WHERE I WANT TO BE: Asaba, Shizuoka, Japan

Step back in time and into the Japan of centuries past; into a world of beauty and simplicity next to the river Katsura. Asaba welcomes guests to the kind of place that legends are made of.

Choose between twelve rooms and five suites designed with simple, gorgeous Japanese luxury in mind. This may be an old inn, but it has been impeccably maintained and perfectly updated and is now a lovely ryokan.

If you feel the need to get out and explore, the Hakone National Park, Izu Peninsula, and Mount Fuji are all located in the same region as Asaba. Or simply spend a day or evening in the town of Shuzenji. When you’ve made Asaba your temporary home, you won’t want to leave it for long.

Shell Cabin in Southwest England

How amazing is this little shell cabin? Perched on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean in southwest England, this little treasure used to be a coast guard lookout that’s now owned by a private family.

This gorgeous coastal retreat was created by shell artist Blott Kerr-Wilson using only three species of shell: Gold-ringer cowries, white Bubble shells and small dark Nerite. Blott used several thousand shells to complete the piece....and a bucket load of glue!
