"Itsukushima Iroha", an inn in Miyajima, Hiroshima Prefecture, is neither a traditional Japanese inn nor a Western-style hotel. It is a new type of inn that combines both the "ryokan" where Japanese culture and traditions live, and the "convenience of a hotel" that is familiar to guests from oversea...

Modern Japanese furnishings that make use of natural materials

The guest rooms at Itsukushima Iroha are cool spaces inspired by Japanese culture and tradition, making use of natural materials such as wood, earth, and stone.

There are pure Japanese-style rooms with only Japanese-style rooms, but most of the rooms are Japanese-Western style rooms with twin beds, a Japanese-style room, and a living room. While emphasizing the comfort of a hotel, we believe that you will experience the atmosphere of a ryokan in the interior of the building, which uses materials unique to Japan. Among them, we would like to introduce the "Suite Room", which was newly established with last year's renewal.

Sweet Sea - A special room that awakens the five senses.

The point of "Sweet Sea" is the view. Upon entering the guest room, guests are greeted by the expansive view of Hiroshima Bay. In the past, shoji was used for this window, but due to its structure, it had the disadvantage that it could not be fully opened.

Therefore, we introduced a pleated screen made of Japanese paper. We hope that you will be able to enjoy the view to the fullest while retaining the warmth of the Japanese atmosphere.

Tsukinomi processing has been applied to the ash wood used for the bathroom and bedroom floors. For Japanese people who take off their shoes indoors, the material of the floor is very important. I would like everyone to experience the comfort of sticking to your bare feet with Tsukinomi processing.

It is a special special room where the scenery outside the window and the textures and textures of materials such as stone, wood, plaster, and Japanese paper are united to awaken the five senses.

Sweet Mountain - Another special room surrounded by natural materials.

The first thing that catches your eye when you enter the guest room is the openwork brick wall.

Unlike ordinary bricks, which are rough and rough, this glossy brick wall is made using glaze. Please enjoy the texture of the glazed bricks that subtly change color depending on the viewing angle.

Since the guest room is on the mountain side, the bathroom has the image of a cave. The tiles of Shigaraki ware, each with a different uneven expression, give a sense of depth like a cave.

We believe that you will be able to feel the slow passage of time surrounded by mountains and natural materials that show various expressions depending on the time and season.

In addition, the suite room fully uses materials unique to Japan, such as Japanese paper wallpaper and glaze tiles. At first glance, it looks like a western design, but each carefully selected material gives you a sense of the warmth that is unique to Japan.

Warmth of materials unique to Japan

It is said that many more craftsmen were involved in the building of old Japanese houses than there are today. Carpenters, plasterers, tile burners, tile makers, and other craftsmen all worked hard to make the most of their homes. Handcrafted techniques and warmth reside in the houses that are built in this way.

The materials used in the guest rooms of Itsukushima Iroha are carefully selected to convey the warmth and tradition of Japan. It is not only a space where Japanese people can feel nostalgic, but also a space where customers from overseas can feel the warmth of materials unique to Japan and the handiwork of craftsmen.
