The Ryokan Collection is delighted to welcome a new member to its group of fine ryokan - Auberge Maki no Oto Toyama in Toyama Prefecture. Nestled in the foothills of Toyama, amid the timeless landscape of rice paddies, fields, streams, ponds and forests known as satoyama, the beautiful Auberge Maki no Oto Toyama awaits, with a way to connect with the ancient rhythms of rural life and a promise of respite from the stresses of everyday life.
Maki no Oto is a Japanese ryokan modeled after satoyama style auberge. Combining the family-style rural auberge with service based on omotenashi, the ancient art of hospitality. The name “Maki no Oto” evokes the feeling one gets listening to the sound of a cheery, crackling fire in the fireplace and the aroma of rice cooking in a makigama traditional wood-fired rice cooker, like the one that graces the ryokan's lobby.
