hotel aiaoi | english

Since we have moved to Kamakura, our perspective on moments we feel important or things we choose have changed.
Sometimes we take 30 minutes just to buy fish because the conversation keeps flowing with fishermen
Now we feel it is very important to spend everyday like this.
Even when we get chills in an old housing, we think its only natural to feel that way in winter.
We just have to wear something warmer. 
We feel that it is the true meaning of being rich; to be able to spare time to feel the seasons and the nature.

Our hotel is the extension of our lives.
We would like to make your life little bit richer and more special after you go back to your routine. 

ai means Japanese colour ai and meet.
aoi means blue.

Kamakura is made out of colour or 
ai and aoi of the sky and the ocean.
We hope you come see yourself.

ACCOMMODATIONS

rooms







Total of 6 rooms available (Maximum 1 to 3 persons)
There are single, twin, double and lofted rooms with different design.
We will assign the best room for you. We will be more than happy to accommodate your request of the room. Please tell us at the time of reservation.
We use a lot of old resources or tools in your rooms. We have learned the joy to use things for longer time and the importance to live with nature through the experience of living in the house built 60 years ago.

We wanted to bring what we have experienced to this hotel to make it an extension of our lives.

We like the warmth of old things. We have taken care of the areas which may harm you or be dangerous to you, but of course, old things may not be as flat nor smooth as new things.Thank you for your understandings.

Breakfast

The breakfast is served on the long table at the cafe lounge. You can get nice morning sunlight at this time. You can choose the starting time from the choice of 8 am or 9 am.

  • Our breakfast starts with our original blended Kampo (herbal extract) tea blended by Kakuro Sugimoto who is the 3rd heir of Sugimoto Pharmacy in Kamakura Ofuna.
    The food is prepared with the seafood caught by the local fishermen of Sakanoshita (a minute from aiaoi). They bring the freshest seafood in a bucket directly here.
    Please know the ocean does not always provide what we want. There is, of course, a poor day.
  • The rice we cook is made by father of Yuko Komuro, it is pesticide-free and half-milled.Miso soup is made with miso nicely mixed with malted rice and wheat.
    The meal also comes with other home-cooked dishes such as Chawanmushi (steamed egg), vegetable dish or homemade nukazuke (pickles).
