INVESTMENT CASE

ASIAN SKI TOURISM ON THE RISE

  • Sharp rise in Chinese visitors after visa restrictions were relaxed.
  • Popular with Australians heading north in search of snow.
  • Visitor numbers increasing year on year – the 2012/13 season saw the highest tourism level since 2007.
  • Just a four-hour flight away for more than half the world’s population.
  • 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo will draw focus and drive interest in national sports and tourism.

SMALL-TOWN CHARM ATTRACTS OVERSEAS SKIERS AND INVESTORS

  • Niseko boasts a growing international reputation as a boutique alternative skiing destination.
  • The Wall Street Journal recently published an in-depth article about the growing number of international investors who have decided that the case for Niseko is a too good to miss out on.
  • A recent Financial Times article highlighted Niseko for its good property value and increasing popularity among Asian buyers.
  • Beyond tourism – according to the second bi-annual Candy GPS Report, produced by Candy & Candy, Savills World Research and Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management, Niseko numbers among one of the few second-home destinations for the ultra-wealthy of Asia and Australia.

SURGING LOCAL DEVELOPMENT

Big developers from around the region are moving to take advantage of the projected increase in attention on Niseko, with a surge in development now underway. Projects that have been on hold since the onset of the Global Financial Crisis have been resumed in anticipation of the upcoming rise in demand.

NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME TO INVEST

  • According to a recent squarefoot.com.hk article on Investment Potentials in Ski Resorts, “Niseko gains momentum each passing year, and with the Japanese economy recovering on the heels of Abenomics and the yen at a favourable rate, Hokkaido could be home to the next great ski boom”.
  • The weak Japanese Yen won’t stay weak – investors may need to act soon if they wish to take advantage of the current currency situation to bolster their return potential.
  • The Japanese government recently announced a 3% increase to the national sales tax – taking effect in April 2014, the tax will be applied to the building portion of any Japanese property purchase, so investors should be wary that properties purchased just four months from now and beyond will carry higher costs.
