Modern Convenience. Exclusive Tranquility.

Akagera: Great Spotted Woodpecker, a mountain bird. Akagera is a pioneer and one of the first homes located in the Escarpment Estate. The name was chosen to reflect the freedom granted by the location to escape into the tranquility of the mountains and yet, with just a flutter of the wings easily transition back into the convenience of the township that is Hirafu. Convenience and tranquility within minutes of each other and yet still mutually exclusive.

Brought to life by Sudo Homes in 2010, Akagera was meticulously crafted by the minds of Konichi Architects. Tucked away in a quiet corner of the lower village, it is all too easy to miss unless you know where to look. As Hirafu continues to expand and grow exponentially, the number of sites that remain truly tranquil continue to dwindle. This is where the Escarpment Estates’ exclusivity comes into play and will continue to do so in the foreseeable future.

Featuring not one, but two long balconies on separate floors, Akagera boasts stunning unobstructed views of Mt Yotei through-out all 4 seasons. Enjoy the cotton-like powder views from the warmth of the home or soak up the sprawling greenery and sunny weather from the balcony, the 4 bedroom home transforms based on the season. Wake up in the morning to unobstructed magnificent views of Mt. Yotei, then take a short 5 minute drive into the heart of town to spend the day skiing Niseko’s champagne powder or golfing in it’s beauty, depending on the season, enjoying the abundance of good food and drink, a soak in the onsen, and just as easily head back to the peace and quiet of your accommodation.
