■Hotel Riverge Akebono / Fukui French Aujus
“Design Concept”
Hotel Rivage Akebono stands on the banks of the Asuwa River, one of the most famous cherry blossom viewing spots in Fukui Prefecture.
The plan is to convert the main dining room from Japanese cuisine to French cuisine. In an area with many Japanese restaurants and ryotei (traditional Japanese restaurants), the design of this French restaurant incorporates the charms of Fukui, which is a city with unique regional characteristics.
The restaurant’s name, “Aujus (cherry blossom tree),” was used as a motif for the decorated screen that evokes cherry blossom petals floating on the surface of the Asuwa River and their overlapping, and the dining chairs and ceiling coloring are reminiscent of cherry blossom petals, creating a calm, modern space with one-tone colors wrapped in traditional Echizen Japanese paper.
Under the theme of “Fukui, delicious and brilliant,” the chef’s cuisine brings out the best of Fukui’s seasonal ingredients, and the space expresses a new Fukui-ness. A ” Fukui French” restaurant was born, where not only residents of Fukui Prefecture but also tourists from other prefectures can experience the uniqueness of Fukui.
