Tourism & Property Review - Report by C9 Hotelworks

Land appreciation cooling despite surge in Hirafu and Hanazono areas

Dollar yen exchange rate may set stage for property market rebound

“Despite the government’s closed border policies shutting down the overseas market for over two years, Niseko’s domestic tourism has been resilient. In Q12022, total visitors to Niseko were 288,670, growing by 14% compared to the same period in 2021.

Niseko’s winter tourism market and high-value foreign segment is connected to the real estate sector. As a result, commercial land prices in 2022 decelerated. This trend was also seen in residential land prices, where growth was 12% in 2022, down for 40% in 2020, and 25% for 2021. Comparing Niseko to other Japanese alpine resort areas, Furano was 18% and Hakuba 17%.

Hanazono, Hirafu and Niseko Village/Higashiyama remain the top three destination in the project pipeline. There remains a strong push for luxury projects outside of the mainstream Hirafu area driven by the lack of prime land and rising prices.

Two factors that may hamper wider destination growth are aging ski facilities and potential changes to the area development and more restrictive zoning by the government.

In C9 Hotelworks opinion, the restart of Japan’s tourism sector and the favourable dollar yen exchange rate will revitalise the transaction market in short to medium term, as pent-up demand will induce a market tailwind” – Bill Barnett, Managing Director, C9 Hotelworks.

New Therapy Available at Aya Spa

Performed by a therapist certified by the International Stem Cell Dissemination Organization

First “Human Bone Marrow Stem Cell Culture Supernatant Introduction” in HokkaidoStem Cells Beauty)」

*At AYA Niseko, located at the foot of one of Hokkaido’s leading ski resorts “Niseko Tokyu Grand Hirafu”. We have started a facial treatment to introduce “Human Bone Marrow Stem Cell Culture Supernatant”, Hokkaido’s first therapist certified by the International Stem Cell Dissemination Organization will be stationed at AYA Spa for treatment. The “Stem Cell Culture Supernatant” used for treatment is also limited to those derived from human bone marrow (Mesenchymal Stem Cells).

“Stem Cell Culture Supernatant” is a supernatant solution in which stem cells and impurities existing in the human body are removed from the culture solution and treated with sterilization or the like. Supernatant contains a variety of growth factors (cytokines) that promote cell activity. Under the supervision of a doctor, the theory of the field of regenerative medicine was utilized for beauty, and a safe and secure “introduction of human bone marrow Stem Cell Culture Supernatant” was born.

Unlike general skin care, cytokines contained in the supernatant can act on the skin at the cellular level, such as anti-inflammatory action, angiogenesis, and function to induce stem cells in the body, so a lasting effect is expected.

*Special price (treatment: 90 to 100 minutes) 27,500 yen (tax included) *Please make a reservation in advance.

 

Store name: AYA Spa Location: 1st floor in AYA Niseko Hotel

Telephone: 0136-23-4688
