Nazuna has created a themed in-stay experience nonpareil on the premise of exposure to traditional Japanese culture. Tucked away in a quiet residential area to the east of World Heritage Site Nijo Castle, Kyoto Cha no Yado (“tea lodge”) Nazuna Nijo-tei has given new life to a 77-year-old gem of a Kyoto townhouse, turning it into the main building “Nijo-tei” and a private cottage-style “Nijo-bettei” or annex. Conceived as an inn for new style of travel that incorporates the joy of Japanese tea, from sadō (tea ceremony) in a tea room to tea aromatherapy and tea-infused baths, Cha no Yado Nazuna Nijo-tei has been recognized in the 2017 Michelin Guide for Kyoto and Osaka. The guest rooms in the main building of Nijo-tei, all named after types of tea (“Matcha,” “Gyokuro,” “Hōjicha,” and “Genmai-cha”), are suites that fuse wood-frame architecture redolent of Japanese tradition with modern design, each with its own open-air hot spring bath. The result is a uniquely luxurious spin on home away from home. The sumptuous breakfast that takes the guest’s choice of Kyoto ingredients, seasonal vegetables, and meat or fish to grill over charcoal on the sunken hearth is another feature of the stay that has proven very popular with guests from Japan and beyond.
