A Day off the Mountain: A Trip to Yoichi and Nikka Whiskey

The beauty of having a car while in Niseko.

For purveyors of fine whiskey or those who want a day off the slopes and to explore a bit, a visit to Yoichi and the Nikka distillery is great and short drive. Grab a designated driver and make the drive to the small seaside town of Yoichi only about 50 minutes from Kutchan on route 5; the drive itself is interesting too, over a mountain pass with a tunnel at the top.
