Description

A third place (or third space) is the social surroundings separate from the two usual social environments of home, and those that one lives with ("first place") and the workplace — where people may actually spend most of their time ("second place").   Examples of third places would be environments such as cafes, clubs or parks.  Mr. Tetsuyama would like to make his old farm house one of these safe and relaxing third places, establishing a feelings of a sense of place for guests to truly immerse themselves in the Japanese countryside.
