Venues(Mizukagami no Ma)
This room was designed by Taniguchi Yoshiro, known as the Great Master of Modern Architecture. Taniguchi, prior to designing the Japanese-style Annex of the State Guest House in Tokyo’s Akasaka, was engaged by Kawabun through the good offices of Tsuchikawa Motoo, then chairman of Nagoya Railroad Co., Ltd., and president of the Nagoya Chamber of Commerce and Industry. He completed the Mizukagami no Ma in 1971.
Taniguchi’s creation is an indescribably luxurious space where the rectangular Water Mirror filling the courtyard outside reflects nature’s ever-changing charm. Afterwards, the sculptor Nagare Masayuki graced the Water Mirror with a stone deck.
In 2011, the designer Kosaka Ryu, an admirer of Taniguchi Yoshiro, converted the floor of the room to imported carpeting, thereby enhancing its comfort while preserving the virtues of the existing structure. The transformation he achieved promises to delight guests for half a century.
We offer a wide variety of items, such as assortments of young sardines (shirasu) braised with sansho pepper, Heavenly Kelp, eel braised with sansho pepper, crossbred duck in soy sauce, and abalone steamed with salt. There are also seasonal baked goods, as well as special sake (rice wine). All make gifts of distinction fit for distinguished recipients, whether on festive occasions or solemn ones.
