Ten years ago, we began to study the Chinese market and actively participated in the development. At present, we have five clubs in China and plan to open another three clubs in China this year. In the coming ten years, we will develop about 100 projects in China. Our discussion on cooperation with DDI has lasted for more than one year and we firmly believe that Qingpu GOKURAKUYU will be the new benchmark for hot springs in Shanghai. On basis of the original concepts, we will highlight the creation of atmosphere for family gathering and youth party. The area of Qingpu GOKURAKUYU covers about 7,000 square meters, including characteristic Japanese hot spring basin bath, lopolith bath, steam room, as well as outdoor family hot spring bathing experience.”
