Japanese Feeling

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 choosen 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.

Furniture in Ayame-an

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.

To enjoy a high and clean sound when watching TV and listening to music, a BOSE speaker is at your disposal. Your devices can be connected 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
