Ecol is a nature learning studio filled with amazing and fun facts about the geography, flora and fauna of Niseko Annupuri. Why not join one of Ecol’s nature guides to learn about Niseko’s natural environment while enjoying the nature on one of our walking courses.
This walk will introduce you to some of the flowers and mushrooms that are currently to be found in the meadows around Ecol. Your guide will reveal all the wondrous facts about even the tiniest flowers blooming at your feet. This quick course is doable even on a tight schedule, so don’t miss this memorable addition to your Niseko trip.
Take time to observe the trees, flowers, insects and mushrooms that are to be found in the meadows around Ecol.
If you take the time to really look, you will discover that seemingly insignificant little plants and animals are actually full of wonder! Observing nature as a family is also a great educational project to enjoy over the summer vacation.
At Nature Learning Studio Ecol, we display photos, handmade models, specimens and information panels to show in an easy-to-understand way how plants, mushrooms, insects, birds and animals coexist in Niseko’s rich natural environment.
Make your very own original doll, photo frame or other piece of craftwork from natural materials like twigs, leaves and nuts sourced in the Niseko area.
At Mini Ecol, you can find some Ecol exhibits as well as a range of pamphlets.
The Kutchan Natural History Museum is located in Kutchan town, 10 minutes from the station by car. Visitors can view exhibits about the nature of Niseko and Mount Yotei and hear fascinating insights from the curator. Visit the museum in combination with Ecol for double the fun!
