～ The Gifts of Kuma-Hitoyoshi ～
★Selected by “Okami”★
Hitoyoshi has flourished as a castle town since Mr. Sagara started to govern, for 700 years, and because of its long history, dressing Kimono suites this town. There are many Japanese items matched Kimono that Okami has purchased in the old store in Kyoto “Izawa-Ya.” (In fact, nowhere but Ayuno-sato among whole Kyushu deals the products of Izawa-Ya! ) Additionally, we have other plenty of selected goods by Okami.
★Selected by “Waka-danna”★
Waka-danna had made travels to train himself at hotels all over Japan. Now that he has an official qualification as a guide of Kuma-Shochu, he has selected “tsumami (a kind of hors d’oeuvre or snack eaten while drinking)” that those who love drinking must prefer from every parts of the nation. Also, some of them have been introduced on TV programs before.
★Selected by “Waka-Okami”★
Waka-Okami is very fond of cute imported goods and purchases things she recognized “cute” in tuition without any reasons. Although it seems hard to be associated her preferences with In-house store (gift shop) in Japanese-style hotel, we hope that guests enjoy her own unique world in the Waka-Okami section.
