Our Story

MnK (Midori no Ki)  was established in 2010 for the purpose of providing a hospitality solution to the unique resort-style accommodation being developed by partners. This type of development was new to the area at the time, and since then MnK has evolved its service model and are now the market leaders in managing estate-style, community-orientated resorts.

A note from our CEO & Director

Resilient and team-oriented people are the key to the company’s ongoing success. Their passion, combined with a deep sense of community, is the cornerstone of the MnK Niseko culture, and an integral part of future service delivery and brand strategy.

Eddie Guillemette

After a 20-year career in investment banking, Eddie followed his heart to the healthy, outdoor lifestyle that Niseko had to offer. Outside of the office, Eddie enjoys exploring Hokkaido and spending time in nature with his three daughters.

A Fresh Look

Midori no Ki underwent a brand refresh in 2014-15 looking to simplify and solidify our identity under the abbreviated word-mark of MnK. Midori no Ki means "The green tree" in Japanese, and our new identity while born out of the natural surrounds is also inspired by Japanese Hanko stamps. Hanko stamps are unique identifiers used throughout Japan by companies and individuals as a mark of authenticity, in much the same way as a personal signature.

MnK remain committed to our brand values of being down-to-earth, responsive, honest and sincere. Energetic and highly talented people are the key to our ongoing success. The team's passion, combined with a deep sense of community, is the cornerstone of the MnK culture, and an integral part of future service delivery.
