The time that flows slowly, the distance between people, and the beautiful nature. The nature is so amazing and beautiful that it has been recognized as a World Natural Heritage site. In this village where time flows slowly, I want to be able to reset myself for a moment. There is nothing but everything. So much freedom. We have created a hostel where you can feel that.
we realized that two and a half years had passed since we opened our doors, and we were about to enter our third year in the second half of the year. Looking back, it has always been hectic and far from my ideal days. However, there were guests who stayed with us regularly, friends who were like family, supporters who cheered us on at all times, and a team that had grown through experience while receiving love from many people. In June 2022, three years after opening, we changed our company name to
“LOVE THANK YOU Co. Our soul is a never-to-be-forgotten LOVE THANK YOU to the earth and its inhabitants, and our eternal mission is to revitalize abandoned buildings, develop dishes made from discarded ingredients, and revive discarded items into new fashion brands.
What is Kunigami Village like?
Kunigami Village’s greatest attraction is its rich natural environment. The large forest with subtropical trees covers 84% of the village area, and is home to many endemic and rare species such as the Yanbaru-quina (Okinawa rail). Noguchi-guerra (Okinawa woodpecker), and Yanbaru- tenaga-kogane (Yanbaru long-armed scarab beetle), which are found only here in the world. In July 2021, it was registered as a World Natural Heritage site, the fifth in Japan.

Kenichiro Koyama was born on August 12, 1986 in Toyonaka City, Osaka Prefecture. He joined ZARA Japan at the age of 20. He excelled at display design backed by numbers, and two years later, at an unusually young age, he was appointed VMD area manager for western Japan. He then switched from the apparel industry to the construction industry, where he worked for about 6 years. During that time, he studied architectural design on his own and became independent. In 2017, after marrying a woman from Kunigami Village in the northernmost part of Okinawa Prefecture, he embarked on a project to revitalize a closed- down hotel that had been in business for over 40 years in the area. In 2018, he established ARCHITECTS & BOTANICAL Inc. in Okinawa Prefecture, and in 2019, he will open YANBARU HOSTEL, a new landmark in Kunigami Village. Kenichiro Koyama Creative Produce Office was established in 2020. In 2022, he changed the name of ARCHITECTS & BOTANICAL Inc. to LOVE THANK YOU Inc. He has been working hard to revitalize depopulated areas throughout Japan by expanding his performance area to the design and entertainment industry and combining it with his own creativity. He is also involved in THE FASHION, a business that transforms discarded clothing into high-fashion suits. In the future, he plans to expand the accumulation of these activities around the world.
