Ask any tourist who loves Japan what they like about the country, and you would probably get a long list of answers. From serene tea ceremonies to futuristic robots, Japan offers a blend of well-preserved tradition and modern ingenuity. It’s a land where you can find age-old temples and shrines nestled between towering skyscrapers, where sakura (cherry) blooms and bright neon lights frame the streets. Where else can you see people wearing a kimono while holding the latest smartphone in their hands?
A trip to Japan is a bucket list item for anyone who is enthralled by the country. Whether you’re a frequent visitor or simply a fan of the culture, coming home to a Japanese-inspired house would be a dream come true.

We discovered an upcoming residential condominium inspired by Japan’s four seasons: The Seasons Residences, set to rise in Federal Land’s master-planned community Grand Central Park in Bonifacio Global City. Its latest tower, named Aki, means autumn in Japanese.
Understanding people’s housing needs and fascination with Japan, Federal Land — which celebrates its 50 years of creating thoughtfully designed spaces that leave a positive impact for generations – partnered with renowned Japanese firms, Nomura Real Estate Development Co. Ltd. and Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd. to create The Seasons Residences. The development marries the Japanese tradition of excellence and innovation with Filipino hospitality and a sense of community.
Think about what modern conveniences and technology you know about Japanese architecture and design. It’s all about mixing comfort, design, and convenience. That’s what you’ll get at Aki Tower. A unique Japanese storage system that will spark joy, like kitchen floor storage and bedroom closets. It even has shoe cabinets by the door that give off a genkan vibe, which is a traditional entryway area in Japanese homes where residents leave their shoes before stepping inside the house. Japanese houses are known for maximizing space and functionality. All four towers of The Seasons Residences are equipped with Viscoelastic Coupling Dampers, a breakthrough in earthquake vibration control technology that can withstand earthquakes and high winds, common to the Philippines and Japan. While in each unit of the Aki Tower, the kitchen comes with a space-saving kitchen sink with built-in draining and cutting board, a range hood with Japanese oil filter technology, and even air-washing tiles that lessen humidity and foul smells in the air. Every unit is protected from leaks due to its below-floor drainage system. Even the toilet is uniquely Japanese with its water-efficient Japanese-branded shower toilets. The Aki Tower promises to be a blend of technology and creativity. Hop on a virtual tour of The Season Residences units and amenities here.
