About multilingual correspondence

Niseko Town, all pages are available in English, Chinese (simplified and traditional), and Korean using the service of "WOVN.io" (provided by Minimal Technologies Inc.).
With the introduction of this service, it became easier for foreign town residents and tourists to disseminate the information of the town, and it became possible to search on overseas sites (including China) that could not be handled by Google Translate.
