We renovated a 43-year old building which was built as a Japanese styled hotel with Japanese cuisine. We have café and bar, shared office and event space as well. We’re located in front of Akama Shirine which is dedicated to Antoku, child emperor who perished in the sea during the battle of Dan-no-ura just offshore in 1185. On the other side we have the Kanmon Straits right in front of us.

The view of the straits from our rooftop is amazing. You will see so many various ships coming and going just right in front of you. You can enjoy sunset, night view, and sunrise…different views as time goes, which makes you feel relaxed. Definitely great to chill out.

Besides, It’s handy to walk to tourism places such as Karato Fish Market, Kaikyo aquarium and Kanmon Tunnel. This location cannot be beat!

Also you can meet locals at our cafe and bar and have fun with them and us!

Please ask the staff for more local information! We're pleased to help you plan your trip :)

Karato Fish Market is closed on Wednesdays and you can enjoy buffet styled sushi shops on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays.
Please check hours before you visit.

Prices are per person per night.
