This is the entrance of the hotel. The design was the traditional pattern of the indigenous people of Hokkaido Ainu.
Each family of Ainu has their own pattern of textile. The doors were colored with gold and brown. They made an exotic contrast with the black openwork.
Many wood carvings were displayed in the hotel. Above is the sculpture of Ezo Blakiston's fish-owl half-opening the wings. I am not sure the cost of those carvings but they were the "must" to create this space with atmosphere.
