PREMIER LUXURY RESORT
Perched on a forested hillside with expansive views of Hokkaido’s dramatic Mount Yotei volcano and overlooking idyllic rice fields, the exclusive TELLUS Villas estate is unquestionably Niseko’s premier luxury resort residential address.
Embedded in a bucolic alpine landscape with short distance to ski lifts, village restaurants and all-season resort services, TELLUS Villas is the only architecturally integrated community of luxury trophy homes within Niseko’s fabled Hirafu Village.
A peaceful, pastoral lifestyle is reflected in the unique architecture of each individually designed residence, all of which are consistent with the protected estate-wide character that resonates with the Arcadian landscape.
TELLUS Villas is conveniently located in the heart of the mountainous areas ofJapan with natural winterand summer attractions for the best comfortable views from both seasons.
Under Japanese laws, any type of redevelopment on existing rice fields is prohibited, meaning that every each of these 17 lots has protected front views of the fabled Mount Yotei and it will remain unobstructed for eternity.
Several lots also have views of the Hirafu ski fields which, when illuminated at night, are a spectacular winter evening scene.

THE NISEKO LIFE
Niseko is a world renowned ski resort in Hokkaido, Japan. Its charm is accentuated by majestic mountains, alpine landscape, rich natural resources, opening up a world of imagination in the culinary world, and a variety of activities throughout the year. From spring through to summer you can see the contrast between the remaining snow on Mount Yotei and the fields of green. There is no question that Niseko is the premier ski resort in Asia.
The TELLUS brand and logos combine diverse historical and graphic references into a unique whole which is simultaneously traditional, modern and refined.
The original earth goddess in ancient Roman religion, “TELLUS” here celebrates and protects Niseko’s stunning natural beauty. Yet we have sculpted her name in our logo with a geometry inspired by and resonating with the patterns and designs of Hokkaido’s indigenous Ainu arts and crafts, and reflecting Riccardo Tossani’s minimalist architectural style, to transition the spirit of TELLUS into the local context.
The TELLUS concept is an ideal response to Niseko’s reverberations from the mixing of international cultures and the exhilaration of enjoyment of its natural gifts.
