Living in Niseko might seem tough, but working here as a builder can be hard work as well as a seemingly endless race against time. But these guys know what they are doing and we have good news all round from some of the local building projects!
Hirafuzaka Road Heating
The local council have come good and completed the road and pavement heating on Hirafuzaka. So this year there will be no need to slip and slide your way up or down the hill...enjoy walking on your nice new heated pavement! Check out the latest video courtesy of 360niseko.
The largest project in Niseko this Winter, and indeed for many years, Ki Niseko is to open on schedule this December. With up to 200 builders working seemingly around the clock, it hasn't been easy but it's fantastic news for Niseko-Hirafu to see this brand new ski-in ski-out onsen hotel opening, along with the much anticipated An Dining restaurant.
Situated on Hirafuzaka in between Rhythm Snowsports and Setsumon Condominium is another new building. Built and developed by a Singaporean group, Nozomi Views will provide high-end accommodation in a series of 1 or 2 bedroom apartments with luxury furnishings and fantastic views of Mt Yotei.
Niseko Village Shopping Centre
YTL, the company behind Niseko Hilton and the Niseko Village Resort Area, have been working hard and come up with a mini shopping area. Set up to remind Guests of traditional Japanese architecture seen in places like Kyoto, there will be a handful of shops, bars and restaurants for you to explore. Due to open in early December, we'll keep you up to date with what you can do there!
