How this project is managed

The Gorgeous Makeover & Joshikai Package Outing Project was created as a new way to experience Sapporo’s nightlife, and is centrally managed by the Gorgeous Makeover & Joshikai Package Outing Project Development Committee.

This committee is an organization created in collaboration between Hokkaido University Graduate School of International Media, Communication, and Tourism Studies (Professor Kitamura’s Team), and Amazing Ankh Co., Ltd., a beauty salon (Komina Obara, Representative Director). It is responsible for managing this project.

This project was launched in April of 2018, and is currently operating with the Committee at the helm, in collaboration with three prominent restaurants in Sapporo (Maruyama Dan, SHIRO, Bistro Maruyama Haru), as well as Premium Hokkaido Co., Ltd. for reservation management, and Shoubunsha Inc. for web design, among others.

Moving forward, we hope to increase the number of participating beauty salons and restaurants, and contribute to the further development of Sapporo’s vibrant night life. We appreciate your support in our endeavor.
