En, a luxury inn limited to one couple per day.
The construction of this rare building was done by a temple carpenter in Shigaraki, Shiga Prefecture, who inherited
the traditional Japanese construction method.
Here, we introduce the charm of Keyakinoyado En.

Koka City in Shiga Prefecture, which borders Kyoto Prefecture, is an area with a long history, including the
construction of “Shigaraki-no-Miya” by Emperor Shomu, and is about an hour drive from Osaka.
Passing through the Sukiya Gate, you enter the entrance. From the beautifully woven Ajiro ceiling to the wide,
polished floorboards, the beauty of Japanese architecture has already captivated you from the entrance.
In addition to the master bedroom with two queen beds, there are two Japanese-style rooms with futon beds, which can
accommodate up to 15 people.

The highlight is the “Irori no ma,” an amazingly large space.
The room has zelkova pillars, high ceilings, a modern wood-burning stove, and a table-type sunken hearth.
The spaciousness of the room, with its large sofa set, creates an indescribable sense of openness.
In contrast to the traditional main house, the bathroom and sauna were newly built in a renovated warehouse.
Both are so luxurious that it is hard to believe that they were prepared only for one guest per day!

Rooms at Keyakinoyado En

The room is enveloped by the dark but warm light that falls on the tatami mats through the yukimi shoji, and the grain
of the ceiling panels reveals the thickness of the wood that has been used over time.
The modest yet powerful Japanese space gently encourages those who are there.

KThe imposing construction of the master bedroom.
The bold dynamism conveys the life force of the living tree itself. The traditional construction method of building
the frame without using a single nail, using only the wood joinery, has a seemingly rugged impression, but behind it
lies delicate stress calculations and thoughtful care.
