Born in Yokohama City, Kanagawa Prefecture in 1967. Graduated from the Environmental Design Course, College of Art, University of Tsukuba in 1990. Studied under Yoshihiro Mashiko at Mashiko Atelier from 1991-1994. Established Yasushi Horibe Architectural Design Office in 1994. Received the 18th Yoshioka Prize in 2002 for “Ushiku Gallery.” Received the 2016 Architectural Institute of Japan Award (work) for the Chikurinji Ossuary. 2021 2020 Mainichi Design Award Winner. 2007 – Professor at Kyoto University of Art and Design Graduate School. 2022 – Professor at the Open University of Japan.

Mr. Horibe designed “Satologue” based on his belief that “the major role of architecture in the future is to create an environment where we can look at things that are already of value and notice them.” I did. An old wooden house has been renovated into a restaurant, a warehouse on the premises has been renovated and revived as a wood sauna, and clean river water is drawn into the cold bath. With a design that allows you to experience Okutama’s nature with all five senses, we offer an experience where you realize that you are surrounded by treasures that already exist.
Restaurant “TOKIRO”
TOKIRO is a renovated old folk house that has been opened as a restaurant that talks about Okutama’s ‘time’.It has large windows on the garden side to minimize the separation between the outdoors and the indoors, and the restaurant opens out before your eyes. While looking out at the rich nature, you can enjoy “railside gastronomy” using ingredients from Okutama and Ome.

●Reminisce about life in an old folk house and enjoy the borrowed scenery of Okutama
The design takes advantage of traditional Japanese houses, which are designed for people to live on the floor, and allows them to enjoy the borrowed scenery at eye level. From the counter seats along the window, you can see the Okutama mountains and biotope spreading out in front of you, as well as the clear waters of the Tama River flowing below.
[Image 4:×1771.jpg] counter seat
Following the flow of the Tama River, table seats with chairs and semi-private rooms are arranged on either side of the counter seats, and each space captures a different view of Okutama’s natural scenery. The interior uses woods traditionally used in Japan, such as cedar, cypress, sawara, and chestnut, to create a simple and calm space.

●Gastronomy along the line
At TOKIRO, our chefs focus on the nature and region of Okutama and offer “railway gastronomy” that incorporates the stories of the land into their dishes.
The menu items are prepared using French-based cooking methods, and use plenty of local ingredients such as wasabi grown in the rich waters of the upper reaches of the Tama River, fresh river fish, and locally harvested yuzu. In the future, we plan to use fresh vegetables and mushrooms grown by the chef in the fields on the premises. In addition, we infuse new value into ingredients that would otherwise be thrown away because they cannot be sold locally, such as deer heart, yamame trout with damaged fins or after spawning, and small jisuke potatoes. We offer a food experience that will make you feel nostalgic.
The drinks served at the restaurant include sake made by sake breweries and breweries connected to Ome and Okutama, such as Ozawa Sake Brewery and VERTERE, so you can fully enjoy the deliciousness of the region.
*Menu contents may change depending on the season and availability of ingredients.

“FUKISUI” is a renovated concrete warehouse that has been reborn as a wood-fired sauna that you can hardly experience in the city.It is a sauna that allows you to experience Okutama first-hand and connect with its climate. There is a wood sauna that uses firewood from this area, which has a rich history of forestry, a cold bath that uses water drawn from the river, and an outdoor bath surrounded by greenery. Spend a refreshing moment immersed in Okutama’s climate and connecting with nature in this sauna where you can fully enjoy the wonderful sauna elements found in this area: firewood, water, and air. Consuming local wood in this wood-fired sauna and participating in local forestry operations is one of the reasons why FUKISUI exists.

●After the sauna, enjoy special sauna food in the lounge.
After working up a sweat in the wood-fired sauna and relaxing in the cold water bath and outdoor air bath, we will serve original drinks made with herbs from the garden in the lounge on the first floor of the restaurant. We also offer burgers made with fresh ingredients such as local river fish, which can be added as an option.
The lounge also has a variety of books on the theme of “people’s hometown” selected by “Okutama Bunko,” which is active in Okutama. Please enjoy a relaxing moment while thinking about your connection to the forest, trees, and land.

Field walk around the landscape and surrounding natural environment The landscape design on the premises of “Satologue” is handled by Shuichi Yanaga, who specializes in creating gardens that take into account the local vegetation and history. The water supply equipment and fish cages that were functional when the fish farm was in operation have been regenerated, and running water drawn from the river is used. With the cooperation of wasabi farmers in Okutama, we are also creating hand-built wasabi fields, biotopes, and fields. Additionally, together with ecosystem research professionals, we aim to create a unique field so that the Satologue site will become a healthy habitat for Okutama’s flora and fauna.

Staff who moved to the area and work at “Satologue”
Four young staff members who moved from Tokyo work as storytellers who connect memories of Okutama at “Satologue.”
Chefs Yuta Komagamine and Kazuki Takanami of the restaurant Tokichiro were originally friends from their culinary school days, but they moved to Ome City to participate in this project. Moved to. While learning local cuisine from local people and growing crops in the fields, they are trying to pass on food culture based on the French cooking methods they have gained experience. I am also discovering my role as a chef by making use of ingredients that would otherwise be thrown away in the community and turning them into delicious dishes. Takumi Akiyama and Yukari Suemizu are in charge of service at the restaurant and sauna. Having moved to Okutama, I have long been interested in regional revitalization initiatives, and by leveraging the hospitality I have cultivated at first-class hotels, I will provide guests with a comfortable space full of hospitality and service that will leave a lasting impression on them. .
These four staff members are waiting for you, aiming to create a facility where customers can enjoy not only the taste of the food and communication, but also the stories of the area.
