“Star Fes” has Niseko seeing stars

On the 22nd and 23rd of July, Niseko Annupuri Ski Resort is giving Hokkaido the opportunity to experience the awe-inspiring admiration you can only achieve when gazing upon the astral bodies above!

From 12:00 – 21:00, ticket-buyers will be able to take part in an exclusive star-watching workshop; which includes professional guidance and tips from telescopic and photographic experts at Vixen; Arts & Crafts sessions for kids, free parking – and if you bring your own equipment along to the event – space photography lessons from an experienced professional cameraman and photographer!
