This is a new cottage built in 2022.
Entering the chic house with black exterior walls, the stone hallway leading to the high ceiling living room will make you forget your everyday life.

The outdoor bath is surrounded by trees, and in winter you can enjoy a relaxing snow view bath.
The outlet of the bath is decorated with "Datekanmuriishi,” a specialty of southern Miyagi Prefecture that has been loved by world-famous artists.

On the spacious wooden deck, you can enjoy a forest bath while leaning back in a zero-gravity chair.
Squirrels and small birds can be seen in the morning, and at night you may even catch a glimpse of flying monkeys soaring through the illuminated forest.

Enjoy private theater in the living room and bedroom with a 100-inch projector screen.
Displays and desks are also available for your workspace.
