Naka Karuizawa | Toriibara
Toriibara is the largest commercial center in Karuizawa, and is home to the Tsuruya Karuizawa store, which has become a tourist attraction these days. There are home centers, drugstores, electronics stores, and convenience stores, all of which support the daily lives of the town residents. In recent years, a Mercedes-Benz dealership opened at the corner of Toriibara Intersection on Route 18, attracting attention that a foreign car dealership finally came to Karuizawa.
The property is under construction, in a location 500 meters west of the Toribara intersection on the Route 18 bypass. It is scheduled for completion in July 2022. Toriibara was originally a farming village, and here, too, the fields to the south and the mountains of the Hotchi area beyond form a very Shinshu-like landscape.
The house is designed and being built using the “air-pass” construction method, which allows the building to breathe by allowing “air” to “pass” between the exterior and interior walls. This structure allows moisture to escape and keeps the house warm in winter and cool in summer. There is a breathing window in the attic, which can be manually opened and closed. Please check it out for yourself when you are ready to view the house. In Karuizawa, which is known for its high humidity, moisture control is important to ensure the longevity of the house. While many house owners use a number of dehumidifiers in operation to prevent moisture, a house with the air-path construction method is a smart way to achieve this purpose.
The house's floor plan features a bright, south-facing space that leads from the free space on the second floor to a balcony with a beautiful “Shinshu” view. The time spent relaxing in this space with a reading chair or other seating will be a special experience for you.
We are open for tours even during construction. Looking forward to hearing from interested buyer customers.
