Maiko and Geiko street, Miyagawasuji Dori

Miyagawasuji district will immerse you into a traditional Japanese universe 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 luxury modern Japanese atmosphere. The kitchen has the newest equipment, dishes and cutlery.
Japanese garden can be lit up at night and you will enjoy it from the bathroom and the veranda. It will give you a moment of relaxation.
We have a big bathtub made of metal which is called "GOEMON-BURO" in Japanese. Everything in Ayame-an makes you feel Japan all the time.


Japanese Feeling

Dishes in Ayame-an was made by Araki pottery.
They are colored Ayame (Blue flag Iris).
That pottery is so thin that putting under light it will become see-through!
We ordered all things, shape, size, etc. for all our guests.
Those dishes make your food looks more fantastic.

Furniture in Ayame-an

The furniture such as beds, desk and chairs are made of solid walnut. We put a Sealy mattress that famous hotels used to make your sleep comfortable.

The table, made by Mr. Uoya, is in the Japanese room on the ground floor. The floor chairs are antique Windsor chairs.

6 gourds are painted on the hanging scroll. The gourd is a symbol of auspicious especially when there are 6.

There is a BOSE speaker. You can enjoy watching TV and listening to music with a high clean sound. You can connect your device to the Bose speaker through Bluetooth.
The clouds, printed on the Japanese craft paper (Karakami 唐紙/ Washi 和紙), symbolize fortune in Japan.唐長 KIRA KARACHO
