Cottages

This cottage is built along Kyudo Street in Karuizawa.
The owner being an Urasenke school hado/sado (Japanese tea ceremony) instructor, the traditional tatami room on the first floor is designed to double as a chashitsu (tea room), so that the family and guests can enjoy tea at their vacation home as well.

To give it a more casual feeling of a tea room in a mountain cottage, instead of a formal tokonoma (traditional Japanese alcove where scrolls and flower arrangements are displayed), we opted for an oribedoko (part of a wall furnished with a narrow wood panel below the ceiling for hanging scrolls), and the mizuya (small kitchen area adjacent to a tea room, used to prepare for tea ceremonies) was arranged to be utilized for other daily activities.
