Perched on a bluff overlooking the Shiribetsu River, Hiyoku (飛翼) was designed to welcome in the expansive vistas of Mt. Yotei, the river, and the neighboring farm. This is the perfect place for families or groups who want a private location to relax and reconnect. There is a very generous living, dining and kitchen area for the whole family to comfortably hang out. The kitchen is thoughtfully laid out for cooking up hearty feasts and the wood burning fireplace surrounded by furniture with 100 year old leather cushion covers add welcoming warmth and charm.
Hiyoku sleeps 10. In the master bedroom, guests can drop their laundry from the ensuite bathroom directly into the laundry room below. The bunk room is great for kids or adults, with 4 "pods" each having private space with their own reading light, window and small cabinet. The tatami room gives the maximum flexibility, comfortably sleeping up to 2 adults or 3 children. And with 3 massive, sliding doors, the media room can be completely closed off to become a fourth bedroom.
At its heart Hiyoku is a skier's pad, and the attention to detail in the gear room shows that elevated position. The chunky larch stools and bench were milled from a massive larch felled on site, bespoke pieces that mean to give thanks to the site itself.
