The luxury of doing nothing.
The unique experience of Hokkaido.
MAOIQ is an accommodation villa in Naganuma, Hokkaido. Situated in the east of Naganuma is Maoi hill with Yubari river to the north and Chitose river in the southwest.
In the spring cherry blossoms and other local flowers bloom, and small animals awaken from their winter slumber. A
perfect backdrop for flower viewing and picnics in the sun.
In the summer the song of the cuckoos fills the morning air, and the beautiful rice paddies spread.
In the autumn rice crops waiting for harvest dance in the wind.
In the winter the endless snow field blankets everything with a brilliant ivory.
