Interior space

The floor-to-ceiling windows give you a panoramic view of the terraced rice fields. The unique light blue artwork space “Café Reflet” is created by Jean-Luc Vilmouth : photographs taken by local residents are hung on the ceiling and reflected on the round table surfaces, giving you a sense of being embraced by the nature of Matsudai.
