Our hotel is over two hundred years old and was originally built as the main hall for the leader during the Edo period in Japan. When you enter through the wooden entrance of the stately hotel, you feel like you have entered another era, where time has stood still. The building is still made from the original wood which has deepened in color over time and has become a shiny brown through constant use.
