Let it be known, for the record, that if my kids ever decide to put me in a nursing home I want it to look like this one. It’s actually a brand new extension to the Hayama Hills nursing home in Kanagawa and was designed by architect Kengo Kuma. It’s located on a peninsula right near Zushi and Kamakura.
They plan to offer full physical therapy (sounds good to me!) within that beautifully timber-clad building. And an impressive floor-to-ceiling lattice-work library of books promises to keep us occupied in our years of retirement. The only thing is, admissions start at around $2500 per month so I better start saving up now.
