WSJ: A ski home in Japan
This four-story home sits in a popular ski area on Japan’s northern Hokkaido island and overlooks Mount Yotei. Canadian owner Clarke Yagihara, an investment banker who has lived in Tokyo for more than a decade, purchased the 3,660-square-foot empty plot of land in 2008. Mr Yagihara hired a local architect to design the house, which he uses as a vacation home, and construction was completed in March 2011. The combined cost of the land and the home was $2.2 million. The home is a 10-minute walk to restaurants, shops and grocery stores. A free shuttle bus, which stops in front of the house, runs to two ski resorts: Grand Hirafu and Hanazono.
