tourism, leisure industry
Kichibei Murai, the Japanese tobacco magnate used his own funds to build this guest house in 1909. This tangible cultural asset designated by the city of Kyoto, where Renaissance and Rococo architectural styles coexist, offers "dynamic preservation" you can see, touch and feel.
We promote a business model where old and new coexist. We run together a restaurant, hotel, cafe, and function hall.
Please come enjoy the classical atmosphere of our French café and tea lounge dated back from the Meiji era.
