The secrets that lie within

Raku Ichi Residences

An exclusive development that celebrates the dedication and craft of soba master Tatsuru Rai. To realise his vision, lead architect Tanabe Nobuaki worked with award-winning Design Haus Liberty.

 

Design elements evoke the art of Hokkaido’s first people, the Ainu, with the residences tied together by Niseko’s first modern Japanese zen garden.

about

soba master Tatsuru Rai

Most people making soba from scratch, mix wheat flour with the buckwheat to make it easier to work. Not soba master Tatsuru Rai. With centuries of samurai ancestry, he was taught to uphold the most exacting standards in everything.

Now, after decades of serving up soba perfection at Raku Ichi, the humble but world-famous restaurant he built himself, Tatsuru-san is passing on his secrets. And his legacy extends well beyond culinary artistry, for the next phase of the Raku Ichi story will see it reimagined as the centrepiece of an exclusive collection of exquisite residences.

 heritage of the Ainu

rooted in culture

Channelling Tatsuru’s meticulous approach, and rooted in the cultural heritage of the Ainu, Hokkaido’s first people, the project has been realised by architect Tanabe Nobuaki.

At its heart is a zen garden, evoking the surrounding winter landscape – the peaks of Annupuri and Yotei stood majestically above snow-blanketed fields and woods. Flanking this are the restaurant and residences, exhibiting an elegant and contemporary Japanese aesthetic, with extensive use of traditional materials, all accented by Ainu-inspired artwork and furnishings.
