  ‘Kaze-no-terrace KUKUNA’ at the Lake Kawaguchi, Yamanashi started its 2nd stage renewal project in February, 2010 and completed it on July 17, 2010.

Total floor 7,564㎡ and 9-story building of ‘Kaze-no-terrace KUKUNA’ is stood on the lakeside of Lake Kawaguchi, where is about 10 minutes drive from the Kawaguchi-ko Inter Change on the Chuo Highway.

The lakeside hotel was originally a typical Japanese inn called ‘Kawaguchi-ko Daiichi Hotel’. The original inn had stopped its business in November 2005 and started the 1st stage total renovation including new annex house with 14 guest rooms. The typical old style Japanese inn was completely changed and reopened as a Western style resort hotel and renamed as ‘Kaze-no-terrace KUKUNA’ in November, 2006.

Actually, 45 guest rooms in the ‘Chuo-kan’ and 6 rooms in the ‘Plaza’ were slightly changed on the 1st stage renewal project. This time, all interior decoration were completely removed from these rooms and furnished with new concept interior decoration. And also, public space ‘Hikari-no-terrace’ and ‘Aesthetic Salon Liko’ are newly added. The investment cost for the 1st stage renewal was 1,800 million yen, and 500 million for the 2nd stage.

The main target of the 2nd stage renewal was how to remodel typical Japanese style 12 tatami-mat rooms to attractive and profitable rooms. New design concept ‘fusion of the easiness in Japanese room and conformity of the resort style’ was arrived as an answer after long consideration. Unique Japanese rooms named ‘Zashitsu’ and ‘Zayoushitsu’ are created under the new design concept.
