●Yoshino Cedar House is a collaboration between Tokyo-based architect Go Hasegawa, Airbnb and the community of Yoshino. The house is built from sustainable cedar forests located in mountains nearby, and was built by local master carpenters and craftsmen.

We offer two rooms upstairs– Sunrise for 2 people (max.3) and Sunset for 2 people (max.4). The space downstairs is where you can meet local people, to get information or to enjoy local cuisine together, just like how we relax in Yoshino.

The space
●Yoshino Cedar House is located on the bank of the Yoshino River, in a beautiful valley and flowing river. It used to be the site of an old timber-inspection office - logs would be floated downstream, stop in front of the building to be checked, before making their way to Osaka.
In the area, there are about 40 wood mills and other wood related factories that are home to renowned high-quality timber.

●Yoshino cedar is used for the floor, wall and ceiling downstairs, and Yoshino cypress is used upstairs. Enjoy the different scent and texture. The space downstairs is also open for the local community and the space is anchored by a large, 15 foot long cedar table. Relax with a drink, a book or computer, watching the Yoshino river stream by.
