    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."

    Nicolas Gontard

    Kimamaya by Odin is the product of Frenchman Nicolas Gontard's vision and passion. After selling an Asia-based international telecommunications business in 2006, he instinctively felt it was too early to retire to his vineyards in Burgundy. Together with Norwegian partners Bjorn and Chris Fjelddahl, he embarked on building a luxury brand of residential properties and hospitality products. This venture led to great success—and then a third, more unexpected chapter in Gontard’s life. Following an eye-opening trip to Myanmar, he decided to dedicate much of his time and resources to educating underprivileged children. The non-profit school he opened in the Philippines is now transforming lives and has left Gontard feeling proud in a way that, despite his past business success, he’d couldn’t previously imagine.
