We have renovated a small wooden hut by woods. It stands on a plateau area over 1,000m elevation. When I was a child, my one of a dream was building my secret place like this by myself.

今は ” Sanson Terrace (山村テラス) “という屋号で、自分たちが創りたい空間を、自分たちの手で少しずつ形にしています。プロの大工ではありませんので時間はとてもかかりますが、土地に根ざした味わい深い空間を、少しずつ増やしていきたいと思っています。

・"月夜の蚕小屋" since 2016 (
・"ヨクサルの小屋" since 2018 (
・"木馬のワルツ" since 2021 (


Hello, I’m Daigo.
I live in a small village surrounded by mountains with my wife, our daughter and a cat. The village name is Sakuho town in Nagano.
My life changed a lot by experiences of building a cottage with my friends, and of being big influenced from the summer-cottage culture in Finland.

My job and lifework is creating new countryside lifestyle and culture for our generation through building spaces by ourselves hands. I’m not professional carpenter, so it takes long time to build, but I would like to make spaces which is unique, individuality, warmly, and rooted in the lands.
At this moment, I have finished to build four spaces and I would like to build more spaces little by little…

・"off-grid tiny cottage" since 2014 (
・"old silk worm house" since 2016 (
・"hut Juksul" since 2018 (
・"waltzing horse" since 2021 (

You must understand that food cultures in this area are really high when you stay here. Vegetables, fruits, fishes from mountain rivers, hams and sausages, breads, Japanese sake, cafes, restaurants… Many fascinating people build food cultures rooted in this area.
There are no famous sightseeing spots, but there are excellent lives.
I am so happy you enjoy our life cultures and spend relaxing time!
