Kotohira Kadan is a traditional ryokan with 400 years of history. It is situated in the midst of a beautiful Japanese style garden. The hotel is renowned for its heartfelt service and atmosphere. The names of distinguished writers of the past such as Ogai Mori, Hakushu Kitahara, and Akiko Yosano have been registered in the hotel book. The big baths command a fine view of Mt. Sanuki-Fuji and Kotohira town. Kotohira has developed and flourished as a shrine town at the gates of Kotohira-gu shrine. Feel and experience the soul of Japan at Kotohira Kadan. Kotohira Kadan offers a broad selection of accommodations to meet the needs of our guests. Some rooms overlook the town of Kotohira and others look out on the Japanese garden. Also, guests can have a unique experience in our traditional Sukiya-zukuri Japanese houses. The Konpira Spa is located in Kotohira Town. The town is famous for Kotohira-gu Shrine and Konpira Kabuki (Kabuki is a form of Japanese theater in which elaborately costumed male performers use stylized movements, dances, and songs in order to enact tragedies and comedies). The water of this hot spring is rich in calcium and sodium, which makes it gentle to the skin and is said to have a beautifying effect for the skin. The onsen water is good for the relief and/or treatment of neuralgia, muscle pain, articular pain, frozen shoulder, sprains, fatigue and overall health.

A beautiful suite features a big 18-mat tatami room, and an entire wall of windows overlooking the town and tile roofed villas. Inside the rooms are like a step back in time to the Taisho era and before, including period paintings on the fusuma sliding doors, hanging scrolls, and traditional household items like shodo (calligraphy) and chado (tea ceremony) boxes. The bath is equally spacious, and sports a carved wood roof, thai spa, garden lounge.
