In December, the first clinic with English speaking doctors and nurses will open in Yamada district Kutchan Town Shiribeshi prefecture. This will be the first clinic in the district due to increasing foreign patients with ski injury or sudden sickness.

The name of the clinic is “Niseko International Clinic”. It’s a 2-story building, approximately 300 square meters and located on the Rankoshi Niseko Kutchan line – only a few minutes car ride from the Niseko Grand Hirafu ski resort.

The Clinic Director, Dr. Kunitake Moroi (38 years old), who currently works at “Himawari Clinic Kyogoku-cho” will team up with another part-time foreign doctor. Examinations such as x-rays or ultrasounds will be available. All consulting and treatment process will be supported in English. The clinic is planning to open this winter from December to March and aiming to open all year round next year.
