Our worldview derives from the spirit of hospitality and aesthetically refined “dandyism”
that were set forth by our founder, John Kanaya.
The Kinugawa Kanaya Hotel is a place where guests can converse to their heart’s content
with friends and loved ones as they luxuriate in the natural beauty produced
by the free-flowing Kinugawa River and the rugged valley.
Comfort that applies a brilliant flair to the everyday and our modern,
refined atmosphere and service speak to the fact that our hotel is truly a “Villa in the Valley.”
Our roots extend back to being the oldest resort hotel in Japan.
Through our atmosphere, service, and cuisine
that achieve a splendid fusion of East and West
and the traditional and modern,
we promise that the time you spend here
will leave you absolutely delighted in any day and age.
Our hotel offers service befitting resort elegance
that soothes the body and soul
through hospitality that comes from the heart.
We promise an unforgettable stay
that will bring you closer to nature through furnishings
that offer a uniquely Japanese sense of the four seasons.
Carefully selected seasonal, local ingredients make for dishes
that provide indulgence course by course.
Our hotel offers a luxuriant dining experience
that is rooted in traditional Kaiseki cuisine
while also incorporating Western influences.
