About karaksa hotel

karaksa hotel is a hotel brand that does its utmost to provide comfort and convenience for sightseers, with its seven hotels across Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, and Hokkaido located in busy downtown areas and near train stations for maximum accessibility. Each hotel's interior has a stylish, simple aesthetic infused with modern Japanese touches, ensuring a relaxing and enjoyable stay for guests.

What Is "karaksa"?

While “kusa” in Japanese normally means “grass,” the word “karakusa” isn’t actually a type of grass. Rather, it is a traditional Japanese motif consisting of intertwining plant stems that since long ago has been treasured as a symbol of growth, prosperity, and intangible bonds.

The brand logo of karaksa hotel combines this karakusa motif with the traditional Japanese “tomoe” (a shape that looks like swirling water) and “magatama” (another shape that looks like the letter C) designs to express growth and development, as well as partnerships and nobility of spirit. Their desire to build a hotel brand that’ll be loved across generations, as fresh and supple as the karakusa arabesque itself, fills every inch of it.

Spacious and Comfortable Guest Rooms

This means everyone can get ready for the day at a much faster speed than usual - maybe a father can take a shower while his wife gets ready at the sink and their child uses the toilet, for example. While the bathrooms at karaksa hotel don’t have tubs, some of the showers come with benches so that you can adjust the shower head to enjoy a rain or waterfall shower.
