Hot-spring heaven in the spa town of Unzen

The hotel in detail

Swiss chalet style meets the Arts and Crafts Movement. Unzen Kanko Hotel is a mix of styles resulting in a fascinating property full of integrity and charm. A welcoming atmosphere, a fabulous spa with hot spring baths, an award-winning restaurant and a laid-back ambiance makes this the latest, spa lover’s hotspot.

The cool summer temperatures at Unzen have attracted visitors from the cities to this region for years. The relaxed low-key approach at Unzen Kanko Hotel creates an air of serenity and calm with stained-glass windows, Tiffany lamps and dark wood beams inducing a sense of nostalgia. The recently renovated rooms with smart polished wood floors and William Morris wallpaper continue the theme.

Choose from a choice of three hot-spring baths in Unzen Kanko Hotel’s spa, the family bath, the sulphur-spring bath or the open-air bath. Then, lean back into a large, comfy armchair in the relaxation area and view the garden through the vast windows. Visit the ‘Hells’ or ‘Jigoku’ area to see numerous sulphurous and boiling hot springs, or take a hike through Japan’s oldest national park, Unzen-Amakusa, via Nita Pass to Mount Fugen for views of the lava flow from the 1990 eruption.
