Okinawa City located in the central part of Okinawa Prefecture. It is a project to restore the long-established guest house “Catherine” in the dormant state by locals’ administrative members.

 

 

Nice to meet you.

We Plusco (Purasuko) is now possible to launch the inn on the corner of the shopping street of this time Okinawa City.

The name is “Guest House Catherine”.
On the first floor of the inn, ” Taiwanese food Catherine that”, there is a shop where Catherine’s Taiwan-born owner to cut and fill alone. 32 years since its establishment, a well-established store everyone knows about people in the area. At night it is still the old-fashioned heart-warming scenery where local regulars gather to make flowers bless outdoor stories.

Ground floor: Taiwanese Catherine

Founding in 1984, repeatedly struggling

Katherine set up a shop in Okinawa City, 1984 years ago 32 years ago. The shopping area at the time was very busy and it seems that it was difficult to find a place to open a shop. Catherine started from a small site of only 4 tsubo at the beginning, continued to spread the shops and shops, and it came to acquire the current building at the end of the hardship.

On the 2nd to 3rd floors of the 3 floors building you got to the guest house

After moving to the current building, it continues to fight with the pain of buildings such as leaks, and in the first few years it seems that it was hard to become a neurosis. First of all, after starting the first floor as a shop, I rebuilt the entire building as hard as possible, and it seems that it became possible to operate the guest house on the 2nd to 3rd floor.

The management of the guest house along with the shops on the first floor got on track and produced many encounters and exchanges between visiting tourists and local people. Some customers are still familiar with visiting once a year from outside the prefecture.

Although such a guest house Catherine, it is something that labor is costly to operate the inn. Recently Mr. Catherine became difficult to operate, unfortunately the state of a break has been continued.

(Futons waiting for the turn)

I want to revive the guesthouse Katherine!

At such a time, we met Catherine in a certain way and immediately thought “I’d like to revive this guesthouse full of many people’s thoughts!” Mr. Katherine himself was sorry for the state of dormancy for some time, so when I asked for consultation, I was fortunate to be entrusted with the management of the hotel. This is the reason that the project of this time was born.

We would like to revive this historic guest house Katherine with the following concept.

· Utilizing the context of “Catherine” so far, many prefecture tourists visiting Okinawa, and overseas people including Taiwan, will be able to experience live exchanges with locals.

· Taiwanese taste is strengthened by the resurrection, and it goes to the place which becomes the new symbol of the area.

Things to do through CAMPFIRE

We wanted to start this project with many people who have a willingness to Catherine and those who sympathized with the purpose of the project.

To that end, we will also prepare what you can feel like setting up “accommodations” such as “lantern sponsor rights” or “Catherine honorary ambassador” from those that can be used for lights such as accommodation tickets It was.

Moreover, although I think that it wants to make use of the texture of the building as a taste as much as possible, there are parts which necessarily need refreshing. I would like to devote the funds gathered in this challenge to the renovation cost for that. I will use it so that everyone can use the accommodation more comfortably.
