The location of HOSHINOYA Fuji offers views of Lake Kawaguchi and, even more impressively, a breathtaking view of Mt. Fuji--one of the biggest spiritual icons for the Japanese. At the same time, the space, itself, is intimate and relaxed, gently inviting guests to enjoy its natural offerings.Takeishi's lighting takes into account both of these qualities.
This is why lighting in the public areas becomes cozier as the guest climbs up the premises, from the reception to the cabins, the dining hall, and, finally, to the top of the Cloud Terrace. In this way, it is in sync with both the sense of comfort evoked by the forests as well as the warmth of the hospitality offered by the resort's Glamping Masters.
The cabins feature indirect lighting that spans the length of the room, with downlights used only sparingly. A soft light spreads across the ceiling and floor, enhancing the feeling of comfort offered by the room the longer one stays. The landscape, itself, is dotted with tiny lights that only illuminate the footpaths. These lights are intentionally understated so as not to detract from the innumerable stars which are visible at night.
