Sense of Wonder is a vacation house.
The name originated from a book written by the American biologist Rachel Carson.
In her most influential book Silent Spring; She first addressed the environmental issues to the world in the 1960s.
The posthumous book “Sense of Wonder” tells the story of a fun discovery of Rachel and her young nephew spending time in a vacation home surrounded by the sea and forest.
Every day the joy of discovery overflows, where the voices of birds, the smell of the breeze, the sound of waves, the starry sky, and the forest that changes from moment to moment.It was a place where adults and children could use their eyes, ears, nose, and fingertips and feel their energy restoring.
The name of the property “Sense of Wonder” is a homage to that work.
There are two guest rooms:
a split-level twin bedroom with Ryukyu-tatami flooring and a simple twin bedroom overlooking the Japanese Mizunara Oak trees.
The split-level room can accommodate futons for two people.
You can choose the style that best suits your travel needs.
