The fairyland with the warmth that has built by an architect
There is "Nukumori no Mori" at the point that passed through the residential area which is 10 minutes by car from Hamamatsu-nishi interchange of Tomei highway. The beginning of Nukumorinomori was that an architect Shigeyoshi Sasaki who pursues his original style built his designing office and furniture workshop. Then he opened a goods store that proposes a total coordinate with his architecture. Gradually many people started to visit by word of mouth, and it has grown for about 20 years to be the style like now which has a restaurant, café, goods store and more.
You will definitely be moved by the view of the sophisticated world where you can see the preferences of the architect everywhere such as the European building which appears when you climb up the narrow slope surrounded by the forest, trees that grow thickly and swinging flowers snuggle against the building, exteriors and interiors.
There are café and restaurant in the forest and you can relax and enjoy there. You can buy cute plants or nice goods that match well to the atmosphere of the woods as your memory or souvenirs. Why don't you go on a short trip to this fairyland that surrounded by the small woods and makes you think of Moomin Valley or Ghibli world?
