The Mitsukuri Hotel is named after the Dutch scholar Genpo Mitsukuri, who hails from Tsuyama. Genpo Mitsukuri was a remarkable scholar who played a significant role during Japan's opening to the world. He was tasked with translating a letter from the American President during Commodore Perry's arrival in 1853. Around the same time, when the Russian envoy Putyatin visited Japan, Genpo Mitsukuri was also dispatched as part of the negotiation team to Nagasaki. He made substantial contributions in various fields, including the translation of diplomatic documents and the study of international affairs, and is even credited with laying the foundation for the present-day University of Tokyo.

Our hotel is located near the existing ancestral home of Genpo Mitsukuri, in the Joto district designated as a national important traditional building preservation area. It stands in front of the Tsuyama Archives Of Western Learning and the Joto Old Townhouses. As you visit our hotel, you can immerse yourself in the ambiance of that era, allowing you to reflect on its history and heritage as if you've stepped back in time.
