With handwoven tatami floors, rooftop onsen baths, and only 10 rooms, this Japanese-inspired hotel offers an unexpected place of zen in Mexico City.
Just around the corner from one of Mexico City’s most iconic avenues lies a surprising respite of serenity modeled after Japan’s traditional countryside inns known as ‘ryokans.’
Wrapped in a sculptural facade inspired by the folds of origami, this unique property is Ryo Kan MX, a boutique hotel that has been billed as the “first ryokan in Latin America.”
With just 10 rooms, its simple yet elegant design is the work of architect Regina Galvanduque of GLVDK Studio, who fused elements of Japanese hospitality and style with Mexican materials and cutting-edge technology.
