Room Features

  • Kakishibu-an Exterior Walk down a narrow alleyway tucked away in a bustling neighborhood to find a machiya house with dark wooden lattice windows and doors, and contrasting white walls.
  • Kakishibu-an 'Tsuboniwa' Garden The large glass window in the living room showcases the tsuboniwa (inner garden). Enjoy the traditional Japanese greenery-- beautiful any time of the year.
  • Kakishibu-an Kitchen Behind the shoji doors (paper sliding doors), you will find a fully functional kitchen, along with basic appliances, cookware, and dishes and cutlery for 5 guests.
  • Kakishibu-an Living Room From the entrance way, step into the 1st floor washitsu Japanese room lined with traditional tatami flooring. With sunlight filtering through the latticed windows and a large window that opens into the machiya’s tsuboniwa, this room inspires a sense of serenity.
  • Kakishibu-an Japanese-Style Loft A smaller Japanese-style loft area sits adjacent to the western style room on the 2nd floor.
  • Kakishibu-an Western-style Room The western-style bedroom on the 2nd floor reveals an open ceiling, allowing for you to appreciate the craftsmanship of the kokerabuki shingled roof. The large wooden beams that stretch across the ceiling add both drama and warmth to the room.
  • Kakishibu-an Bathroom Unwind in the bathroom lined with hinoki wood. This Japanese cypress is an aromatic cedar that promotes relaxation and healing. As it can only be found in areas where the water and air are pure, hinoki also holds a sacred place within Japanese history.
  • Kakishibu-an Washroom The 2nd floor has a separate washroom. The doors that open up to this washroom feature tosa-washi, an exquisite Japanese washi paper hand-made by skilled craftsmen from Kochi, Japan.
