Maiko Chaya Hinagura Garo: hinazo*ro Somaro まいこちゃや ひなぐらがろう そうまろう
New World of Gorgeousness and Grace Comes to Life Again
Originally opened as one of the famous Japanese restaurants in Sakata during Edo-era, “Somaya” underwent renovation and reopened as “Somaro” in March, 2000.
Right after burnt down during 1894 Shonai Earthquake, its main building was rebuilt surrounding the remnant of storehouses and registered as national cultural asset in November, 1996.
Somaro came back to life again by adding new features through renovation: a room with 20 tatami mats was turned to be “Sabou Kutsurogidokoro” (tearoom) on the first floor; a hall on the second floor became a dining hall where you can enjoy not only dinner but also Maiko’s dance; and the kitchen is now used as practice room for Sakata Maiko.
Spare some time to take a look at Hiha-ningyo and aged fine arts displayed in the building, and also bijin-ga and photograghs of Yumeji Takehisa at Takehisa Yumeji Museum in the premise.
