LOQUAT Villa SUGURO
Toi Tourism Revitalization Co., Ltd.
The increase in abandoned houses in rural areas is a social issue in Japan. Many valuable historic buildings are demolished because of depopulation. This Project revitalizes the economy and protects cultural heritage in a depopulated area of the Izu peninsula. The Project consists of two facilities: LOQUAT, an auberge in a traditional house with a restaurant serving local ingredients and guest rooms that retain the atmosphere of the traditional architecture; and Villa SUGURO, a group of detached houses, refurbished as guest houses. Our focus is preserving this threatened architecture, providing a new use that the locals can be proud of.
