The property of Hostel Kura used to be an exchange place for presious metals like gold, platinum and silver. The business of exchanging money to gold was strictly regulated by Japanese Government after the War.
The property was built modeled after European style small fortress around the beginning of Showa period and it consists of 3 functional areas; storehouse, actual exchange place, and processing factory.
We have rebuilt this historically important landmark and turned it into an old fashion Japanese style hostel in the center of Tokyo city. You will enjoy the mixture of traditional Japanese and European flavored residence experience with us.
