The hotel was built at a vast site near JR Miyazaki station, where a factory once stood.
Around it houses and apartments spread in no particular order.
Facilities of the hotel – guest rooms, banquet room and restaurants are arranged to circle the courtyard.
Loosely sloped roof came out as the result of each function underneath. It wraps the entire building – two-storied structure under the deep eaves.
Bamboo is planted and water is laid out in and out of the hotel and its courtyard, providing calm and tranquil environment that stretches even to the residential area.
