STGK：Sakadoyama (Mt. Sakado) is known as the location chosen by Kanetsugu Naoe, a famous feudal lord of Echigo region, for his residential castle.
The “ryugon” inn is located at the foot of this iconic mountain, beloved as one of the charms of the region. The original “Ryugon” inn has been in business for 50 years, before it underwent the first phase of a renovation project and reopened in October 2019.
STGK was in charge of developing the spatial concept and landscape design for this project to renovate a long-established inn as a place where guests can feel and experience the unique and valuable winter culture developed in the region which sees the heaviest snowfall in Japan.
The concept of the landscape was to “welcome in the forest”, to remove as much of the elements as possible from the original Ryugon, which had been repeatedly extended and built-up over 50 years of its operation, and to create “room” for the nature of Sakadoyama in the background to come in to the garden, to prepare a “place” to welcome in the forest. Over the coming years, we will continue to be involved in shaping the scenery of this place while also managing the forest beyond.
In addition, we have created a picture book, “Invite the Forest”, which introduces the ecologically rich forest surrounding the hot spring resort and describes the future of the garden of “ryugon”.
