A fresh influx of full time professional staff and interest from Japan-based buyers has arrived in Niseko thanks to new hospitality developments such as the Park Hyatt in Hanazono and the Ritz Carlton Residence in Higashiyama. With many first/second homebuyers and investors looking for value outside of Hirafu, Takeo Drive has been developed to cater to those looking for value, inspiration and appreciation.
Takeo Drive is for those looking to build in a community - either to live, for regular holidays, or for long term/seasonal rentals. The site is highly private and suits the discerning buyer who has a love of nature.
Nestled in the farmland between Mt. Yotei and Takeo Arishima Memorial Museum, the primary 9,576 sqm site enjoys dual aspect views to Mt. Yotei and Mt. Annupuri. An additional 2,434sqm secondary site offers the potential for a second phase of development in the future.
The primary site has been granted development approval for up to 9 properties that would enjoy views of both Mt. Yotei and Mt. Annupuri. A tenth plot adjacent to the road, would remain as green space and become a shared garden for the subsequent homes.
The road was completed in November 2020. The site has been subdivided with 9 unique plots now available to purchase.
Please get in touch if you would like to learn more and be a part of this exciting new development project in Niseko.
Takeo Drive is located in the Arishima neighborhood of Niseko, post code 048-1531.
This area is named after Takeo Arishima, a classic Japanese writer and philanthropist who lived 100 years ago. A museum in his honor is located 2 minutes away by car, and features a quaint exhibit and cafe. The museum also has beautifully manicured grounds, which is great for picnics and playtime with the kids.
Takeo Drive is surrounded by untouched forest, meaning (aside from your neighbors) you have full privacy. Beyond the forest is local farms, which produce some of Japan's best quality fruits and vegetables. Roadside stands can be found in the summer, offering delicious produce for you to take home. Mt Niseko Annupuri (ski hill) and Mt Yotei can be seen from almost all plots from the second floor.
Arishima is quickly becoming the place for local artisans to open their shops and businesses - currently there are some fantastic places to enjoy Hokkaido's bounty including Takano's Coffee just next door, Amakaraya Organic Shop and Seed Bagel Company and Birch Tree Cafe.
Nearby landmarks are a only short drive away, making Takeo Drive perfectly balanced between tranquility and convenience:

The Shibui House is a stunning reconstructed Japanese farmhouse (kominka), transformed into a modern home fit for discerning residents with an appreciation for traditional Japanese craftsmanship. In Japanese, 'Shibui' translates to the idea of something 'aged with grace', such as the ancient hardwood timber used in the house's construction, sourced from the same mountainous area as Shirakawa-go, a Unesco World Heritage site in Gifu. In architectural terms, Shibui means 'aligned with nature and without need for adornment. Having beauty in itself.'
Conceived by eco developer Heritage Homes, The Shibui House aims to bring sophisticated Japanese elegance to the incomparable wild beauty of Niseko, Hokkaido. Using original hardwood from Western Japan's iconic kominkas, The Shibui House is a feat of architecture, interior design and sustainability. Heritage Homes prides itself on industry-leading sustainable construction practices and materials, including natural paints and wood preserves. Eco-friendly innovation is prioritised to maintain and warm your property in the harsh winters, such as 200+mm eco fibre insulation, triple glazed windows, natural gas and heat exchanges and renewable energy sources like geothermal and solar. The result is a stunning home that enriches the soul and treads lightly on the earth.
All available plots at Takeo Drive are eligible to be packaged with a Shibui House.
