In Ohinata, Sakuho-town, Nagano-pref.
We built a small cottage at a mountain side of the natural woodland which separated for a while from the colony.
The time flows graceful here, while the interval of farm labor or works in the mountain.
It is a special time to have Coffee or Beer while looking at Mt. Morai on the other side.
You can spend time, being surrounded by nature...
reading books slowly, taking a walk the mountain, listening songs of birds while lie on a hammock in the forest.

Daigo's home was the highlight of our trip to Nagano. It is exactly as shown as in the photos. Daigo and his wife (Haruka) were always available if we had questions. There is a sink to wash your face and brush your teeth. If you need a full shower/bath we recommend the Ri Ex hot spring which is about 30 minutes from Daigo's home. We also recommend Cafe Maru (20 minutes) for a very nice lunch. We look forward to visiting Daigo's other home for our trip to Nagano next year.

Wir hatten das Glück, sowohl in Daigos Haus, als auch in der kleinen Hütte in den Bergen jeweils 3 Tage zu verbringen und es war einfach nur wunderbar. Wenn man die Zeit hat, ist dies der perfekte Ort, um einen Japan-Urlaub ausklingen zu lassen! Noch dazu ist Daigo ein wunderbarer Host, der einen nicht nur mit allem nötigen versorgt, einen nicht nur zu tollen Spots rund um die Unterkunft fährt, sondern mit dem man sich auch wirklich gut unterhalten kann, sodass es fast so wirkt, als wäre man bei einem Freund zu besuch! Die Location bietet Ruhe zum entspannen, einen schönen Einblick, in japanisches Leben vernab von touristischen Hochburgen und großstädtischer Hatz. Noch dazu sind beide Unterkünfte von Daigo mit allen nötigen Dingen ausgestattet und mit Liebe restauriert und eingerichtet. Alles in Allem war das mit Abstand mein bester Aufenthalt bei Airbnb und ich wüsste nicht, wie es besser hätte sein können. Danke Daigo!

This cabin is a perfect retreat from Tokyo - tucked away in nature and thoughtfully decorated with everything you could need for a relaxing break. Daigo and Keisuke were perfect hosts, too. If you're looking for somewhere to read, drink freshly ground coffee, and take long walks, then look no further.

男3人で宿泊しました。 焚き火をする場所があり、薪も500円で販売していますので、調達が楽でした。 3人だったので、ソファベッド、ハンモック、布団でそれぞれ寝ました。 8月の暑い日に宿泊したのですが、夜は室内でも20度くらいになりますので、涼しく過ごせました。 昼間は暑いです! 初オフグリッド体験でしたが快適に過ごせました。 ありがとうございました。

今は ” Sanson Terrace (山村テラス) “という屋号で、自分たちが創りたい空間を、自分たちの手で少しずつ形にしています。プロの大工ではありませんので時間はとてもかかりますが、その土地に根ざした味わい深い個性溢れる空間を、少しずつ増やしていきたいと思っています。


Hello, I’m Daigo.
I live in a small village surrounded by mountains with my wife. The village name is Sakuho town in Nagano.
My life changed a lot by experiences of building a cottage with my friends, and of being big influenced from the summer-cottage culture in Finland.

My job and lifework is creating new countryside lifestyle and culture for our generation through building spaces by ourselves hands. I’m not professional carpenter, so it takes long time to build, but I would like to make spaces which is unique, individuality, warmly, and rooted in the lands.
At this moment, I have finished to build two spaces, one is a small cottage at a mountain side, and other one is renovated old small wooden house in the village. I would like to build more spaces little by little…

You must understand that food cultures in this area are really high when you stay here. Vegetables, fruits, fishes from mountain rivers, hams and sausages, breads, Japanese sake, cafes, restaurants… Many fascinating people build food cultures rooted in this area.
There are no famous sightseeing spots, but there are excellent lives.
I am so happy you enjoy our life cultures and spend relaxing time!
