Rooms

Beautiful western-style rooms and the garden
loved by predecessors: Sakamoto Ryoma,
Katsu Kaishu, and Rai San’yō.

Kagetsu has been preserving the rooms and the garden loved by predecessors. You can stay in historically significant rooms like Ryu-no-ma (Room Ryu) and Harusame-no-ma (Room Harusame). Room Ryu is even used for dinner for state guests, and Room Harusame is the first western-style room in Japan. You can view the delightful garden from rooms, which is said to be modeled after Genroku Gardens. We welcome customers, keeping the garden as it used to be. As the name “Maruyama (“Maru” means circle, and “yama” means a mountain)” shows, the garden’s different height enables you to enjoy the garden’s views from each room. Please spend a pleasant time in historical rooms and the garden with seasonal views, thinking about what the world was like in the past.

A Hauta piece, “Harusame,” was created in this first western-style room in Japan.

The first western-style room, “Harusame-no-ma (Room Harusame),” has the tiled floor, the Japanese glossy coffered ceiling, a beautiful lamp, and Chinese-style windows. Thus, the atmosphere in this room is the product of the mixture of various cultures. This room was where “Hauta Harusame” was formulated; Shibata Hanamori wrote its lyrics there. He likened a prostitute to a Japanese bush warbler, assuming she would be with a man. Hauta Harusame is now a famous piece among poets.

Hiketa-an for loving the seasonal transition in Kagetsu

The name “Hiketa” is from the founder’s hometown; Yamada Tazaemon was from Hiketa-village, Sanshu, Shikoku. Hiketa-ya had the largest area in Maruyama Red-light District, implying that he was one of the authorities. As the annex, there was Chaya (a teahouse) beside the Japanese garden, which was designated as a resting place for the Nagasaki magistrate’s patrol. Nevertheless, we lost the teahouse due to the conflagration in 1879 (Meiji 12), and only the garden was left. Hiketa-an was rebuilt to celebrate the 360th anniversary and is available as the place for a Japanese-style wedding ceremony (shinzen-shiki).
