Outline

A multi-unit rental property near Ryogoku station. Formerly known as “Honjo,” this region is the hub of Edo period culture. The area is also a popular international tourist destination, as it is home to the Ryogoku Sumo Hall, museums, and dining spots. It is a place to experience old Edo, with a spotlight on the popular sumo wrestling. The building’s design does not disappoint, incorporating the memories of old Edo to convey the charms of Ryogoku. The exterior has an unmistakably Japanese design, using a woven wicker pattern for the walls, while the eaves and soffit have the appearance of unfinished wood. Light from the courtyard draws one’s gaze further into the entrance hall, and the narrow frontage of the lot is used to create the appearance of traditional wooden townhouses.
