Make your next corporate meeting, strategic planning session or team retreat a memorable and inspiring experience in the Ozawa Pavilion Teahouse.

Overlooking the renowned Kurimoto Japanese Garden, the Ozawa Pavilion combines traditional Japanese design and materials with modern innovation, and can be best described as a guesthouse with a tea room.

A traditional Japanese-style table seating up to 20 guests rises out of the tatami floor (woven grass) in the main meeting room, with full views of the Kurimoto Japanese Garden through sliding rice paper doors and windows (shoji). An additional six guests can be seated in an adjoining foyer. Amenities include a fully equipped modern kitchen area, washrooms and shower facilities.

The Ozawa Pavilion can be rented alone, or in combination with the adjacent Ikoi no ba, (joined by a rear deck), which has a capacity of 16 (seated) to 30 (standing) guests. 

The Ozawa Pavilion is also ideal for special occasion gatherings, receptions, and overnight stays for two.

  • Admission to the Garden and free parking for all your guests
  • Access to the Kurimoto Japanese Garden (exclusive access for overnight stays and functions outside of regular garden hours)
  • Fully equipped kitchen
  • Coffee and tea supplies
