Hotel Okura subsidiary to open hotel in Nagoya, Japan

Hotel Okura subsidiary Okura Nikko Hotel Management has announced its plan to open Hotel JAL City Nagoya Nishiki in Nagoya at Japan.

This is Okura Nikko Hotel’s first property in the city.

Last month, the company signed a contract with Enuwan to operate and manage the hotel, which is scheduled to open in 2019.

The new hotel will be developed at Fushimi, seven minutes away from Fushimi Station on the Nagoya Municipal Subway.

Fushimi, which was traditionally a tranquil area situated on the banks of the Hori River, has now evolved into a new commercial location at Nagoya.

The 14-story Hotel JAL City Nagoya Nishiki will have 216 guest rooms and offer a choice of queen or Hollywood twin beds.

Every room will carry an average of 26m2 of floor space with shower and bathtub facilities.

The firm also claimed that the new property will provide modern, convenient and highly functional accommodations to guests.

Hotel JAL City Nagoya Nishiki will be developed as a lifestyle hotel targeting travellers within the age group of late-20s and early-40s.

Hotel Okura opened its flagship property Hotel Okura Tokyo in 1962.

Its subsidiary Okura Nikko Hotel Management operates 74 properties, of which 49 are located in Japan.
