A Stage for Omotenashi

Omotenashi, or hospitality, starts when your family and friends step inside this machiya,
as they are greeted by gentle light passing through the wooden lattices.
The spacious earthen floor entrance welcomes each of your guests wide and open arms.

Second part of Omotenashi starts around the cedar dining table.
This is where you perform and impress everyone with your signature dish.

A stage of your dream.
A stage filled with joy and laughter.

A Place called Home

Return from a busy day or long journey.
Just glaring at the garden in the bathtub will heal your body and mind.
A house that combines the good old-fashioned atmosphere of a machiya and the comfort of modern living
is a home that you want to go back to, no matter where you are.

Otsu Nagara Machiya

Not to mention the comfort of living.
The magic on how this machiya expresses itself so beautifully comes from the
wooden beams, antique furnitures, mud walls, and lattices.
Each of them reflected the skill and thoughtfulness of the designers and craftsmen.

Otsu Nagara Machiya

On the second floor is a spacious bedroom facing south.
In the morning, the room is illuminated by gentle sunlight.
At night, it transforms into a calm and elegant space.

Otsu Nagara Machiya

Kyorakusha is where you can welcome guests with the utmost hospitality.
More importantly, it is a home for you and your loved ones to enjoy living abundantly.
