The house built on new residential area in south of Okinawa main island.
The owner desired to give hospitality to business customers and exchange students for their kids.
Once in past Okinawa, they welcome their guests in a yard or courtyard. They used to entertain their guests (“Omotenashi”) in the space that is deeply related to nature. From flower bowl at the end of long approach connecting to stone garden of Japanese-style room then end up to living room, it is unified with outside space and invites guests as if they are strolling.
They plant paulownia, peach tree, cherry tree, and plum tree that are from their daughter’s name to welcome their guests warmly just like Okinawan way.
Bidding is scheduled in August
