Owners of Umeya

We are the couple from Tokyo and Taiwan who,
met in Kyoto.
We love Kyoto so much!
That's why we decided to run Umeya
in this memorial place.
Hope we become the bridge
between Japan and Taiwan.
Also hope we and everyone enjoy sharing
our time with friends from all over the world!

Why we named here "Umeya"?

the reason named as Umeya

Ume (梅) means plum blossom,
Ya (夜) means night.
All together, Umeya (梅夜) litterally means
plum blossoms at night or
a night with plum blossoms.
Ancient Chinese poems give us inspiration
to this name and scene,
which depits an image of people
relaxing and talking under plum trees
full of blossoms with the moon
tranquilly shining above.
This is the place we'd like to create.
In addition, Umeya happens to locate near the Kitano-tenmangu Shrine
where plum blossoms are famous.
Another reason is that Taiwan's national flower is plum blossom.

We'd like to invite travelers to create
their own scenes of Umeya 梅夜 and to relax and enjoy their special time in Umeya.
