I have been living and working in Niseko since 2008. During that time I have worked extensively in many fields including real estate sales, development planning, hospitality and asset management. I also own the popular bar, Niseko Taproom, which is located in the heart of Hirafu. I have been involved with a number of major developments such as the Vale, Skye, Midtown and The Park Hyatt. As such, have had a front-row seat for the development that Niseko has experienced over the last 10 years and have seen the resort transform from a sleepy ski town into a globally recognised destination.
