Time at Jyoseikan

Plan1 Relax in the lobby

Relax in the lobby

Once you check in and relax in your room for a moment, you have an option to come down to the lobby.

You can see a big tree called a Melastomataceae (Heterocentron elegans Cote d'Azur) in the courtyard. Generally, the tree rarely flowers, but here you will be able to enjoy its elegant purple flowers as the name implies.

In the cabinet in front of the tea lounge "Seseragi", we proudly display pictures of the royal family and the former prime minister Mr. Yoshida. He was one of the VIPs we have welcomed, and he used to love our hotel wholeheartedly. We also exhibit an "Old Parr" bottle he enjoyed. We look forward to having you here with all these precious displays.

Would you like a drink or something nibbly? Then, our tea lounge "Seseragi" would be the best place to go.

Our top recommendation is the "Fancy 3 Desserts Platter." We serve vanilla ice cream, purple sweet potato paste and sweet potato chips. The chips are seasoned with salt and butter. Try eating them with ice cream; you'll experience a fascinating harmony of flavor!

Other items on the menu include "Beauty juice" with collagen, "Mango ice cream & crushed ice cream "which is perfect for a hot summer's day, etc. We are waiting for your visit!
