Completion 2015 Kawachi-machi, Ibaraki Prefecture Renovation of wooden structure house
Located in the center of Kawachi-machi, Ibaraki Prefecture. “Nagasão-tei” is uniquely owned by the partnership of a private restaurant producer and the City of Kawachi-machi which owns this historical building and the property. We reinforced the structure and add a minor renovation to this old beautiful Japanese-style house which was donated to the town, and converted into the eatery, meeting and event space.
The restaurant producer (a partnership owner) is also well-known as a Japanese soba chef in this region and his “Soba” is just exquisitely delicious !! This Soba restaurant project absolutely became a splendid “Dynamo” to rejuvenate this rural small town.
