Meet Danny Geerken, a visitor who fell in love with the Soga area of Niseko so much that he wants you to come too!
Since the age of four I have loved skiing and it's been a lifelong passion for me. Some years back I watched one of my favorite chefs, Anthony Bourdain, in an episode on Niseko and that got me very enthusiastic about the area and fuelled my desire to visit. Up until then I really only knew about skiing in Europe and all the talk about the amount of snow that Niseko receives got me so excited. Coupled with the interest in the local food that Anthony Bourdain had shown, I couldn't wait to visitl
After a lot of desk research I visited Japan with my family for the first time in 2016 and we have been back many times since. The skiing is fantastic as are the culinary experiences, natural setting and atmosphere in the resort.
After many visits I decided to get involved in the exciting real estate market in the area. Having spent so much time all over Niseko I had been fortunate enough to visit each of the four resorts, but I knew that I wanted something a little different. So I settled on a large piece of land in the Soga district of Niseko. Located in between the Niseko Village and Annupuri resort bases, it's a great location to access both Niseko United and Moiwa ski resorts in winter and only a few minutes drive from several golf courses in summer.
I wanted to keep the land affordable, because I want to share this special place with others. Our plots are set amidst farmland away from the hustle and bustle of the resort bases and have excellent views of Mount Yotei. With the access to the resort bases only a few minutes by car, the price tag is very reasonable.
But the icing on the cake for me is that when I found the Soga land, I discovered it is a mere 15 minute walk to the famous Rakuichi Soba, featured in that Anthony Bourdain show that first piqued my interest! As soon as we can travel to Japan we will be sure to visit again.
