Ryugon is one of the most famous guesthouses in Japan.
It opened its doors as a guesthouse in 1969 after the construction began in 1964.
Utsugi Toshio, the founder of this traditional ryokan, saw a lot of houses in his hometown replaced by modern buildings when he returned from a longer stay out of town. After several unsuccessful attempts to convince the villagers to preserve the traditional buildings, he started to collect houses to combine them into a beautiful Japanese guesthouse.
In 2019 this hoary guesthouse in Niigata was temporarily closed and completely renovated to reopen in a new and beautiful look in the summer of the same year.
Although ryugon is now a luxury hotel, it still has the old charm. The best architects and interior designers have thought of how to transport the message of the Snow Country through material and shapes and the result is gorgeous.
