Gôra Kadan, Hakone and Mount Fuji

Feel like a Japanese Imperial Family as you stay at the former retreat of the Kanin-no-miya, Yamato Dynasty, Gora Kadan whilst enjoying the breathtaking views of Hakone National Park.

The sublime Gora Kadan is situated in the striking Hakone National Park. The former retreat of the Kanin-no-miya imperial family, the Gora Kadan is elegantly designed with tatami-style rooms, sliding-doors and futons overlooking a green valley of pine trees and celebrated cherry trees.  

A mesmerising mixture of traditional and modern, the Gora Kadan offers the very best of Japanese hospitality and an authentic experience. Slip into your kimono and explore the grounds, then feel the 21st century melt away as you relax in the tranquil Onsen amongst the trees and bamboo forests, or have all of your cares smoothed away with a traditional Shiatsu massage.
