Garyusansomore

Garyu Sanso is the mountain villa built about 100 years ago by a wealthy merchant at the time, and is designated as an important cultural property by the state for its architectural beauty. With the sumptuous designs decorating even the smallest parts of the building, its beauty prompted Japan’s leading architect Kisho Kurokawa to say, “I want to take possession of it even if I were to go into debt.” With the refreshing air enveloping the premises, when you sit down on the wooden-floored “engawa” veranda, you would be enfolded by a sense of genial relief.
