The perfect balance of 「和洋」–both a Japanese-style and Western-style — Bonbori-an is a house that has been transformed to provide you with a comfortable space to relax during your time in the city.

Wooden accents envelop the entire house to provide a warm and inviting atmosphere, while the large lattice windows, and tsuboniwa garden create a bright and airy space. You can choose to enjoy a comfortable meal together with family and friends seated at the large dining table, or take a rest within the tatami-lined Japanese room after a day of exploring the city.

GUEST ROOMS
