Story

The Naotake Royal Suite and The Shozan Royal Suite. The royal suites are named after Naotake Odano, a Kakunodate born samurai and relative of the Aoyagi family, as well as Akita City born, samurai tycoon, Yoshiatsu Satake (Shozan). These samurai warriors, who were very fond of fine art, adopted the western shading method that resulted in the creation of Akita Ranga, a Dutch-style school of painting which left a great impact on the world of Western art.
Naotake’s pioneering spirit towards art as well as Shozan’s love for foreign cultures has been incorporated in to the interior decoration of our rooms. You will also find that traditional crafts unique to this area are dotted around each room.
Japanese style suites and Western style suites. These rooms are poetically named after the beautiful skies of this area.
