Gora Kadan, Hakone, Japan
This former retreat
of the Imperial Family in the heart of Hakone National Park, now a chic
Japanese ryokan (guest house), will completely immerse you into the ancient Japanese
way of life.
All 37 rooms (grand in size, minimalist in design and serene in lighting)
come with unique en-suite bathrooms, seven of which feature private rotenburo
outdoor baths; and don’t miss the traditional Kaiseki-style cuisine.
