KITAYA Ryokan -Cultural Heritage Inn 【文化財の宿 旅館喜多屋】
By KITAYA Ryokan -文化財の宿 旅館喜多屋- Follow | Public

KITAYA Ryokan is a 100-year-old Japanese style building that has been registered as a cultural property of Japan located in Yokohama.
The origin of the building is a State Guest House that welcomed many foreigners back in the old days in Shinagawa, Tokyo. The building was then relocated to where it's currently located in 1930 as a Japanese style inn and restaurant "Kanazawa-en" which had been loved by many people including renowned poets and writers such as Akiko Yosano and Kyoshi Takahama until they closed its door in February 2016.

The building is now reborn as a Japnaese style accommodation (a.k.a. Ryokan) which welcomes anyone who loves the beauty of Japan's good old days.
Our hope is to make KITAYA a place where Japanese culture and other foreign cultures meet as well as the traditional experience of staying and dining in a Ryokan.

「文化財の宿 旅館 喜多屋」は、築100年の国登録有形文化財です。

かつて、横浜(現在の桜木町)で営業していた料亭の満月(創業大正5年)を前身とし
昭和5年に開園した旗亭「金沢園」を、新たに現行法規にて再生、そして保存と活用を
していきたいとの思いからスタートした「泊まれる文化財」です。

ここはかつて、与謝野晶子様が歌会を開かれ、
高浜虚子様が日本探勝会を開かれたところで、
私たちは、そんな歴史を感じられる空間で「宿泊」「食事」、
そしてなにより
日本文化と外国文化の交差点となる出会いを生じさせたいと思っています。

再生した「旅館 喜多屋」は、そんな本来持っている日本の古き良さと
新しいボーダーレスな体験の共有をみなさんとしていきます。
