Next to the dining area is a traditional Japanese room with delicate 'shoji' paper doors, 'tatami' flooring and a stunning view of the inner garden. Admire the garden as you walk along the veranda to your deluxe bathroom with a Japanese wooden bathtub.

The 2F features 2 bedrooms (a Western-style bedroom, and Japanese-style bedroom), each with a window that offers a view of the inner courtyard garden below. You will find an additional shower room and toilet on the 2F for your convenience.
