A former sericulturist’s house

Throughout history, the silkworm trade has flourished in this region.
This villa is a renovation of the former residence of the Fujisawa family,
one of the most wealthy and influential sericulturists in the local area.
The name TAË comes from the professional technique known as tae,
which refers to the intricate work involved in processing silkworm cocoons and lacquer
by interweaving silk threads, washi paper pulp, lacquer, and history.
Despite being a compact, one-story house,
it offers a distinctly comfortable space that is perfect for accommodating long-term stays.
The interior is accented by the unique artworks of lacquer artist
Sanae Tanaka created exclusively for this location.
