Kengo Kuma-designed Buildings

隈研吾設計建造物群(Kuma Kengo Sekkei Kenzo-butsu Gun)
A village of architectural beauty by Kengo Kuma - designer of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics main stadium
The picturesque town of Yusuhara is dotted with architectural wonders designed by Kengo Kuma, including the Kumo-no-Ue-no Hotel (lit. Hotel above the clouds). The buildings pay homage to the Japanese cedar, something Yusuhara is famous for.
As Yusuhara is more than 90% forested area, the town takes environmental care seriously and is utilizing natural energy. There are numerous buildings made with cedar using traditional Japanese building techniques, giving the town a very Japanese feel.
