    Catch yourself a lucky omen in our jacuzzi.
    The tile art on the wall surfaces of the bath area is by artist Mie Ishii, who spent two consecutive nights painting them by hand at her Soejima private atelier for Arita ware in Kyushu in 2009. At her Soejima atelier, after baking the tiles in a kiln, she sent them piece by piece to our ryokan in Tokyo, where Ishii, some people involved in construction and myself connected the tiles together and, after writing a number on their back side, asked a tile craftsperson to finish them. Late at night after the tiles were finished, I discovered that one of the tiles of the left foot of an image of a dancing man was upside down, and returned it to its correct position. Even today, that remains a pleasant memory of mine. When I was a child, I would make my way to bustling public baths every night. There, I would witness all kinds of scenes and occurrences, and gained a wealth of knowledge and common sense. Also, when the New Year’s holidays season would arrive, I would greatly look forward to how the large painted images on the bath walls would change. That enjoyment has been passed down to the jacuzzi at Andon, where we hope you will discover relaxation.

    Tea ceremony room
    At Andon, we built a new tea ceremony room made of Japanese cypress to accompany our renovation. A wind furnace has been installed in the straw tatami mats to create a sense of the season at hand. When seen from the counter seats in the teahouse, the view of this area is fantastic. Leaving your busy day-to-day life at the door to savor the flavor of tea leaves through a cup of tea and give it your undivided attention is sure to prepare you for the next day.

    We also encourage the use of this area as a free space to host various events and workshops in addition to tea ceremonies. It can also serve as a stage for Samisen concerts, traditional Japanese dancing, and other performances.

    If you wish to host a workshop or another event, please consult with us over phone or email.
    Usage times are negotiable.

    by cartoonist Ryo Koshino
    They say that one chance meeting gives way to another. For example, I discovered by chance one day that the father of one of my staff members was a manga artist named Ryo Koshino. Upon the renovation of our bathrooms, I asked him to decorate the walls with his work, a request to which he readily agreed.
