Your hostess and staffs
Ikuyo, the hostess
My role is to make sure the every service and experience will be perfect for you. My English is not good, though I love to communicate with guests from the world. I believe my own hospitality as adding the last decoration to your dining,and arranging seasonal flowers in every room, etc. are the proud of our ryokan's excellence.
Our head chef
We are certain your dining experience at our ryokan will be unforgettable thanks to our collective presentation of Japanese 'kaiseki' cuisine made in the unique style of Osaka's famous restaurant group!
We are always keen on bringing out the original taste of our raw ingredients. We never use artificial seasoning, but instead use natural flavoring from bonito, kelp and more.
However, the key to creating fine dining is to appeal to all five senses, taking into account the visual presentation as well as flavor and texture.
In this we differ from Michelin, which ranks restaurants based on taste alone, and we look forward to inviting them for a review when they change that standard.
We are the team of people naturally curious and keen on persuing the expectation of our guests. Beyond the language barrier, we would hope our heart,attitude, and our proactive actions will make your stay pleasant.
Please consult us how to differently maximize enjoying your own room, for dining, drinking, using amenities, and making futons( Japanese beds).
