Kimamaya by Odin is small in size, but large in emotion. Just nine rooms created by designer Andrew Bell, that offer charm, comfort and a distinctly personal, cosy experience. Most of all, they capture the essence of the alpine atmosphere of Hokkaido with a cosmopolitan touch thrown in.

Built in 1985 and redesigned in 2009, Kimamaya by Odin is a cosy micro-boutique hotel set in the heart of Niseko’s Hirafu village in Hokkaido, Japan.Kimamaya is a member of Design Hotels. 

The fully renovated building has retained all the authenticity and charm of the laid-back lodge originally envisioned by Yasuo and Keiko Watanabe 30 years ago. Albeit with a renewed focus on pleasing the senses and capturing unforgettable moments.

Located right in the heart of Niseko’s Hirafu middle village, Kimamaya is part of Odin’s vision to bring intelligent luxury to one of the world’s great snow resorts.
