“A ambivalent touch of general Toyotomi!”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Let alone the elegant style, great food and extreme warm staff, the adjacent garden carries especially a historical touch. Its name 'Gumpo-en' makes up part of the hotel's name. Its designer Sen-no-Rikyu is a close friend of the famous general Toyotomi Hideyoshi, who summoned an extravagant cherry blossom party at Yoshinoyama in 1594. However, the designer, who is a master in tea ceremony, was ordered to go through a ritual suicide by general Toyotomi.

It is this ambivalent touch that comes through time that makes you feel losing yourself in a morning stroll around the garden Gumpo-en..

Room Tip: Driving up Yoshinoyama is not a bad idea if you can stand walking several hours around the area.
