The Swiss mountain lodge style building was built as a guest palace of Kobe City in the early days of Showa. It was once selected as one of the best 100 architectural sites in Japan. You can choose your guest room from traditional Japanese styles or blending styles of Japanese and Western elements. The best season to stay in this hotel is in the early Spring when the cherry blossoms surrounding the hotel are in full bloom. The well-kept Japanese garden and splendid over view of Osaka Bay are a specialty of the hotel. Meals are prepared by using fresh local ingredients and are very tasty and delicious.
