How do you anticipate the Hokkaido market to be?

With the increasing number of tourists visiting Hokkaido every year, we think Hokkaido is gradually becoming a well-known brand. The Vale Rusutsu is only at the first development stage for the resort, in the future, for accommodating all tourist needs, a large shopping area and more accommodation options shall be incorporated, as well as public space where tourists can bond with the locals.  Rusutsu resort will become THE place where short-term visits and long-term stay needs can both be accommodated.

Heard there are roughly 30 units been sold as of June?

Yes, indeed. Out of the 30 units, 30% were bought by Japanese clients with the rest being from Hong Kong, China and Singapore. Unlike the condominiums in Niseko, The Vale Rusutsu is built in Rusutsu Resort, a place Japanese guests are familiar with and therefore we expect to have more Japanese owners to own a piece of heaven in Rusutsu Resort.
