Hana Yotei: Stunning Development Site near Niseko-Hanazono Resort
Hana Yotei is an expansive area of rolling land located in the Aza-Iwaobetsu area of Niseko-Kutchan.
Covering about 21 hectares, this land benefits from dual road access with the Hanazono side exit less than 5 minutes’ drive from Niseko-Hanazono. The Kutchan side exit is only 2km from the nearest supermarket and restaurants in Kutchan Town and under 5km to the ski lifts of Niseko-Hirafu resort.
At 60,000 JPY per tsubo this offers probably the last chance to join the development opportunities in this unique area of Niseko Resort.
The land boasts multiple features including:
- Stunning views of Mount Yotei from most of the land
- Views of Mount Niseko-Annupuri from the high side of the land
- Beautiful river flowing through the site
- Views over Kutchan Town
- Despite the amazing location the site is totally private, hidden from the main roads
- Less than 2km from Kutchan Town
- Less than 3km from Niseko-Hanazono Resort & Park Hyatt Hanazono, including Hanazono Golf Course
- Less than 5km from the centre of Niseko-Hirafu Resort
- 3km to Kutchan Station, site of the new Bullet Train (Shinkansen) station due to open in 2030 and connecting Kutchan to Tokyo (4 hours) and Sapporo (25 minutes)
With a variety of topographical features, the site lends itself to a hotel and villa site development with a range of options available including Yotei Views, Annupuri Views and Riverside plots.
There are almost no large development land plots remaining in this area and this is a unique opportunity to either land-bank or create your own estate like Hanaridge, Odin Hills, Capella or Hanaceek, where developed land plots are selling for over 500,000 yen per tsubo.
Whether enjoying unspoilt and protected Yotei Views with the sun rising directly over this magnificent mountain, quiet time by the babbling river or the sunset over Mount Annupuri, the houses that are built on this one-of-a-kind site will tick all the boxes.
As the site is over 20 hectares, it is possible to build hotels as well as villas in line with the recent Kutchan development rules.
If you don't know about Niseko yet... where have you been? Best known for the incredible amounts of light, dry powder that blankets the resort each season, with an annual snowfall average of around 15 metres, Niseko has grown beyond the snow into Asia’s most international winter resort, with accommodation and F&B to suit all tastes and budgets, a vibrant nightlife and a comprehensive range of English-language services.
The growth in popularity has been driven not only by the frankly unbelievable amount of snow, but by the development of hotels and homes that have truly turned this mountain resort into the Aspen of Asia. Demand for holiday accommodation is at an all-time high.
Niseko-Hanazono has grown dramatically with recent investments by the resort owners in ski lifts, summer activities and of course the Park Hyatt.
