Since the very beginning as a representative guesthouse, our hospitality has been enjoyed by many notable guests from all around the world. We have had many distinguished guests and public figures such as Ogai Mori, Helen Keller, Charles Chaplin, etc. Antique furniture, made from cypress and with a taste of Momoyama culture (1573–1615) is set out in the main building that has been designed by Kingo Tatsuko who is the well-known architect of the Tokyo station. The new building, built in 1984, is a great place to enjoy the soothing atmosphere in peace and tranquility amongst nature. The restaurant Mikasa offers superb experiences. Its 100 years legacy ensures the finest tastes and will make you feel special. The restaurant started in the same year as the hotel. Many state guests have visited and appreciated the fine French cuisine.

This is a restaurant where you can enjoy many treasures. After the luxurious dinner, please visit "the bar" which is a very romantic place.
