Winter Season Safety Prayers Held

We recently held a joint safety festival for Niseko Tokyu Grand Hirafu, Niseko Hanazono Resort, and Asahigaoka Ski Resort.

We also held a ceremony to unveil a poster against drunk driving created in cooperation with the Kutchan Police Station, and we hope to be a safe and secure ski resort in cooperation with each organization to welcome tourists from all over the world and local residents.

After the prayer ceremony, an opening party was held to celebrate the start of the winter season with many people in attendance.

The winter season has finally arrived. We look forward to welcoming you all!
