Shiroiya Hotel is considered an art destination for locals to gain civic pride and travellers to enjoy the works of art in a relaxed atmosphere. The property is filled with works by internationally acclaimed artists and also local artists. The restaurants are particular about serving local ingredients and present innovative cuisine.
Achievements : SHIROIYA HOTEL is designed by leading Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto to become the landmark of the city. It is one of his approaches to the challenge of how to create a new essential urban space. With its rough concrete exterior, the Heritage Tower preserves the old look of the former Shiroiya Ryokan (inn) while also housing a boldly designed atrium. The Green Tower, on the other hand, boasts a design inspired by the former river banks of the city in-line with Maebashi Cityâ€™s new slogan for the future, â€œWhere Good Things Grow.â€ The two towers combined act as a â€œliving roomâ€ of the city, a place where local residents and travelers gather and interact. To complete this image of the hotel, Fujimoto guided the overall design and interior, while further collaborating with various designers and artists and also incorporating abundant green inside and outside of the hotel. The hotel project began with an ambition to revitalize the city of Maebashi.
