This is a traditional-style Japanese house and gardens located 2.5 kilometres from Atami Station and 1.8 kilometres from Atami Sun Beach.
The 2,500 sqm block of freehold land is located in an elevated hillside position approximately 98 meters above sea level, and 450 meters down the street from Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Atami hot spring hotel.
The traditional Japanese-style home overlooks a landscaped garden and has views over the town and ocean below. The house has five rooms and a kitchen and dining room. The age of the house is unknown.
Special Tax on Holiday Homes:
Atami City charges a special tax on the owners of holiday homes and resort apartments within the city. The tax is only charged on properties where the owner has not registered the property as their primary address.
The annual tax is 650 Yen x the building size in square meters. A 398 sqm holiday house would therefore have an annual special tax bill of 258,700 Yen, in addition to the standard fixed asset taxes payable each year by property owners.
Atami City, sister city to Italy’s Sanremo, is a hilly beachside town famous for its natural hot springs. It is 100 km south-west of Tokyo, and can be easily accessed by the Shinkansen bullet train in just 37 ~ 49 minutes.
From the early Meiji era, wealthy financiers and government officials often visited Atami for health retreats and for holding important meetings. With the opening of the Tokaido Main Line in the 1870s, the town saw an influx of Tokyo-ites seeking hot spring baths and relaxing holidays.
In 1920, the city had a population of 13,843 people (2,723 households). The population peaked at around 50,000 residents in the 1960s and 1970s. In 2015 the population was 38,120 people (21,233 households).
In 1950, the Japanese government designated Atami as an international sightseeing and cultural hot spring city, along with Kyoto, Beppu, Nara, Karuizawa and others.
High-speed Shinkansen train services started between Tokyo and Atami Station in 1964.
In the 1970s ~ 1980s, the city received around 4 ~ 5 million tourists annually. The number peaked at around 8 ~ 9 million tourists per year in the 1990s.
In 2013 there were 6 million tourists, up 8% from 2012. Half of the tourists stayed in hotels. Around 20,000 foreign tourists stay in Atami hotels each year.
The busiest month for tourism is August with over 1 million visitors. There is not a large difference in the monthly tourist numbers in the summer and winter months, as winters are relatively mild and hot springs are very popular in colder months.
The City holds 14 fireworks festivals each year in April, May, July, August, September and December.
