Ryokan The Kayotei is located in the small hot springs village of Yamanaka, in Ishikawa prefecture. The inn is surrounded by majestic trees and lovingly nurtured gardens encircled by thickly forested hills. Inside, original painted screens, fine works of pottery and antique “tansu” (old Japanese chests) adorn the hallways and the common spaces. Kayotei’s 10 suite rooms are arranged in the traditional Sukiya style, the architectural space designed for a tea ceremony. The Higashiyama Rooms have expansive views of Kayotei’s own forests and mountains and feature a tatami room in pure Japanese style. The Japanese Suites are designed in the Sukiya style of residential architecture that has its origins in the 17th century housing of Japan’s aristocracy and affluent classes and feature balconies to enjoy the view of the pristine mountains.

Always open and with only ten guest rooms at this ryokan , this experience may well be all your own.

Kokin Salon Bar

Upon arrival at Kayotei make your first stop the kokin salon bar for a relaxing cup of complimentary herb tea, locally grown in the mountains and valleys surrounding the Yamanaka onsen region. A cup of soothing tea while soaking in the view from the kokin salon balcony is just the beginning of the Kayotei experience.
