Brunnen, Switzerland
Reviewed 14 October 2012

We stayed in this nice, small hotel with an excellent service and enjoyed the quietness and the excellent Japanese courtesy. The personnel was very attentive and tried to fullfil all our wishes to the best of their ability. The rooms were nicely furnished and the bathroom was very large showing on the trees of a beautiful park.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Chourakukan The Chourakukan was built in 1909 as a State Guesthouse for foreign dignitaries and for important politicians of the Japanese Government. The owner of the building was originally a Mr. Murai Kichibei who was known as the "King of Cigarettes" in the Meiji Era where he established a near monopoly on the distribution of the Tobacco trade in Japan before the Meiji government started to regulate the trade. He started importing tobacco leaves from the United States and helped spread the use of cigarettes throughout Japan. Prior to this Japanese people used to only smoke pipes, changing tobacco leaves each time they finished. In the Meiji Restoration period, people sought to improve their lifestyles, and Murai's American style cigarettes became very popular and were welcomed particularly by young people. Chourakukan now owns French and Italian restaurants, coffee shop and small luxuary hotel. ... more   less
