AYA Niseko Development Update


AYA Niseko onsen drilling has commenced, and construction is ahead of schedule with a third of the foundation pilings already complete.

In Niseko natural hot spring water comes bubbling to the surface in mountainous areas, becoming the natural choice for onsen facilities. In the early days of settlement and development in the Niseko area locations such as Yuki Chichibu Onsen, Goshiki Onsen, Niimi Onsen, and Yamada Onsen were some of the locations where Onsen facilities were build because the hot spring water flows from Niseko’s volcanic depths up to the surface naturally and is easily piped in to baths.

As accommodation increased in the area, it became necessary to ‘tap in’ to Niseko’s subterranean onsen by drilling onsen wells in areas where it doesn’t naturally flow to the surface. How deep do these drilling rigs go? According to the Geological Survey of Hokkaido, some of these wells reach an impressive depth of over 1000m – well below sea level.

If you’re in Niseko check out the AYA development site – the drilling rig is an impressive sight.
