Hotel Elcient Osaka will open in Sonezaki, Osaka, on August 1, 2020. It is accessible directly from KIX Airport to JR Osaka Station, which is within walking distance. In addition, it has great access to Kyoto, Nara, Kobe and Wakayama, making it an ideal location for visiting UNESCO World Heritage sites and tourist attractions. The Sonezaki area is famous as a vibrant “gourmet town” that symbolizes Osaka where local foodies come to eat.
There are diverse sightseeing and entertainment places to enjoy the perfect mixture of modern pop culture and ancient spirituality. Experience traditional performing arts such as Ningyo Joruri, Rakugo, Kabuki and Noh.
Upon leaving the hotel, guests will find Tsuyu no Tenjinjya or Ohatsutenjin, a very popular spiritual spot that has a history of over 1,300 years. Tsuyu no Tenjinjya is the stage of “Sonezaki Shinju (Double Suicide of Sonezaki),” a representative pure love story (true story), which has been continuing since the Edo period. Guests can rejuvenate their mind and body at the shrine.
All experiences here will satisfy the senses and keep guests entertained, prompting them to want more.
