About us


We are a Franco Japanese family living in Japan since 2006, with our two girls. Our taste for tropical beaches and old Japanese houses led us to Ishigaki island to restore the Lotus Bleu.

After leaving in Paris and then in Tokyo, after a one year back packer travel in Sout East Asia and South America, We decided to put some distance between us and the big cities, to give up the salary-man way of life for something more relax and more natural.

We try to give a second life to that old traditional Japanese house, by living there, organizing events and welcome guests around our passions: nature, kids, water sports and cooking among others.
