The word "ARU(means exists)" expresses the desire to be a
"hotel that will continue to exist in that place over time."
Sanjo Kiyamachi-dori, which originated in the timber wholesale district
along the Takase River and inherits the bustle of the Western wind
from Edo, Meiji and Taisho periods.
It inherits the universal values and romance that have been loved by people over the years.
A hotel that carefully inherits the history and traditions of this town,
also creates new values and culture, and a better future.
Since we choose "Mizuhiki" as our symbol, which has always been a symbol of "gratitude",
we wish a great joy for both the townspeople and travelers that hotel always "exist" on Kiyamachi-dori.
