Hotel and oven-baked pizza restaurant opens at Naganuma roadside rest area Maoi-no-Oka
On May 26, the ‘Fairfield by Marriott Hokkaido Naganuma Maoi no Oka Koen’ hotel opened on the municipality-owned former park-golf course land at the Maoi-no-Oka Koen roadside rest area in the town of Naganuma in the Sorachi region of central Hokkaido. The hotel hopes to offer a new style of travel that incorporates roadside rest areas.
The hotel, which hopes to attract guests with its sunset views, is a three-story building with 78 guestrooms of which two types are available: king-size bed rooms and twin rooms. Rooms for one or two will be available for between 13,000 and 14,000 yen per night. “The guestrooms are not luxurious, with only showers and no bathtubs, but the beds are comfortable and the rooms are well furnished. When used by two people, they are very good value for money,” says manager Takashima Takeshi.
The business is joint owned by Sekisui House, a major Japanese housing manufacturer, and Marriott International, a major U.S. hotel chain. A similar hotel also opened at a roadside rest area in the city of Eniwa on May 26, and another is scheduled to open at the roadside rest area in Minami Furano in the Kamikawa region on June 23.
Meanwhile, the Camel Coffee group, a designated roadside rest-area management company, opened the Pizzeria TONINO restaurant on the second floor of center house of the Naganuma rest-area, on May 26 – the same day of the hotel opening. The restaurant will offer authentic pizza-oven-baked pizzas topped with locally-grown ingredients. In conjunction with the opening of the hotel, it is expected to increase the roadside area’s ability to attract customers.
