The theme is continued once you step in as well but the interiors are largely dominated by wonderful neutral backdrops colored in pristine white beautiful beige and brown.

Designed by Kidosaki Architects Studio it is not just the external dome of the residence but also every single element present on the inside that use the Mt.Asama backdrop and play off of it.
