Set within a semi-tropical climate and breathtaking scenery of Japan’s southernmost prefecture of Okinawa, this boutique hotel is situated on the edge of cliff overlooking white-sand beach and clear turquoise water. The design of the hotel imagines a venue that imbues site’s natural surrounding into hospitality spaces, making the natural beauty part of an architectural element in and outside the hotel.
