Guestrooms A space of hospitality
where you can feel
the spirit of “suki”

The main building, formerly a traditional Japanese restaurant, follows the Sukiya architectural style that dates back a hundred years. The Annex, which adjoins it, was built to complement the main building’s original design using the best modern architectural and construction techniques. What both of these spaces have in common is the spirit of “suki” (“refined taste”). “Suki” brings to mind traditions such as the tea ceremony, but the origin of the phrase is “to like.” The Sukiya architectural style is meant to please guests with its playful, unconventional approach, based on the designs of traditional Japanese tea ceremony rooms. Accordingly, each of Sowaka’s spacious guestrooms has its own charm. The main building offers rooms with a distinctively Japanese “suki” spirit, inherited from past generations, while the annex rooms bring the concept of “suki” into the modern age.

MAIN

The main building was constructed in the sukiya architectural style as a Japanese-style restaurant between the end of the Taisho Period and around the beginning of the Showa Period.
The design details differ from room to room, creating a sophisticated building showcasing superb craftsmanship and playfulness. Based on the original structure and details,the eleven pleasantly arranged guestrooms come in a wide variety,including rooms with a private garden and maisonnette-type rooms.
Our guests can savor the distinctive charm of each individual room.

ANNEX

The annex avoids the uniform structure of a regular hotel in which the corridors are lined with doors.
Rather, with the spacious layout of the annex,the rooms are not adjacent to each other.
To get to any of the rooms the guest walks down a common corridor,then enters through a short passageway leading from the corridor,as if walking down a narrow alley in Kyoto.
Each of the rooms is unique: some are long and narrow like townhouses,some come with an additional small tatami-matted room, and others are equipped with a semi-outdoor bath,to accommodate and satisfy guests with various needs and preferences.
