The entrance hall welcomes guests with the serenity of traditional Japanese temples and gardens, which allows visitors to experience the atmosphere of Kyoto. The combination of ceramic tiles spread across the floor, moss growing in the garden, along with a portrait of the Thunder and Wind Gods set in a jet-black background, imitates a quiet temple atmosphere. Please enjoy your stay in this one-of-a-kind accommodation that embodies the serenity of Kyoto.
Fujin Raijin Portrait
(Thunder and Wind Gods)
Made by Kyoto's long-established gold-leaf shop, "Hori Kinpaku," especially for Gekkou-an, the piece is based on Ogata Kōrin's "Fujin Raijin" (Portrait of Thunder and Wind Gods). The portrait is made using only gold, silver and platinum on a black lacquer board.
Oribe Ware Ceramic Tiles
Made by a Kyoto ceramic artisan, Hirono Toshihiko, these tiles are created through a process of repeated glazing and firing to affix the tiles' vivid colors. The tiles are reminiscent of tea and moss, which are symbols of Kyoto. The tiles make one feel as if they are walking through a moss garden.
Japanese Style Room
In the Japanese style room where one can see the Tsubo garden, there is a horigotatsu for use (a heated, Japanese table with leg room added below the floor level). The ranma (an openwork screen) created from one piece of wood depicting cranes and pines, wishes each and every guest good luck for the stay.
The bedroom is equipped with a walk-in closet and study.
For a comfortable night's sleep, we have prepared two Sealy double beds.

Moon and Mizuha
Works made by Mr. Toto Akihiko from the Karachō shop established 400 years ago, a traditional Kyoto paper-crafts store, decorates the space.
Made in the same form as 400 years ago, the new moon that is said to represent the beginning of things along with the dragon and its child are made from a technique called shifuku.
This work that wishes good luck for each visitor, is made in a dark blue color that invites guests for a comfortable sleep.
