Oyama Afuri Shrine
closer to you.
A space of peace
filled with wishes.
"Saryo Sekison" is a tea house adjacent to Shimosha. The name "Saryo Sekison" comes from the fact that a large natural stone, the sacred body of the Oyama Afuri Shrine, has been affectionately called "Sekison-sama" by people. We hope that "Saryo Sekison" will be a space that will be loved by people, just like Oyama Afuri Shrine, a place where people's wishes have been heard. "Saryo Sekison" is a place where such a wish is expressed. There is a terrace where you can relax while enjoying the spectacular view, table seating with a relaxed atmosphere, and atmospheric tatami room seating where you can feel the sacred atmosphere. Please enjoy the coffee brewed with the sacred water at each seat and savor this space to your heart's content.
You can see as far
as Sagami Bay,
the Boso Peninsula,
and Izu Oshima Island.
The view from Oyama Afuri Shrine was introduced as 2 stars in the revised 4th edition of the Michelin Green Guide Japan (French edition). The view can be enjoyed from the terrace and inside the house. If the weather is fine, you can enjoy a spectacular view of not only Sagami Bay, but also the Boso Peninsula and Izu Oshima Island.

The building was designed by Yasushi Horibe, one of the leading architects in contemporary Japanese architecture. Construction was done by Yukio Uchida (Uchida Koumuten), a shrine carpenter with experience in restoring important cultural properties in Japan. The skillful composition expressing history and the future has created a tasteful space that gives comfort to people's hearts.
There are terrace seats with a spectacular view, table seats, and tatami room seats at the far end of the house. The open space creates a sense of generosity and at the same time connects the view from the tatami room seats to the terrace seats.
Originally used as a reception room for the guest rooms of the Shimosha, it is constructed with transom and shoji screens. The walls and ceiling are made of rough cedar planks painted with persimmon tannin. The tables and chairs are also carefully selected, with chairs by Hans J. Wegner of Denmark.
