Ozawa Pavilion


The Ozawa Pavilion is a unique and memorable venue for groups of 20 seated or up to 40 for stand-up style receptions. Overlooking the beautiful Kurimoto Japanese Garden, the Ozawa Pavilion combines traditional Japanese design and materials with modern innovation, and can be best described as a guesthouse with a tea room. A traditional Japanese-style table seating up to 20 guests rises out of the tatami floor (woven grass) in the main meeting room, with full views of the Kurimoto Japanese Garden through sliding rice paper doors and windows (shoji). An additional six guests can be seated in an adjoining foyer. Amenities include a fully equipped modern kitchen area. The Ozawa Pavilion can be rented alone, or in combination with the adjacent Ikoi no ba annex (joined by a rear deck), which has a capacity of 16 (seated) to 30 (standing) guests. The Ozawa Pavilion is also an ideal location for corporate meetings and retreats.

  • All footwear must be removed at the door. Bare feet are not permitted on the tatami mats. (Clean socks are provided.)
  • All décor must be approved in advance – no tacks, tape or any other items can be affixed to the walls or ceiling.
