An Entertainer’s Paradise
This Minakami home was completed in 2019 and is located just 2 hours drive from central Tokyo. By bullet train, it is 70 minutes to Jomo Kogen Station, followed by a 12 minute drive to the house. It is also a 5 minute drive from the local train station, Kamimoku.
The idyllic hillside location is sparsely populated by a friendly, mainly foreign community. The house is perfectly positioned facing South West and enjoys a massive amount of winter sun and views across the neighboring valley all year round.
There are many onsen nearby, and the location is great for winter sports with 9 ski resorts within a 20 minute drive and many more further afield. Summer hiking, canoeing, white-water rafting, and much more are also frequent activities amongst the locals and visitors alike.
The driveway is private, has ample parking, and comes with a Suzuki 4×4 ready to go with winter tires and chains. Tack on your very own mature Sakura tree on this modest 470m2 plot of land, and you’ve got a guaranteed great time.
Custom built to a very high European standard with accommodation spread over a spacious two and a half floors, the house has a very open plan feel to it and is a true entertainer.
