There are numerous Tourism and Business associations and boards in Hakuba and HIBA has representation on many of these and are an active promoter of the Hakuba Tourism Commission with most HIBA members also members of the commission.
HIBA members participate in numerous community activities including educational, cultural and sporting events. This year members have volunteered at local schools, participated in local Matsuri Festivals and members have been key participants in bringing world class events to Hakuba such as the Qualifying Round of the Redbull Freeride Competition.
In previous year’s HIBA has collected donations for local earthquake victims and members raised funds for a local Japanese owned that was destroyed by fire and has since reopened.
We also assist Japanese owned businesses by proof reading translations of menus and providing additional menu information to help non-Japanese guests enjoy their dining experience.
