In the trees of Shizuoka in Japan (sometimes called the “Japanese Riviera,” lies Jikka, a commune of tent-like cottages designed by Toyko-based architect Issei Suma. Jikka is a retirement community designed to be a calm, relaxing place tucked away in trees and mountains. Created specifically for two women as they approached the age for retirement, Jikka is not simply a place to live, but it is also a facility that prepares and distributes meals to the area’s elderly population.
