Experience artful accommodation on the beautiful islands of Setouchi, where you can feel the simple yet beautiful Japanese 'Wa'

Naoshima Ryokan Roka

Set in the tranquil Seto Inland Sea, Naoshima, known as the stage for the world-renowned Setouchi Triennial, has captured the attention of many contemporary art enthusiasts. The island's first full-fledged ryokan (Japanese inn), Naoshima Ryokan Roka, embodies the true spirit of Japanese hospitality. Drawing from its name, "Ro," which means open fire, and "ka," signifying mist, it invites you to its tranquil embrace, promising warmth and impeccable service.

The ryokan's designs draw inspiration from Japan's appreciation of natural materials, harmonizing with the surrounding nature using Setouchi's raw materials, such as Awaji Island soil for the clay walls, Tosa washi paper, and Aji stone. Each suite is designed with an open-air bath, with the Roka Suite, in particular, captivating guests with its luxurious yet serene atmosphere. It is dedicated to sustainability, engaging in various initiatives with themes focusing on clothing, food, stay/space (creating structures using locally sourced materials), grounds and beyond (development of lands for natural farming), and energy conservation efforts.

Guests of the ryokan are also treated to many contemporary artworks by emerging Japanese artists, stimulating cultural curiosity and new perspectives. By blending traditional Japanese culture with innovative cultural values, a stay at Naoshima Ryokan Roka promises an unforgettable encounter with the essence of Japan's beauty and cultural depth.
