Published on : Friday, March 29, 2019

Japan is experiencing a boom in tourists from China. As per official figures, visitors from China increased four-fold over a five-year period, from 1.4 million in 2012 to 7.4 million in 2017, overtaking South Korea as the top source of visitors to Japan.

 

Ski resort regions like Niseko, in Japan’s northern Hokkaido prefecture, are witnessing the flow of tourists from China.

 

In Kutchan, a town near the Niseko ski resorts, Australians comprise the largest share of international tourism market, registering 96,545 overnight stays in 2017. At the same time, the town has recorded strong growth with visitors from Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and the United States. The number of overnight stays by visitors from China, meanwhile, surged to 32,817 in 2017, going up 74 percent from the previous year.

 

To cater to this tourist inflow, an upmarket Park Hyatt Hotel is being built at Hanazono.

 

Hanazono’s operators would also roll out new “state of the art” ski chairlifts with heated seats and Wi-Fi, subject to government approval. Meanwhile, ziplines, pulley and cable rides are also expected to be built soon to entice thrill seekers.
