The Original Toru Iwasa

Cedar wood and tatami grass flooring give guests a further glimpse into the region’s architectural heritage, while the progressive renovation by Toru Iwasa and Kei Kaihoh—in cooperation with Musashino Art University’s interior design laboratory—won the Singapore Good Design Award in 2015, among other awards. 

Architecture

A house of heritage

While the modern extension sees a hot spring spa, the hotel’s main building is 150 years old and was fashioned from hard Zelkova wood and pine in order to withstand the region’s intensely snowy winters. Japanese lacquer was also used to protect the building.

Interior Design

Ancient updated

Interiors call to mind old-fashioned Japanese homes and modern Western spaces. In the reception, wooden beams surround an artwork by Japanese sculptor Ryuichi Ohira, which was sculpted from a huge camphor tree trunk and features Daikokuten, a fabled god of prosperity.

Furniture by the likes of Arne Jacobsen, Isamu Noguchi, and Charles & Ray Eames, range from traditional Japanese floor cushions to modern pieces that evoke the 1960s. Dark cedar floors complement cream-colored walls that play host to works of distinctively Japanese art by Shun Kawakami.
