Dining / Living room
A garden that exudes a sense of history that comes with the rustic charm of a Kyo-Machiya house built some 100 years ago. The Japanese tatami floor room offers the chance to relax and take in views of the lush green garden that has long been adorned with seasonal color while alleviating all strain on your feet in the sunken kotatsu. Take a moment to rest on a finely crafted zaisu legless chair or Kyoto’s traditional sitting cushion as you take in the refined elegance of the Japanese tatami floor room, dotted with ornaments exhibiting the finest craftsmanship. Comfortable chairs are also conveniently located in full view of the garden on the veranda. Sit back and relax, passing the time while taking in views of the garden, coffee in hand. Such a moment spent in luxury is not to be missed.
We spared We spared no expense in the pursuit of “sleeping comfort” in our bedding. The mattress atop the bed is a “Simmons”. Daitou Shingu’s original 10cm thick futon is used as the futon mattress. This bedding offers the ultimate in comfort and allows easy tossing and turning, perfect for those with back pain. The top coverlet is a light, warm down quilt. Our room concierge is on hand to select the top coverlet from the thin, combination, and dual-layer quilts according to the season, ensuring you a comfortable night’s sleep all year round.
