We have begun accepting reservations after February, 2020!

We’ve finished putting together the room details, lodging rates, and envisioned layouts for our new guest rooms. With this, we have begun accepting reservations for February*, March, and April 2020.

*February reservations will be available for February 21st onward.

After you’ve read through the description of our new guest rooms in this blog post and checked the availability calendar on our website, you can make your reservation using the website’s Booking and Contact Form. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to ask.

We’ll be updating the Guest Room section of the website at a later date, so make sure to refer to the content posted below first. That said, following our renovations, there won’t be any major changes to the information in other sections on the website (Facilities, Access, etc.), so feel free to consult it for any other information.

Note: At present (as of January 2020), the guest rooms are still being renovated, so there may be some changes to how the rooms will look and other details. We thank you for your understanding. After the renovations are finished, we’ll upload photos of the completed guest rooms.

Tsuchi private room (10.7 m²)
A private room for up to two guests

What greets you⁠ is this: traditional earthen plasterwork walls that speak to the natural texture of soil and straw; the silky feel of virgin Japanese cedar flooring; light softly diffused by a ceiling done in local Echizen Washi handmade paper; a spacious king-sized bed on raised tatami straw mat flooring; and a vintage sofa with table. Tempered by the season and the changing weather, let the light of dawn wake you naturally as it gently cascades through the paper screen at the head of your bed. From the window at the bed’s head, you are presented with lustrous black tiling and the ample greenery of the courtyard—from the opposite window, you look down past the sturdy beams of the open ceiling into the rustic ground floor entranceway below.

In a space defined by its expertly-layered earthen plasterwork, we welcome you to experience for yourself life in a traditional renovated machiya townhouse.

Ki private room (12 m²)
A private room for up to three guests (the third on an extra bed)

Entering this room, you step upon floorboards of virgin hiba cypress sourced from the Noto Peninsula with its softly-figured wood grain and delicate, natural scent. You see posts in a wood-framed window with antique latches and frosted glass panes looking down to the courtyard below—all encompassed by natural and white colors of the room’s walls. The two-level bunk bed is built into the wall and features privacy curtains* and night lights. It’s a place for time alone or with a friend (or two), for chatting while sipping tea or losing yourself in a project at the window-side desk. We have made this a space rich in the natural beauty of wood. 

Our hope is for you to pass many pleasant hours here, whatever you choose to do.

*The extra bed does not come with a curtain.

Hari private room (13.2 m²)
A private room for up to four guests 

This guest room features floorboards of virgin hiba cypress sourced from the Noto Peninsula with its softly-figured wood grain and delicate, natural scent. Encompassed by the gentle greys of the room’s walls, the light here softly diffuses against a ceiling done in local Echizen Washi handmade paper. The two-section bunk beds are built into the wall and feature privacy curtains and night lights. Open wide with a clatter the antique wood-framed windows and drink in the seasonal scenery of Kuromon-mae Ryokuchi Park—cherry blossoms in spring, rich greenery in summer, red and yellow foliage in fall, or snowy landscapes in winter.

In this room, rich with accumulated history, take a seat on the rattan sofa or on the floor, open the window, and allow yourself to feel the breeze, the perfume of the seasons, and the gentle flow of time.

Kumo private room (6.6 m²)
A private room for up to two guests

A queen-sized mattress, filling the straw tatami flooring of the room; the deep, summer sky blue of teahouse-style handmade paper wainscotting; traditional earthen plasterwork walls that speak to the natural texture of soil and straw; light softly diffused by a ceiling done in local Echizen Washi handmade paper—the compact size of this room complements this teahouse-inspired minimalist arrangement. Open the antique wood-framed windows with a clatter and drink in the seasonal scenery of Kuromon-mae Ryokuchi Park: spring’s cherry blossoms, summer’s rich greenery, fall’s red and yellow foliage, and the snowy landscape of winter.

Or slide open the paper screen window and stretch out on the mattress to feel the gentle breeze and watch the clouds roll by.
