UNIQUE AND UNFORGETTABLE WINTER RETREAT!

It’s Located High Up In One Of Japan’s Mountain Ranges

The Japanese are known for their technological inventions and ingenuity when it comes to just about anything. This mountain cabin located high up in the mountain ranges of Hokkaido in Northern Japan is an example of that.

Built with inspiration from the country’s natural landscapes, the cabin, dubbed the “Yezo,” has a very unique structure that is centered on a central chimney made of concrete. The cabin has glue-laminated timber beams arranged in a shell-like structure as roofing. The main loft of the cabin can be accessed using a spiral staircase on the side of the structure. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide gorgeous views of the surroundings as guests relax in the sitting or sleeping area. Another staircase leads up to a cozy observation deck.

What’s more, the chimney is flanked by a spiral staircase leading up to an observation deck that overlooks the local landscape while the front of the building is capped off with a patio with a sunken hot tub, and a modern take on traditional Japanese temple stairs.
