Save the future of Niseko
A lot of people have visited Niseko this season. We hope that not only tourists but people working in this area enjoyed great powder snow and night life. On the other hand, it is a sad fact that trouble broke out. The number of troubles continues its steady rise. There may come some serious problems at some point.
It’s almost the end of this season but many tourists will still come. Let’s cooperate to save the future of Niseko.
