Omotenashi - The heart of Japanese hospitality
The concept of omotenashi is deeply rooted in the cultural history of Japan. It represents the Japanese reputation of hospitality, service, politeness, and natural respect for a guest. It is a special one-to-one relationship that is created between a host and a guest.
A good example of omotenashi is a host who knows in advance the needs of his guest and caters to them before the guest expects it, making the guest feel that he is in good hands.
Omotenashi is also about caring about the small details, the Japanese way of loving the quality and order of things - the smallest of them, offering them with love to the guest who can enjoy the beauty around him.
