Toraya Confectionery was founded in the early 16th century in Kyoto, but with the move of the imperial family to Tokyo in 1868, the headquarters of the company followed suit. Hiroshi Naito, a specialist in intrinsic wood structures, redesigned the old store opposite the Kyoto Gyoen National Garden. His expertise shows in the curved ceiling of tearoom, and his open design lets the garden optically flow into the building.
