A day in the life of Ozu Yasujiro

Ozu Yasujiro is a world-renowned film director who has produced numerous works, including "Tokyo Story," a film about family love.
He was ranked fourth in the "100 Greatest Films of All Time" in 2022 by Sight and Sound Magazine, a publication of the British Film Institute (BFI), and many of his films have been screened at international film festivals such as those in Cannes and Venice.

This plan includes a special private rental of Mugeiso, Ozu's mountain retreat in Tateshina, Chino City, Nagano Prefecture.
Ozu used Mugeiso as a place of work and a space to entertain friends in the film industry.
Here, he spent countless hours with his close friend and scenario writer Noda Kogo.

Creators can feel free to use Mugeiso as a private studio and a place of inspiration.
We welcome you to immerse yourself in the world of Ozu, by visiting the place he loved so dearly.
