TOKYO -- Japanese trading house Sojitz has moved to construct its first luxury resort hotel in a historical landmark area near Nagasaki, informed sources told Nikkei, in a bid to capture the growing traffic of tourists the location has drawn.

Sojitz aims to open the hotel on the largest of the Goto Islands within the next three years. The project is expected to cost a few billion yen (1 billion yen equals $9.2 million).
