Sometimes, less is more, and in when it comes to Onsen Ryokan Yuen, that really is the case. The beautiful minimalism of this design creates an understated elegance and an atmosphere imbued with a true sense of calm. The wood panels complement the open spaces to create a light and spacious feel while also retaining a certain welcoming warmth.
This property’s fidelity to creating a traditional Japanese space allows guests to experience something with a sense of authentic charm. The inspiration for the design can be felt in the buzz of the surrounding city and culture, and we think it provides a unique experience for any guest.
Spend a your time in a traditional Japanese space with a calming raised tatami-floored seating area. The night view of Shinjuku can be seen from the window on an upper floor, making it the perfect city lookout.
It is a calm, quiet space, born of austere and simple design, possessed of minimalist beauty, that welcomes all five senses across all four seasons.
