The small seaside town of Onomichi, known from Ozu’s Tokyo Story (東京物語, Tōkyō Monogatari), with both scenic views and filmic vibes, is home to the recently opened and to say the least – incredible – LOG hotel. Residing on the mountain side of Mount Senkoji, in an old residential avant-garde building from the 60’s, with a fantastic view over the town and port this color-perfect place has a calming and mesmerising aoura.
The building’s remodeling and conversion into a hotel, along with a café/bar as well as a gallery and shop, is a collaboration between Indian architect Bijoy Jain of Studio Mumbai and Discover Link Setouchi. It is created with a combination of indian and Japanese crafts and design, and aimed to capture both light and view gracefully.
Japanese washi (handmade paper), covering every inch of the guestrooms, and creatie ways of using urushi (japanese laquer) on tables and bars exits side by side with original furniture handmade in India.
The dining room serves breakfast created by Ai Hosokawa, who’s sense of flavor and detail leaves nothing to chance.
