Nature and traditional beauty.
Relaxing lounge full of graceful Japanese designs.

The “Shiun” (purple clouds) chandeliers hung from the ceiling of the atrium.
The elegant and splendid lounge reminds you of the Heian period.
The Japanese garden has a forest of Japanese Torreya on the right and bamboo thickets on the left, making you feel like you are deep in the mountains.
There is also a two-leveled waterfall splashing, creating a wonderful contrast between “stillness” and “dynamism.”

 The ethereal main lounge of RIHGA Royal Hotel Osaka makes you feel like you are lost in a picture scroll. The water corridor flows through the lounge to the waterfall in the Japanese garden like a babbling brook. The green carpet on the floor is blended with the garden’s greenery, creating a sense of unity.

 Sitting on the floral sofa in the lounge, you can see the chandelier made of approximately 250,000 crystal glass rods made by artist Tada Minami glimmering above your head. Standing proudly next to you are graceful gold Maki-e pillars, and “The Tale of Genji” and other works of art adorn every corner of the lounge.

 Yoshida Isoya, a member of the Japan Art Academy, designed the lounge with the theme of “light, water, and greenery.” Spending time here will surely be a special moment of relaxation surrounded by nature, art, and traditional beauty.

Enjoy the Gorgeous Works of Art

The “Tale of Genji” on the wall was created by a Tosa School painter and depicts 12 of the 54 chapters of the Tale of Genji.
Other works of art, including masterpieces by Okamoto Shinso, Koiso Ryohei, Koide Narashige, and Noguchi Yataro, adorn every corner of the lounge.
