Karuizawa first ever hotel-condo to commence sales in June 2024

In late April, Tokyu Real Estate, Sankei Building, and Mitsubishi Jisho Residence announced the commencement of sales for the Glamday Style Hotel & Resort Kyu-Karuizawa development. 

A first for the Karuizawa area, this project will introduce the concept of hotel condominiums tailored for individual, strata-title ownership.

Floor plans are set to range from between 51.84 to 118.17 square meters, all in a 1-bedroom layout configuration.   The building will house 65 units in total. 

According to the press release, owners will be able to enjoy the best of both worlds: the comfort of a vacation home combined with access to premium hotel services.

The option to rent out units as hotel rooms when not in use is featured as a solution to manage maintenance costs and homeowners' association costs. 

The building footprint will span roughly 4,149 square meters, with three above-ground floors and one basement level, with a total floor area of approximately 7,850 square meters.

In addition to these amenities, residents and guests can unwind in the communal hot spring bath, complete with a sauna—an exclusive opportunity to indulge in the rejuvenating benefits of Karuizawa's renowned hot springs, sourced from Kita-Karuizawa and Ohsu Onsen.
