Say Goodbye To Hirafu's Powerlines

Niseko's powerlines are going underground

Big Infrastructure Improvements In Niseko For G20 Meeting

The talk of all Niseko right now is the big Hokkaido government project underway to put the powerlines underground in the main street of Hirafu. The projects scope stretches from Sunsports sports field all the way to intersection at Izumikyo opposite the new 7/11. The removal of the powerlines in Hirafu's main street has been a topic of conversation for many years now and is a great step forward for the region. As you can see from the gallery work is already well underway.

This project is slated to be complete well before the coming winter and in time for the G20 Tourism ministers meeting to be held here October 25-26, for more info on the G20 meeting in Niseko head over here.
