Rusutsu Lodges

We offer a conveniently located lodge in the middle of the ski fields (the closest resort is less than a 5-minute walk!) The area is quiet for those who want to get away from the crowds in nearby Niseko but still enjoy incredible powder.

For the green season, the ski resort close by turns into a theme park. The mountains surrounding the lodge open to excellent hiking. You can enjoy rafting or sap in the rivers and we have a car that volunteers can use to explore the region. Toya Lake is a must-see - a good challenge to loop on a bicycle.

We are a good company to work for; we don't expect you to be a robot or superhuman. We do, however, expect teamwork - we are here to have fun - BUT - we have to work hard too. Respect is important to your co-workers and helping each other out when needed.

With us, if you work more than the allotted hours for your accommodation costs we pay a wage in accordance with Japanese law.

We want both work exchange workers but also individuals who are willing to work more when it's busy to help the team.

If you are interested, send us a message - let us know directly what you are looking for and we will see if our goals fit together.

We treat everyone with the up-most respect and expect the same in return. We expect team players who will work together with other staff to make a hard job easier, a boring job more fun. Work hard, play hard?

I stayed at the lodge for a month and would definitely recommend it to others. The host and staff are all extremely welcoming and friendly, and the town itself is beautiful. A perfect spot for avid snowboarders

Jessica was an amazing host, her vibes and way of thinking are unique and special!
I really enjoyed my stay at Rusutsu Lodges, I went during spring and there wasn't much to do because it was off-season.
But she came up with cleaning and graphic design tasks that I could help her with. She was clear and gentle when giving me instructions on what to do it made things easy and enjoyable.
People always came over to hang out, cook together, and bbq. And it was lots of fun.
The experience exceeded my expectations and I want to go back and meet them again!!
Thank you very much, Jessica!
