Lounge revealing the cultural atmosphere
We have said Mitsu Garden Hotel Kyobashi combined the traditional and modern elements; 
we got to check its interior design then!


***

Whether it is decorative wall or the ceiling of the restaurant, 
all have their own special meaning and significance. 


Decoration wall presenting four seasons
Using 4 colors to express 4 seasons in Japan on the modern decoration wall

In front of the elevator on each floor, 
soft colors of the combination of traditional and modern decoration walls
provide a sense of stability.

Roof design symbolizing the water surface of the Kyobashi River
Ceiling of the restaurant symbolizing the water surface of the Kyobashi River

If you take a closer look at the ceiling, 
the roof of the restaurant presents an irregular shape.
It is a design to show the calm water surface on the Kyobashi River,
giving people a sense of comfort 
to have a good time.

Let's check the 3 significant characteristics in
Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyobashi!

Point ①
Hieroglyphics?
Japanese traditional painting quiz!
What is the meaning of the paintings?

When you walk into the room,
you will find a painting on top of the bed.
horses, chess, turtles, tabi (Japanese-styled socks), horsetails
What do they mean?

Here is the answer!

If you understand Japanese,
you might feel much more interesting. 
Anyways,
Japanese chess pieces "Car" pronounces as KYOSHA (香車);
”Horse” pronounces as UMA or BA (馬);
"4" in four horses pronounces as SHI or YON (四).
Then, try to combine them together
KYO-BA-SHI 
That's Kyobashi (京橋)
The name of this area!

Isn't it interesting?
Seems young people do not really know the tricks recently in Japan.


Point ②
Specialty from a lacquer shop of 328-year history
Tableware tray and tissue box in the room look simple;
 in fact, they are traditional arts and crafts.

These crafts are from the lacquer shop of 328-year history, Kuroeya (黒江屋)

Crafts from Edo Period are still retaining well on the appearance. 
How impressed to feel the importance of cultural heritage.


Point ③
Necessity of business travel

A variety of charging equipment, network cable, 
convenient indoor drying and hanging device, 
as well as all rooms have free Wi-Fi.

All intimate and thoughtful service
no doubt improve the overall comfort for accommodation.

Excellent quality of amenities
