Kansuiro Ryokan has been loved by many artists and politicians from within Japan and elsewhere. Its heritage was established by guests such as the imperial princess Kazunomiya, Lady Tensho-in, the first prime minister Hirobumi Ito, as well as the great writers Soseki Netsume and Toson Shimazaki and so on. You can experience the romantic atmosphere of the early 20th century by being surrounded with the treasures found throughout the hotel.
The building of Kansuiro Ryokan was constructed with a wooden high-tower structure which is rarely seen in Japan.The building is designated as a Cultural Property of Japan.
Kansuiro Ryokan is famous for its architecture of a four-story wooden high-rise construction, and many architects and artisans come to admire its structural technique. Especially the banquet halls are contructed with the structure called “So-Motase”, which doesn’t have a central pillar, using the special Jindai cedar tree.
Our open-air baths are situated on a hillside where you will be surrounded by the beautiful scenery of Hayakawa river, Mt. Hakone and the mountains nearby. This scenery changes dramatically with the flow of the seasons. We are fortunate to have access to fresh and good quality fish from the Sagami-Bay area and vegetables from the mountains of Hakone.
