yuen bettei daita
A ryokan designed to value the history of the site and its significance to the local community. The designers wanted to create the look and feel of a renovated mansion-turned-ryokan as if the building had always been there. They wanted to build a space embodying the history of Daita by incorporating fixtures and materials acquired from a century-old mansion in the neighborhood. Historic fittings blend seamlessly with modern architectural techniques such as wooden ceilings, plastered walls, and stone floors, creating a sophisticated atmosphere with texture, contrast, and depth.
