Gora Kadan

Why We Love This Hotel :

History: This property is styled after a traditional Japanese ryokan, offering a glimpse into the heritage of Japanese hospitality. This particular ryokan was once the summer residence of the Imperial family.

Location: Located just outside Tokyo in Hakone, Gora Kadan is positioned amid hot springs and unspoiled forest, yet with easy access to the city.

Service: Guests can enjoy Japanese hospitality in a traditional setting, with English-speaking staff on hand to assist 24 hours a day.
