Machiya Inn Cuisine

Meal Service Overview

Showcasing Local Cuisine

Machiya Inn began as an outgrowth of a local community project, so we are aware and very supportive of our local area merchants, artisans and restaurateurs. Hence, rather than providing full in-house meal services, we offer a meal service system for our guests via partnership with some of the best local cuisine establishments nearby.

When reserving a room online, you will see various meal options that correspond with our partnered local meal providers.

We can also accommodate dietary restricitons questions or requests if you make sure to tell us in advance, either when reserving, or via email to info@omi-machiyainn.com.

Kolmio hotel, cafe, interior

The Kolmio Café and gallery shop are in the 100-year old machiya building adjacent to our Annex Komio suite rooms. The facade of the building fits right into the traditional buildings and storefronts of this historic district, yet the interior offers a more modern and stylish atmosphere. The café and restaurant area offer meals and sweets made from fresh local ingredients for your enjoyment, while the gallery shop showcases a unique collection of select goods and works from local artists. Breakfast service from the café is also available for guests staying at our facilities (advance reservation required). The accommodation area of the facility, Annex Kolmio, is managed by Machiya Inn Omihachiman.
