The Sanskrit word “sowaka” means “Happy / Best Wishes”
This word of blessing, often used at the end of the Buddhist sutras,
is nostalgic to the ear yet new – and it fits well in Kyoto which has many Buddhist temples.

Feast your eyes on the greenery of the courtyard and relax in your room while feeling the rustling of the wind.
Not only is the hotel situated in a wonderful location,
but its greatest charm is its luxurious space combining the nostalgic past with the new.
