We designed a specialty shop for local products from Amami Oshima island. The banyan trees which are native to the island have peculiar and complicated aerial roots which look as if they are tying the branches to the ground. We drew inspiration from the banyan and tried to create a thick and dense space like the space found under this tree.

The taste of brown sugar shochu offered there is exceptionally good.
