Why Choose Oozora

A special time spent in an
open space that is typical of
a traditional weaver’s house

A space that stretches out before your eyes in a manner resembling that of a weaver’s house. The magnificent 100-year-old beams propping up the Machiya house give off a real sense of history. The sense of serene calm with a grassy green motif combines with the exquisite craftsmanship on display in the Kumiko woodwork and Kyoto’s traditional Karakami paperwork to draw you in.

A dignified Zen rock
garden with a very
Kyoto-esque aesthetic

The Zen rock garden expresses a natural scenic landscape. The vegetation changing color with the season and the bamboo swaying in the wind afford an even richer sense of quietude. Why not spend a tranquil moment gazing out at the silhouettes and contours formed with the garden lit up at night?
