Tan Sri Francis has actively promoted tourism and business exchange in Japan through investments in the Tourism Industry. The Groupís hotel division, YTL Hotels, owns a mountain ski resort, Niseko Village in Hokkaido, Japan. With scenic views of Mt. Yotei, a landmark dormant volcano located to the south-east of the resort, Niseko Village occupies a total land area of approximately 617 hectares, comprising the 506-room Hilton Niseko Village, 200-room Green Leaf Hotel and two 18-hole golf courses, one of which was designed by Arnold Palmer.

The village also comprises a 155-hectare tranche of land featuring seven ski lifts and 15 ski trails, a 23-court tennis complex, the Niseko Village Ski Resort and ski school, several onsen (Japanese hot springs) and an equestrian center. Set at the foot of Mt. Niseko Anínupuri, the resort is the perfect base for skiers and snowboarders to access the mountainís powdery slopes, regarded as some of the finest alpine terrain in the world.

YTL Hotelsí portfolio includes its bespoke townhouses under the Kasara brand in Japan. Part of the Groupís new and unique collection of luxury hotels and resorts, the Kasara Niseko Village Townhouse currently offers a number of beautifully-formed ski-in, ski-out townhouses. The brand promises an experience of luxury, authenticity and timelessness to todayís discerning travellers.

Expanding their hospitality footprint in Asia through Marriott International, YTL Hotels signed Memorandums of Understanding with Marriott International for two hotels in Japan - an EDITION and a W Hotel in Niseko Village, Hokkaido.

The two hotels will further complement the luxury hotel experience in the fully integrated Niseko Village. YTL Hotelsí prominent presence in the powder mecca of Japan Ė Niseko Village in Hokkaido Ė is growing with the upcoming development of a Ritz-Carlton Reserve.

The new Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Niseko Village which is scheduled for completion in 2020, will be the first Ritz-Carlton hotel in Hokkaido and the first Ritz-Carlton Reserve not only in Japan but across North Asia.

To meet growing demands by international home buyers looking to invest in resort residences, the group has started developing a maiden residential block of apartments in Hinode Hill which is scheduled for completion by end of 2019, in time for the white season.

Speaking about YTL's projects in Japan, Tan Sri Francis Yeoh said, "I must stress that YTL is not here to buy, polish or sell. We are in this for the long-term and we aim to do it well or not at all. Ultimately, why are we doing this? Itís all about touching peopleís lives and giving them the very best experience."
