XIV Toba Bettei

XIV Toba Bettei

Guest accommodations at the XIV Bettei, a membership resort hotel at Toba on the Shima Peninsula. The 2016 G7 Summit was held nearby. These rooms are contained within an annex high over the Pacific Ocean. An interior pond framed by a traditional Japanese garden provides a sense of continuity with the sea in the distance, while an extensive use of “wa” (a native Japanese esthetic that emphasizes natural harmony) accentuates the facility. “Wa” is also employed throughout interiors in modern-day expressions of this ancient cultural concept.
