eph Hotel Series

eph / iˈf / noun

A ‘culture-concept’ boutique hotel designed to embody a city’s individual culture and style. A space that elicits curiosity to keep you coming back for more.


The eph Effect

We’ve designed each of our eph boutique hotels to embody the distinct Japanese culture, and vibrant history that our cities are home to. Everything about our hotels have been shaped by the city and culture, and from the moment you step into our hotel, you will come to realize that your travel story has transformed into something more - an ‘only one’ kind of experience.

A boutique hotel that brings the city to our guests

Sleep within our stylishly designed suites, influenced by the zen rock gardens of Kyoto City, green mountain ranges surrounding Takayama City. Have a taste of our breakfast buffet, curated by our in-house chef, to bring the best of the city’s food-culture to your morning plate. In your room, you’ll find original amenities that have been created specifically with you, our eph guests, in mind. And when you decide to explore the city, you’ll see that our eph staff hold a wealth of information, just waiting to share everything with you.
