- The outlook of real estate in Hokkaido and SnowDog Village
- Emerging opportunities in Hokkaido during the summer
- Growth potential in Niseko
I appreciate how Jo is sharing his future outlook in this episode. I know a lot of institutions and professional investors have tried to participate in the Hokkaido real estate market. I feel bringing in mountain biking sports during the summer can be a game-changer for properties in Hokkaido. If Niseko becomes a summer sports destination, there is a lot of growth potential. If you’d like to chat with Jo, you can refer to his contact information in our show notes.
