The plastered, calm lobby that welcomes guests first through the entrance displays original artworks that can only be seen at this hotel. What jumps out at your eye is the textile art that uses the Nishijin weaving method to express it in a modern way, incorporating the motif of the pattern and school emblem derived from Awada Elementary School that was once located in this area and the school building map of the time. It is a powerful and vivid work with two layers of atrium and a length of 15 meters. In addition, one of the Kyo-yaki, works of “Awada ware” that have continued since the middle of the Edo period are also exhibited here.

■About the activity program “Kyo Iroha”
We will prepare various cultural experiences unique to Kyoto inside and outside the hotel, such as special opening and special viewing of shrines and temples, production experiences such as lacquerware, kiln things, crafts, etc., and lectures on “food” such as broth and Kyoto confectionery.
◆About Logo Design
I symbolically expressed that it is an experience of learning, deepening, and expanding from the first form (the first Iroha).
An example of “Kyo Iroha”: Fan Xing and tea ceremony experience
When you go through the gate, you will see the appearance of Kyomachiya unique to Kyoto and a garden with stone lanterns. In the seat of Kyomachiya, we reproduced the “throwing fanning” that is said to have been popular among the common people in the Edo period. It is a game to throw a fan at a target set up on a paulownia box stand and compete for points. After enjoying it while being taught carefully with reference to the model of the young lady general, you can guide you to a full-fledged tea room and experience “tea table”. It is a program where you can enjoy the traditional culture of play and tea from “Iroha”.
