It still retains much of its original appearance today, and was registered as a national registered tangible cultural property in 2007 as a residence that shows the lifestyle of the former daimyo family before the war.

The space is considered to be a luxury pre-war residence.

This building was built around the middle of the Edo period. This land belonged to Chojiro Murakami, who made a fortune manufacturing wooden wax, and it was a storehouse for goby nuts, the raw material for wooden wax. Although it is a warehouse, the ceiling is high and there are skylights, giving it an open feel. The interior is decorated in chic colors that complement the wooden architecture. The water supply area on the first floor was intentionally placed in the center of the room in order to preserve the clay walls of the storehouse. Because the bathroom is made of glass, it is a space where you can enjoy bath time while looking at the structure of the building.

3. Spacious and comfortable deluxe room

One of the deluxe rooms is a renovated residence of Mr. Umejiro Imaoka, who founded the Imaoka Silk Mill, which opened in 1893 (Meiji 26). The raw silk from the Imaoka Silk Mill has been repeatedly used for official textiles by the Imperial Household Ministry, and in 1928 (Showa 3), when it was selected as the official raw silk for the enthronement ceremony of Emperor Showa, it was given to a plum tree in the courtyard by the Imperial Household Ministry. You can feel the history even from the old trees. Inside the guest room, there are cocoon-shaped lights and hanging scrolls decorated with raw silk from Ozu, all of which are meant to convey the story of the hotel being once a silk mill, so be sure to take a look.
