Hoshino Resorts has opened Risonare Yatsugatake, a wine-centric resort concept in Japan’s Yamanashi region. Tokyo-based architecture firm Klein Dytham oversaw the $14-million renovation, which saw upgrades made to the property’s guestrooms and dining facilities.
The guestrooms were redesigned with bold colors, wine cork-inspired décor and murals of the Yatsugatake mountains. The rooms have outdoor terraces with natural views.
For dining, the property has an onsite eatery, YY grill, which was also expanded. It now has walls decorated in grape murals and wine boxes complemented by a grape lattice motif across the ceiling.
Other amenities include the Vino Spa and the Otto Sette Restaurant.
