The Ryokan Collection is delighted to welcome a new member to its group of fine ryokan - Auberge Maki no Oto Kanazawa in central Kanazawa. Located in the center of the historic neighborhood of Kanazawa's Higashi Chaya district, the beautiful Auberge Maki no Oto Kanazawa fits seamlessly into the streetscape of the famous historic town. This thoroughly Japanese ryokan draws its concept from satoyama inspired auberge. Satoyama is an ancient rural Japanese landscape of small farms growing rice and vegetables, where the people have lived in a close and sustainable relationship with nature for untold generations.
Inside, it expresses a modern version of the ryokan. Combined with auberge style sensibility, Maki no Oto's guests can experience a fusion of machiya - traditional residential townhouse style stay and satoyama inspirations in a small, friendly, family-style atmosphere.
