Nakasatsunai Feriendorf reopened on April 26 after refurbishment to make BBQs possible at all facilities
‘Feriendorf’, a glamping resort in the village of Nakasatsunai in eastern Hokkaido re-opened on April 26 after extensive refurbishment. Wooden BBQ decks that were limited to some cottages have now been installed at all the cottages on site.
Interiors have been refurbished on the theme of Tokachi’s nature, and a shop that stocks approximately 150 local specialty products has also been established.
Last spring, Capital Zenrin Co., Ltd. (Obihiro), which runs the facility (former Nakasatsunai Rural Holiday Village) became a subsidiary of the venture-backed company Sora (Obihiro), which is spending a total of 400 million yen on the refurbishment as the core of its Tokachi food and tourism promotion.
Forty-one cottages, a restaurant, and tents in which to enjoy ‘glamorous camping’ (glamping) are located within the grounds. As part of the refurbishment, wooden decks – previously available at just seven cottages – have been installed at all cottages on site, along with a roof to allow the facilities to be used during inclement weather, and a grill and the like to enable guests to enjoy barbeques more easily.
Cottage interiors have been renewed with carpets and wallpaper with ‘sky’ and ‘flower’ designs to enable guests to sense Tokachi’s nature, and bedrooms come complete with the same type of mattresses as those supplied to the British royal family. Cottage rental fees start at 14,000 yen per night for two guests.
The facility’s internet environment is fully maintained to allow for ‘workation’ stays in which guests can work while enjoying a vacation. A shop selling local specialty products such as sausages and ice-cream has also been established in the administrative building where the reception is also located.
“In future, we’re planning to introduce hands-on vegetable harvesting and the like, creating an environment in which families can enjoy a vacation while avoiding the three Cs, even during the coronavirus pandemic,” says Sora’s chief operating officer Hayashi Yuta.
