10.July.2018 | SPOT

Kyukamura Oku-Musashi is one of 37 resorts in Japan managed by KYUKAMURA HOTELS. On July 10, the hotel will hold the grand opening of its new building, the Nishikawa Kan.

Since the hotel opening in July 2013, it has held a room occupancy rate of over 85. The new building is being opened to further promote the appeal of the region’s environment to people. Each room in the new building serves to bring nature closer to guests with concept rooms where they can enjoy the woodland, or rooms with an outdoor living area with a view of the trees.


The top floor is decked out with a telescope where you can enjoy starry sky parties. There will also be activities arranged to head out into nature, such as going to Koma River just 2-minutes’ walk away to enjoy the clear streams, go to the cafe or get involved in cast net fishing. The hotel is an indoor establishment that invites its guest outside. Prices range from ¥14,500 (1 night 2 meals) at the Nishikawa Kan.
