Message on Vajra
Vajra Dream A carefree trip and lodging not bounded by stereotypes.
“Lodging” with an added value that can only be provided here,based on detailed
facilities and attentive services.
That is the Vajra feeling we want you to experience.
Human is also a part of the nature.Thus, in a broad sense, architectural
structure is also a part of the nature.The ideal of Japanese lodging space
is to have it united with heaven and earth;
we produce a sense of such animism to the traveler’s lodge.
We profess ourselves to “shape the mind” and work diligently on our designs
Hasegawa Architecture &
Vajra is like a hideaway where you can liberate your mind and give a break
to your body and soul to reset and regain energy.
From the bright and beautiful scenery of the daytime,Varja’s lighting change
to a warm dim light after sunset.
As your eyes get used to the darkness from dusk, you will gradually see
the face of “Varja’s night” created by candles and indirect lighting.
”Varja’s night” is extremely beautiful.In the areas facing outward,We have
installed LED lighting to keep away flying insects.
We hope you enjoy your stroll around Varja, and do pay a visit to aoi.
Ramming the earth is to tamp down the clay into a mold.
A frame is built using boards around the foot of the wall and the clay
is poured into the mold and tamped down from above.The striped pattern
is made by changing the types and blends of different clays. The clay wall
in Vajra reflects the image of the upheaval of Ago Bay.The rich colors
of the rammed-earth wall are composed of local clays from Ise and Matsusaka.
Normally, the main materials used for Ajiro are shingles,and are woven
together with bamboo skins.This time, to represent the image of Vajra being
unbound by stereotypes,we created the Ajiro using “aluminum.”
