One of the most appealing points of the KAI ryokans, besides their luxurious onsen, is their interior, which incorporates natural and traditional aspects of the surrounding area. For example, at KAI Hakone, customers can admire traditional Japanese marquetry called yosegi-zaiku, with cups and bowls displayed in almost every corner of the building, including the lounge and cafe.
They even have an extraordinary room called “KAI Signature room” (*2), with yosegi-zaiku style furniture made by local artisans. By staying at Hoshino Resorts KAI, you will have the wonderful opportunity to experience the local traditions of the area firsthand.

Exemplary dishes served at KAI Atami.
The food offered at Hoshino Resorts KAI also reflects the very essence of the local area; each dish is made with local products, showing off the assets and blessings of that region to their fullest. A great example of this is the food served at KAI Atami, where the guests at the ryokan can savor a kaiseki-style supper. The meal is made from fresh vegetables and fish from Atami and the neighboring city of Izu. This way, the ryokan can further provide their guests with the authentic seaside atmosphere that Atami is known for.
