Hotel Wing International Premium Kanazawa Ekimae opens
Partners Information: ‘Hotel Wing International Premium Kanazawa Ekimae’ opened Sunday, 1 April 2018.
Hotel Wing International Premium Kanazawa Ekimae was designed by architect Ryuzo Shirae. This architect also designed Kanazawa Station’s iconic Tsuzumi gate, often selected as one of the world’s most beautiful train stations.
The guest room floors (2nd to 12th floors) are designed with traditional colours and patterns so that guests can stay at the hotel while enjoying Kanazawa’s traditional culture. The lobby floor is a space designed by Shirae in collaboration with sculptor Yoshimasa Tsuchiya. The entire hotel is designed in such a way as to help guests experience Kanazawa’s traditional culture and future.
Guests will be greeted with heartfelt ‘omotenashi’ (Japanese-style hospitality) during their stay.
The hotel puts a special focus on ‘food,’ which is one of the joys of travel. Try a special breakfast of ‘Hokurikuzukushi no Kamameshi Gozen’, which consists of ‘kamameshi’ (rice in a pot) as a main dish containing ingredients that make one feel Kanazawa’s seasons such as blackthroat seaperch, crabs and bamboo shoots cooked with ‘Hyakumangoku’ (Kanazawa Prefecture’s original rice variety) in an iron pot, accompanied by a simmered dish or ‘obanzai’ using Kaga vegetables or ‘jiwamon’ (locally produced ingredients), as well as seasonal pickled vegetables and soup.
* The content of the breakfast may change depending on the procurement situation.
The appeal of Kanazawa
Kanazawa has gained popularity as a sightseeing destination as access from Tokyo improved following the opening of the Hokuriku Shinkansen Line. Kanazawa has both tradition, represented by old townscapes, Kenrokuen, one of the “Three Great Gardens of Japan,” Kanazawa Castle and so on, and modernity represented by the beautiful station building and the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art, Kanazawa. In Kanazawa, one can also enjoy experiencing Japanese culture, shopping, eating gourmet food and drinking sake (Japanese rice wine).
