Kimamaya by Odin
Even as the snowflakes start to fall, adding soft powder to the slopes outside, Kimamaya by Odin remains toasty-warm. Kimamaya is the Japanese word for “be yourself” and here, you can do just that. Kimamaya by Odin, a nine-room mountain lodge in Niseko, one of Japan's most popular ski resorts, has year-round appeal. During summer and fall, pristine trails and mountain-biking tracks snake through the surrounding pine forests. After a rigorous day of sport, stop by The Barn restaurant, inspired by traditional Hokkaido farm architecture, where fresh produce is served with French flair and warm hospitality. Afterwards, retire to the homey Living Lounge, where all that's left to worry about is which wine you'll sip as you laze by the fireplace. Kimamaya by Odin proudly bears the Odin brand. Created by Nicolas Gontard and his Norwegian partners Bjorn and Chris Fjelddahl, the brand is dedicated to developing real estate and creating hospitality experiences that encompass "intelligent luxury."
