Nisekoz Developments was formed when a group of mad Aussies first came to Niseko in 2001 and thought that they had died and gone to powder heaven. We decided that we wanted to help spread the word about this fantastic area so we invested in building our first lodge – Gouka Lodge.

We chose the name Gouka (“Go-ka”) because it translates roughly into “beautiful” or “luxurious” and this to us summed up our vision to create comfortable places that we ourselves would love to go. The kanji character for Gouka is also the root of the kanji for Australia – which is literally Gouka + Continent or “Beautiful Continent”.

We completed Gouka Lodge for the 2007/08 season and it has exceeded our expectations in terms of comfort, location and amenities. We think our guests agree with us, having a building repeat clientele.

We welcome all of our clients to feel free to contact us at any time or let us know if anything could be improved about their experience with Gouka Lodges. Please feel free to Contact Us (an e-mail will be sent to the Nisekoz directors).


The owners of Gouka Lodges are avid skiers and boarders and have invested in Niseko as it is our favourite all-around ski resort.  We believe that it competes favourably with any North-American or European ski resort for après-ski and it has some of the best and most reliable powder in the world!
