Okura Nikko Hotel Management has announced that it will launch Hotel JAL City Toyama in 2022.
The new property will be located in front of Toyama station, which is served by the Hokuriku Shinkansen with direct connections to Nagano and Tokyo.
Hotel JAL City Toyama will offer accommodation comprising some 250 guest rooms as well as all-day dining facilities, a bar and a library. The average guest room area will be 25m2, with twin-bed rooms ranging from 26 to 31m2 in size and double-bed rooms of 21m2.
Based on Hotel JAL City’s brand concept “Smart Simplicity”, the new hotel will place a range of digital devices at guests’ disposal, allowing them to enjoy a smart, simple and meaningful stay.
The company will contract with Nishimatsu Construction, and its wholly owned subsidiary Nishimatsu Hotel Management for asset and project management services for the new property towards the end of June.
Nishimatsu Construction will consign day-today operation of the property to Okura Nikko Hotel Management in view of its wide network of properties in Japan and overseas.
Situated in a region that includes abundant supplies of clean water suitable for industrial use, Toyama is home to companies manufacturing precision industrial products, microfabrics and high-performance robots.
There are several tourist attractions in the vicinity including the picturesque Toyama Bay. The Hokuriku Shinkansen, which was extended to the city of Kanazawa in 2015, has significantly improved access to Toyama from both the Kansai and Kanto areas.
