This room was designed for the late Emperor and Empress in 1950, on the occasion of the National Athletic Festival in Nagoya
The designer was Sutemi Horiguchi, who was a specialist architect of Japanese tea rooms and traditional wooden rooms.
It was his first work after World War II.
The tea room's main attractions are its brightness, thanks to its many windows, and its view of the garden when the sliding paper doors are open.

In 1951, the year after it was built, this room received a Japanese Architecture Congress Prize.
It was an exceptional prize because Miyuki-no-ma was an extension rather than a complete building, and also because it was a traditional Japanese wooden room rather than a modern concrete structure.

It is well-known as a significant work in architectural history, at a time when Japanese architects were adopting the modern western style after World War II.
It is a quiet well-balanced space. The room has a very long tokono-ma, circular windows and sliding doors covered with antique cloth from Southeast Asia.
All of the rooms have a view of the garden; you will enjoy the scenery of the four seasons. We have 12 private rooms of various sizes, and we select your room according to the number of guests.
