With a nod to the Alps, Akatsuki Chalet is European in styling and finish, implemented with the exceptional quality of Japanese tradesmen.
Natural materials are featured throughout, including wide plank solid oak floors imported from Belgium, and stone walls. The rougher recycled timber surfaces are contrasted with contemporary accents of concrete and glass, and sumptuous furnishings.
Akatsuki has 5 fully ensuited bedrooms, including a bunk room with entertainment area where the kids can truly be kids. The living room is on the top floor under a vaulted ceiling which frames the Mt. Yotei views, and oversized balcony provides maximum enjoyment for BBQ in the summer months. A generous onsen inspired spa bath large enough for a family is the place to unwind sore muscles at the end of a long day on the mountain. There is a garage with space for gear, convenient dry room, two owner storages, and a heated carpark in front.
Located on the Hirafu Middle Village bluff, the site was selected with the stunning views in mind. Facing east, the chalet catches the sun rising over Mt. Yotei, and indeed “Akatsuki” means “dawn” in Japanese. There is immediate access to the area’s popular restaurants and bars. The village shuttle bus stops just a few meters walk away, giving more freedom of movement for larger groups.
The land extends all the way down to the road down below, meaning the current views are guaranteed. The land drops far enough that a person could build a new 2-3 story building at road level below, and not interfere with the views at Akatsuki. Perhaps an annex, for a group who would like more bedrooms.
