Toward autonomous creation

In Japan, the population is declining nationwide, and it is feared that it will have a significant impact on the lives of local residents, local economy, local administration, etc. in the future.
Niseko Town, where the population is increasing, is expected to be affected soon and turn to a decline in the future. For this reason, while taking into account medium- and long-term population trends, we are working on “self-government revitalization,” a town development that can accurately respond to immediate challenges and continue to live in peace and abundance with peace of mind.



2020 (2020) We have formulated the "Second term Niseko Town comprehensive self-government creation strategy" starting from April.
