Akakura Kanko Hotel
A spa and resort blessed by a cultivated tradition, beautiful views, and hot springs.

The Akakura Kanko Hotel, built in 1937 was the first of its kind as a Japanese highland resort. It was built by Kishichiro Okura, who also built the Kamikochi Imperial Hotel, the Kawana Hotel, and the Hotel Okura Tokyo. The hotel is located midway up Mt. Myoko at 1,000 m above sea level. Here you can enjoy a splendid, uninterrupted views of the area from the large hot spring bath, your room, or elsewhere inside the hotel. All guest rooms have been renovated, a new spa and outdoor bath with a continually flowing spring have been added, and in December 2016, a premium annex will open with a new restaurant and guest rooms. This is a relaxation resort evolved to offer a comfortable stay, in a historical and elegant space that has been preserved just as it was handed down.
