Futaba Aoi

  • The concept of this room began 22 years ago when I visited Kyoto's Nakamura Sotoji Komuten, a master sukiya architect.While listening to the story of the master who asked, he abandoned that "it is a world that is not as good as I am now."I am determined to learn everything and grow.I waited for the time to come.
    In the meantime, my dreams gradually expanded, and after 20 years, I asked the master again in September 2019.With the promise of design and construction, construction started in October 2021, two years later.
    Until the start of construction, they listened to various hopes, and there were dozens of exchanges with them, and even at the stage of construction, new proposals were proposed one after another from the construction shop. rice field.
     The owner wants to prepare equipment suitable for such a wonderful space, so he is enthusiastic about selecting it, and orders high-grade items that are not found in Japanese hotels and inns, and arranges them while checking the feel, comfort, and design. I am.

    The entrance, front room, Japanese-style room, Western-style room, washroom, Ginsen bathroom, toilet, closet, and "Futaba Aoi" are suites that give the atmosphere of a single house.

  • Japanese-style room(Zashiki)

    The master craftsman's work at Sukiya has been handed down with the three pillars of "materials," "tools," and "cleaning."We have always prepared the best materials that have been carefully examined and have proposed the most suitable materials to the owner.

  • Western-style Room

    This shoji is the long-cherished wish of the owner, Yoshimura shoji.Architect Junzo Yoshimura has designed a shoji with a wide space between the stiles, finely tuned the stiles and frames, and unified the found dimensions of the kumiko and stile dimensions. With a design shoji screen, it shines a gentle light into the Western-style room.
