Miyagawasuji district will immerse you into a traditional Japanese atmosphere where you can encounter Maiko and Geiko on their way to Ochaya (tea houses).
Ayame-an was designed by the architect Mr. Uoya.
When you open the front door, you will see a fully furnished, spacious and modern entryway.
The ground floor has a luxurious modern Japanese feeling. The kitchen has the newest equipment and has dishes and cutlery.
The bathroom and the veranda offer a superb view on the Japanese garden which can be lighted up at night. This natural atmosphere will provide you a moment of relaxation.
Appreciate a long and agreeable bath in a Japanese traditional bathtub made of metal, called "GOEMON-BURO" in Japanese.
Every detail of Ayame-an were thought to make you fully experience Japan.
Ayame-an's dishes were made by Araki pottery.
Ayame-an's name come from the blue flag iris flower, called "ayame" in Japanese. The stunning colors of this flower were chosen to decorate the dishes of the house.
These potteries are so thin that putting under light, they will become see-through! This transparency is a guarantee of quality.
To please your senses we ordered various dishes with different shapes, sizes and colors.
Those dishes make your food looks more delicious.
The furniture such as beds, desk and chairs are made of solid walnut. We put a "Sealy mattress", used by many renowned hotels, to provide you a high-quality sleep.
The table in the Japanese room on the ground floor was designed by Mr. Uoya. The floor chairs are antique Windsor chairs.
6 gourds are painted on the hanging scroll. In Japan the gourd is a symbol of auspicious especially when there are 6 of them.
Luxurious stay for 2, economical stay for groups and families.
The stunning blend of traditional feeling and modern convenience will make your stay cozy and pleasant.
