SATOYAMA JUJO| 里山十帖

Satoyama Jujo is a hot spring resort with a 150 year old wood building that creative director Toru Iwasa meticulously restored. High-tech utilities are hidden behind handcrafted wood, and chairs by legendary designers such as Finn Juhl and Arne Jacobsen enrich the lobby. Iwasa’s other passion is to gently educate his guests how to live a healthier and more balanced life. “That’s why I grow my own rice, promote local farm produce, and develop my own recipes,” he says. “Less cooked, less salty, but with more flavor.”
