Okura Nikko Hotel Management Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Hotel Okura Co., Ltd., announced today that it will open the Hotel JAL City Toyama in 2022. The new property will be centrally located in front of Toyama station, which is served by the Hokuriku Shinkansen with direct connections to Nagano and Tokyo.
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. It additionally benefits from an abundant and inexpensive supply of power as well as the presence of a number of research facilities that are the result of collaboration between government, industry and academia. Over the years it has developed into one of the leading industrial cities on the Sea of Japan coast.
There are additionally 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. The city is accordingly enjoying an increase in the number of business and leisure travelers.
Marcel P. van Aelst, CEO, Okura Nikko Hotel Management Co., Ltd., commented, “We are pleased to be expanding the network of Okura Nikko Hotels across Japan with the opening of the new Hotel JAL City in Toyama, and are looking forward to welcoming domestic and overseas visitors to the new property.”
The company will contract with Nishimatsu Construction Co., Ltd. and its wholly owned subsidiary Nishimatsu Hotel Management Co., Ltd. for asset and project management services for the new property towards the end of June. Nishimatsu Construction decided to provide these services in the light of the perceived potential of Toyama city. The company sees a long-term future for the hotel, and plans to utilize its know-how from the planning and design stages. They 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.
