A drive up along a winding mountain and riverside roads is the prologue to the Toro, backwoods of Kushiro in East-Hokkaido. Town covered by a dense abundant green welcomes the visitors kindly and unwind from the stress naturally.

We, THE GEEK, want to provide the relaxing space for people to spend their days pursuing their passions, whilst also give undisturbed and tranquil time to deliberate on philosophy of life or new sense of value.
