In the Japanese city Setouchi, world famous architect Tadao Ando designed a luxury hotel, connecting the richness of nature, history and culture from long past. The little city of Setouchi has become popular with the growth of its international art festival, attracting tourists from all over the world. With the rise of visiting numbers to the city, Tadao Ando remodeled a former art museum into a small boutique hotel with only seven rooms, facing the Seto Inland Sea. The self-taught Japanese architect is famous for buildings like the Pulitzer Art Museum in Washington or the shopping complex Omotesando Hills in Tokyo.
