modern ryokan

We built kishike with the materials of our old samurai house mixed with the newest design and solutions. We’ve partnered with the best – among others: the architect Ryohei Tanaka (former member of Kengo Kuma & Associates) and landscape architect Akihiko Ono. All the elements, furniture, details are carefully chosen. From ancient Japanese vases to modern technologies everything is here to make your stay unforgettable.  

 

the bedroom

One Zen monk taught us that ‘you can spend your life on half a tatami space and sleep in one tatami space’ which means when you are sleeping, you should focus on sleeping and when you are awake you don’t need much stuff to work. We also believe that sleeping is ​very important and we made a lot of effort to embrace this zen spirit in the bedroom we created for you. The best mattresses, beddings, simplicity.
From the bedroom’s window,​ you can look at and contemplate the garden.

With this concept in our minds,​ we have selected things, furniture​, elements in kishi-ke. Crafted, designed products made by the best Japanese masters. Exceptional​ things of one of their kind.
