Reuse of Niseko Central Warehouse Group


Niseko Central Warehouse Group Old starch factory

Warehouse group which was once crowded as agricultural product accumulation place.
Again the townspeople and tourists gathered in this group of warehouses, and after considering repeatedly as a place to rebuild as a new bustling place, it was born again as a "Niseko central warehouse group" from the year of Heisei 28.
It is used as a base for revitalizing the area gathered by local residents and tourists.

What is Central Warehouse Group


Niseko station (then · Kota station) Around

From Taisho to Showa era, many stone warehouse groups, starch factories, etc. were lined up as Niseko station (then · Kota station) around agricultural products of Mt. Yotei.
In the warehouse group that still remains, there are stone warehouses built in 1980 and the former starch factory built in the Showa 40s.

Warehouse group of historical building

Existing warehouse groups were used by a similar agricultural cooperative, but in the fall of Heisei 20, the warehouse function moved to the newly built warehouse.
In the town, we aim to preserve the warehouse group after relocation as a historical building and to reuse it as a means of revitalizing the community.
In addition, we will explore how to utilize the townspeople and tourists to gather and bustle in this place again as it was when we crowded as a gathering place once, taking advantage of the convenience of the location adjacent to the station and station hot springs "Kirara no yu" .
