It’s been a challenging couple of seasons, to say the least. Amongst all the madness brought on by the pandemic, nature did not conform to the chaos, treating us to an unlimited supply of Japan’s finest powder. We, lucky locals, were very fortunate, however, we truly missed the crowds of life and laughter that normally sweep through the town.
With most of the population inoculated, and lockdown restrictions coming to an end, things are finally looking up! Knowing that we are one step closer to welcoming back our international friends has spurred the crew at Rhythm to work collectively to move past this challenge. We’ve expanded to introduce new Rhythm products in preparation – and we want to make sure your trip really makes up for the time missed.
Here’s an insight into the latest Rhythm services on offer and what’s been happening in town!

Today, we are proud to introduce Rhythm Summit, located right in the heart of Happo-One. This new space is specifically designed to capture your retail needs.

Let’s take a look at what’s been happening around town…
1. FIRST SNOW CITED
During our preparation for winter operations, nature decided to give us a preview of the white stuff. Social media blew up on 17th October, with the first flakes of the season falling in Niseko! & just 2 days later, Hakuba followed suit.
If this season is anything like the last, we are all in for a treat.
