How the Coupons are used

The contracting restaurants must store used coupons until they are asked to hand them over to the Niseko Resort Tourist Association. After the coupons have been passed down and the coupon usage report and all the used coupons have been checked, we will transfer the coupon’s face value money to the designated bank account. *Please note, the bank account must be from the Niseko branch office of the Hokkaido Shinkin Bank! If you use any other bank, please contact us! We will provide more information at a later point via a how-to-use manual.

Other important point

  • The coupon can’t be used for dishes eaten inside the restaurant.
  • The coupon can’t be used for a bento costing less than 300 yen. It can also not be used for side dishes costing below 600 yen.
  • Used coupon’s face value can only be transferred during the designated time period! If the time period is missed, no money will be transferred to the respected restaurant!
  • If the coupon isn’t correctly filled out by the user (coupon number, address, name) or has no publisher stamp/publishing number, it is invalid.  
  • The publishing company will take no responsibility if the coupon is lost or stolen and will not distribute any replacements.

Deadline for the money transfer application

August 20, 2020 (coupons can be used until August 10, 2020)
