nothing really of interest in the town to warrant a visit just for general sightseeing. There should still be some snow but you'll see that elsewhere in Hokkaido and won't need to make a special trip to Niseko just for that.

Most hotels will still be open but it's right at the tail end of the season and some of the restaurants will probably be closed by that point.

Thank you so much for your recommendation. This really helps me. May i ask if you can recommend a place in Hokkaido where we can experience snow, preferably with a hotel/ resort where we can stay where there is snow around the property?

You can visit to ski resorts in Sapporo city. Some of them are open May 6.

It is ok no ski, just enjoy snow, and restaurants are available ski resorts.
