Yahataya Annex "Kikyotei"
The spa hotel known as Yahataya in Habata, Fukushima Prefecture decided to expand the annex (restaurant and bathing facilities) as a part of their marketing strategy, in the opportunity of management transition from the current Chairman to the President. Yamashita PMC was appointed as CM to provide professional services, when the project faced a significant gap between the designer’s proposal and the available budget. We formed a team of experienced members in the field of hotel renovation and development projects, while closely coordinating with client and various players including traditional building constructors, landscapers and others. We supported the client to facilitate the investment decision, and successfully completed this “Kikyotei” featuring outdoor baths that are nicely blended in the rustic scenery of the area. As an annex facility of the main building of Yahataya, “Kikyotei” provides guests with an extraordinary, soothing experience in the nature and local culture of the countryside.

Recently in the hotel industry, it has become a standard scheme to separate ownership, management and operation and to distribute profits according to the risk ratio, and Japan is no exception. Regardless of whether the business owner is in the position of ownership, management or operation, or, in any phase of the business, professional consulting services - that always verify risks and returns from both management and architectural aspects - are essential. Recently, the grade of the new hotel is in the upward tendency. In general, the higher the hotel grade is, the more complicated the facility specification and complexity get, due to higher quality and quantity of services expected. As a result, the number of the players involved in the project increases such as architects, builders, designers and other consultants, while the business owners are forced to respond to more issues and challenges.
