We have created a meal-kit that allows our guests to easily recreate the tastes of the restaurant awarded one star on ‘Michelin Guide Hokkaido 2017 Special Edition’ at home. As COVID-19 precautions and restrictions continue, we are excited to offer our guests the option to enjoy a special and relaxing meal at home or at a local hotel or guesthouse.

    process is simple, just “warm and serve”. Not only is it possible at home, but also when you are staying in hotels or apartments where cooking utensils and equipment are likely to be restricted. You can prepare a French fine-dining meal at home in just a few minutes!

Background Story of The Project

KAMIMURA is located in “Shiki Niseko” in the center of Niseko Hirafu, and until now, we have mainly
served guests in our restaurant who come from both Japan and overseas.

However, due to the impact of COVID-19 over the past year, we have reduced our restaurant capacity to avoid over-crowding and ensure the safety of our guests. As a result, we have heard from many guests that they “would love to enjoy KAMIMURA at home.” In December of last year, we began selling the dinner meal kits to guests staying at the Chatrium Hotel and a small number of other accommodations nearby.

Now, we are partnering with IGURU to deliver KAMIMURA to private homes and accommodation providers throughout Kutchan and Niseko from 24th March 2021.

Jolly Fox Golf Competition

2021 Jolly Fox Invitational

Jolly Fox Golf Competition

The Jolly Fox is a two-man team, three-round golf tournament, which emphasizes teamwork between a Fox (low-handicapper) and a Mouse (high-handicapper). It is a true test of skill, patience, and endurance both on and off the course.

Foxes are cunning and clever. Mice may be timid and less skilled, but with the right teammate, Mice can perform sensationally.

Be good to your Fox or Mouse. Make sure he gets enough to drink. Keep him clean and out of trouble. If you do so, you may find yourself strolling up the 18th hole on Saturday in contention for the coveted Jolly Fox Invitational Niseko Championship !

Niseko Tourism Website

Niseko comes to life online via new official website

Niseko Tourism's new website is now available in 3 different languages and more great functions to help you plan your next trip!

Niseko Tourism invites past or potential visitors to immerse themselves in Niseko’s four seasons via their new website which launched today.

The site acts as the central source of official information for tourists, and matches the modern atmosphere of Niseko.

Niseko Tourism Marketing Director Acme Wu says it is designed to create an immersive experience with a focus on high quality imagery of the Niseko area, as well as provide official up to date information on news and events.

“Visitors will be able to discover different aspects of Niseko as they navigate through each page of the site, and get a feel for the Niseko brand and holiday experience,” she said. 

Niseko Tourism Website

The new site is designed to carry out Niseko Tourism’s core aims for visitors:

  • Inspire tourists to visit Niseko
  • Help potential visitors plan their trip
  • Help guide tourists who are already in Niseko

Information about Niseko’s seasons and most popular activities has been expanded and made much more accessible. 

Website navigation has been greatly improved making it much easier to find information such as activities, onsen, and how to get to Niseko. 

Additionally, a new “plan a trip section” has been added to provide useful tools for visitors to plan and customise their trip. 

plan a trip

The website has been made available in three languages – English, Japanese and Chinese. Chinese was not available on the old website, and was added due to the ever increasing number of tourists visiting Niseko coming from Chinese-speaking countries.

The Niseko area is popular with tourists from all over the world, and this new website was designed to appeal to an international audience as well as the Japanese market.

The site is integrated with a Chatbot virtual assistant which answers questions to help visitors before they arrive or when they are here.
