designer shinichiro ogata of simplicity design studio developed a humble yet exclusive restaurant dedicated to the fastidious and intricate preparation of traditional japanese food.
‘yakumo saryo restaurant‘ perches on top of a hill, providing visitors with a peaceful refuge to enjoy a distinctive dining experience.
utilizing natural materials such as stone, wood and concrete, the restaurant instills the feeling of being inside a tradition japanese home. the choice of eating on tatami mats to a long dining table adds to the comfortable and familiar setting of the intimate space. plum trees and courtyards have been inter-weaved into the exterior fabric, pared with skylights that provide a constant stream of natural light into the interior.
‘it is a space to keep you away from the chaos and clamor of the city, a space where you can indulge, heal the mind and body, and discover the blend of both old and new.’ – shinichiro ogata
