Notice of the outer wall construction

Gion Shinmonso was founded in 1949. 36 years passed before the original 2-story wooden building updated to a reinforced concrete structure, in 1980.
Finally, in spring, 2002, construction work was commissioned for the exterior walls.

Gion Shinmonso is situated in an area placed designated a protected cultural area by Tokyo city. The design for the outer wall was therefore designed in order to blend into the historical background of its surroundings.

From January 16 to March 31, the outside will not be nearly visible as the exterior will be covered with tarps during the construction.I appreciate the planned works may be of great inconvenience; however, I present this information to you for the benefit of your understanding.
During the construction period, with the exception of one part of the schedule, the building will be open as usual for lodging, lunch, day trips, and parties. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require any further information or clarifications.
