The reason why we host the program LAiR.

We think LINNAS is not a hotel, but a micro complex in the town. As a micro complex, we would like to make this place a HUB between locals and people from outside of the town. We believe that art is one way to make diversities in our community.

Also as a hotel, we have a concept of “Hygge”, which is the Danish word of meaning “comfortable time / space”. We believe that for the comfortable time/space, having artwork in the room is the key for Hygge.

We would like our guests staying with us experiencing “a life with art” through the stay at LINNAS Kanazawa.

For the past 2 years, we only have artists from Japan, but from this time, we would like to welcome artists from all over the world.
