from the editor

With summer still lingering, we wanted to help you find your own special retreat, away from the crowds to sit back and enjoy a few extra precious days off before things turn back to normal. The beautifully restored kura storehouse Marugayatsu in Chiba Prefecture is one of my own personal favourites. Architect Yoshifumi Nakamura has helped turn this rural hideaway into a delightful mixture of traditional Japanese architecture and Scandinavian sensibility. The local farm-to-table cooking adds a delicious note to the overall experience. There is also the spacious Kiraku Obi former Samurai home in Miyazaki, combining the charms of the small town of Obi with the tastefully renovated bukeyashiki-style house. For the epicurious, we invite you on a culinary journey of wine and mutton in Hokkaido as we tag along with foodie Yukiko Hirano…

secret getaways

Japan is not just about high-end ryokan inns and resort hotels–there are a large number of renowned lodgings that are genuinely unique. Lately, standalone accommodation that allows you to experience the feeling of a holiday home, and accommodation that combines the functions of both transport and lodging, such as trains, buses and passenger boats, have been emerging as a trend. There are as many pleasures awaiting you as there are places to stay. Umisora Annex is a modern cottage that stands in the middle of a mandarin orchard overlooking the Seto Inland Sea and is limited to one group of guests per stay. Blissful moments free from the everyday hustle and bustle pervade this accommodation. *At least one guest must be able to speak Japanese to use this facility. A panoramic sea view….
