Concept

Our concept is “Enjoy as it is” There is no store nearby our 50-year-old Japanese-style house. Winter is extremely cold. What we don’t have, we will create with wisdom. Children are pioneers. The whole house is a secret base for children. In front of the house is a playground. For adults, we are fully enjoying DIY, Bonfires, agriculture, etc. Since back then, we’ve been interacting with various people from all over the world. Each one of them was so special experience that provided us fresh amazement and new values. We will continue to live our lives feeling both the old and the new “as is”.
