The interior design of the Hotel Japonès Puigpinós uses wood, a very important material in Japan, since 70% of its area is forest. And it is combined with stone and a whole set of restored materials that were part of the old farmhouse. The essence is not lost, we recover its value.
TATAMI AND FUTON
Some of the hotel rooms have tatami, a very characteristic element of Japanese houses, used in the past to cover the entire floor of the most important rooms. It is a floor made of rice straw. These rooms also have a futon, a traditional Japanese bed consisting of a mattress and mattress cover joined together and flexible enough to be stored away during the day to allow for other uses in the room.
All hotel rooms are equipped with a washlet, an electronic bidet widely used in Japanese washrooms, with the function of a water-spray toilet for cleaning the private parts of the body.
YUKATA, CUSHIONS AND NOREN
The yukata is a traditional Japanese garment made of cotton with personalised hotel details that we make available to guests. The yukata are made with 100% cotton Japanese fabric and of good quality by Noriko, a Japanese dressmaker who lives in Barcelona. The colours used are blue and red, for men and women, respectively, as they are the symbolic colours of Japan. Noriko also makes the pillowcases and noren of the hotel with Japanese fabric.
We have zori, Japanese flat sandals with straps made of rice straw for in-room wear. In Japan, it is typical not to wear shoes indoors because they are clean spaces.
NATURE, COLOURS AND SEASONS
We place a lot of importance on nature, colours and seasons in the same way as in Japan. Each room is named after natural elements in Japanese: water (mizu), stone (ishi), wind (kaze)and seasons (haru, natsu, aki, fuyu). We tried to find those elements in common between Catalan and Japanese culture in the rural and natural environment.
We offer different types of relaxing and decontracting massages inspired by Japanese culture, which are offered in the guest’s room. It requires prior reservation and confirmation from the hotel.
