A new boutique-style beachfront resort on Amami Island officially opened on July 10. DenPaku The Beachfront MIJORA is a collection of 13 contemporary oceanfront villas. They were designed by Yasuhiro Yamashita of Atelier TEKUTO.

Nightly rates are around 58,000 Yen (approx. 535 USD) for two persons, including breakfast.

The DenPaku brand began in 2016 as a way of both preserving and promoting traditional kominka-style construction methods by incorporating them into accommodation facilities. There are now 16 completed DenPaku projects around Amami Oshima, Kakeromashima and Tokunoshima islands.
