Shonai Hotel Suiden Terrasse / Yamagata Sakata・Tsuruoka 24


Shonai Hotel Suiden Terrasse, opened in September, 2018, is the first hotel to be designed by the world-renowned architect Shigeru Ban.
Ban's design was inspired by the beauty of paddy fields, and is a wooden structure that appears as though it's floating in a field.
There are views of the paddy fields of Shonai Plains and the revered mountains from throughout the hotel - from the guestrooms, sky deck, and the corridors.
It is a place where you can experience the unique topography of Shonai up-close.

The guestrooms have a simple beauty to them. The original design chairs and lamps made with cardboard tubes, and other furnishings create a simple yet special space.
There are double and twin rooms as well as suites.
From the windows guests can enjoy fantastic views, including those of paddy fields of Shonai Plains and the inner garden.
As it is surrounded by fields, away from city lights, you can see a starry sky at night.

At FARMER'S DINING IRODORI they serve dishes made with locally produced ingredients.
Guests can enjoy their buffet breakfast and lunch on the open terrace as they take in the view of Mt. Gassan.
At night, the restaurant becomes a gastropub where you can sample the local sake and wine.
The vegetables used in their salad are grown at their own farm without the use of chemicals, and are harvested each morning by the staff.

Spa & Fitness Suite
The water of the natural hot spring baths have a slightly viscous quality, and is the perfect way to relax after a long day and warm your body.
There is also a soothing aroma of wood from the wooden roof, a unique design feature by Ban. 
The Fitness Suite is equipped with machines by the Italian company TechnoGym, which are even used by athletes.

Everything was great and I was planning to stay for one night, but I regretted that I should have stayed for consecutive nights if time allowed. It was a little disappointing that the restaurant had low illumination at dinner and there was no light at hand, so the ingredients in the jubako were dark and difficult to understand. The three-stage gun was delicious, but the bucket was particularly delicious with just the right amount of salt. After that, I brought a face towel from the room for the body towel when I took a bath, but it was difficult to use because the fabric was thick, so it may have been better if a thinner one was prepared.

I have no complaints about the facilities and staff. On the contrary, the infection control measures were well taken, and everyone responded comfortably. I felt lonely because breakfast was a corona virus. I want to use it again. thank you for helping me. Thank you very much.
