This traditional Japanese hotel stands beautifully along the river as if it had been there for long time. The design concept was “Miyabi” which means Japanese elegance. It seems loud but there is a refined sense embedded in the design. At the lobby, the mushroom-like stools are placed randomly at relatively wide spaces in between so that guests can cherish their personal space. The geometrical shaped floor and the pattern by the lights are inspired by river surface and shade of a willow tree. At the bar space, the organic-shaped sofa using Nishijin textile lavishly like patchwork quilt.
