Hotel Gajoen, is widely believed to be the model for the setting of Miyazaki Hayao’s Oscar-winning animation, “Spirited Away”. Originally this hotel was built by the founder Hosokawa Rikizo to offer museum-like setting wherein visitors could enjoy food and a bath. Japanese style reception room is covered with Tatami, Japanese style of mat and you can enjoy the feel of soft rush with your sole. We hope you could enjoy this very Japanese setting night with some Japanese music.
