Ikuko and Masami
Our house is in the small town of Oiso, Kanagawa, Japan, about an hour and a half from Tokyo, and less than an hour from other known locations such as Hakone, Kamakura and even Yokohama. It is nestled between the sea and the mountains. You can enjoy the beach as well as the amazing views of Mount Fuji.

The house, designed by Masami himself 22 years ago, recreates the shape of a boat. Every part of it is inspired by different styles. Its design is a metaphor for how Epinard will inspire you, like a ship carried by the wind, where different passengers cross paths together, even for just a brief moment in our respective lives.
With Masami'skills as an interior designer, the inside of Epinard is filled with unique and thoughtful touches and details. Let yourself get surprised by what you find in every corner of the house, from a dedicated music room, to the family's two turtles, dog and goat, up to the inspiring artwork hidden around the house.
