Why dog lovers choose a vacation home in Karuizawa



The spacious land is
Ideal for large dogs and multiple pets

In the city, you don't often see people walking around with large dogs or many dogs. It seems that walking in a city with lots of cars and people is quite difficult. On that point, Karuizawa has quiet residential areas and forests just one street away. There are even dog lovers who move to Karuizawa because they want to keep multiple dogs.

In a cool climate even in midsummer,
Full of energy and overjoyed!

Dogs and cats wear fur all year round and can only sweat from the soles of their feet, so they don't like heat and humidity very well.The altitude of Resort Karuizawa is approximately 1000m, even in the height of summer.The average temperature here is 5 to 8 degrees lower than in Tokyo, and the mornings and evenings are cool enough to feel cool under the shade of the trees. It is also perfect for walking in parks, rivers, forests, and mountains.

Key points to create a space where your pet can live with peace of mind

Hanging out with my dog

​Relax space
“Doma Salon”

The dirt floor salon is ideal next to the spacious LDK where dogs and people can spend time together. We propose a space where you can spend your time comfortably with just the right distance without feeling too close to each other. The floor of the dirt floor salon has a tile finish. It's cool in the summer, and if you choose a tile with an uneven surface, it won't be slippery and comfortable. Another benefit is that it is easy to clean if it gets dirty.

It's comfortable because it has underfloor heating.
​I love showering too!

The dirt floor salon is warm even in winter with floor heating!

​Furthermore, it is safe to use water, so we recommend installing a shower sink, for example, as a place to wash your feet. A dirt floor salon with a "muddy space" that is laid out so that you can take a shower immediately after returning from a walk. We offer spaces that your pet will enjoy.

A place for your dog to relax

​Dog run

Dogs can relax on the deck that is directly connected to the living room and garden. We recommend a space with plenty of room for trimming.For dog runs where your dog can run around, make it easier to maintain the condition by laying down wild grass that is trample-resistant and has natural growth potential.

I like high places

The spacious floor plan of ``Kobo Shinshu House'' is a plan that cats will love, with plenty of space both vertically and horizontally. You can also use the cat tower and atrium to get to the second floor without using the stairs, making it perfect for cats who like to move vertically.Move freely depending on your mood!A comfortable home for cats who live at their own pace.

I feel safe when I have an enclosed area.

Cats also love small spaces. Sometimes I find myself in tight spaces where I wonder how I got there.    If you secure a well-enclosed place where you can relax and build storage furniture above, you can neatly store goods and food.

​ Examples of ways to enjoy life with pets

Entrance storage space

There are a variety of dog goods to use outside, such as harnesses, leashes, carrier bags, and toys.

Leave a large shoe closet next to the entrance. Because it's an extraordinary villa, you want to hide it neatly without cluttering it up.

As a pet-friendly flooring material,

We recommend unpainted natural wood such as chestnut or wild cherry that is compatible with underfloor heating. legs, hips and bodyEco-friendly natural materialsIt gives a feeling of tranquility and warmth.It is also good to partially use tiles, cork, or short-pile carpet.


as much as possiblesliding door

A medium-sized dog may be able to lean on the handle and open the door himself. We recommend using sliding doors to reduce this possibility. It can also be equipped with a lock for added security.


Deodorizing measures with wall materials

Walls and ceilings are painted with diatomaceous earth as standard. It exhibits the functions of humidity control, deodorization, and VOC adsorption/decomposition. In addition, wall materials such as ``Ecocarat'' come in a variety of designs and are effective as interior accents.

After playing outside with your dog, your dog's paws will inevitably get dirty.Therefore, install a dog paw washing area or shower sink next to the entrance or in the garden. We also recommend installing it in a dirt floor salon.

A catwalk has been set up in the atrium for cats who love heights and need to move up and down. It can also be used as an interior accent, creating an environment where your cat can roam freely.
