- KAI Tsugaru
Hoshino Resorts KAI Tsugaru, located in the Owani hot springs of the Tsugaru region in Aomori Prefecture, underwent renovations of the public areas and guest rooms and reopened on April 1st, 2019. The new KAI Tsugaru features the theme of “Tsugaru Seasonal Water Garden”. All guest rooms were converted to KAI Signature Rooms based on the traditional craft of Tsugaru koginzashi needlework.
At KAI Tsugaru’s famous pond, Tsugaru koginzashi lanterns are decorated and lighted in summer to create a surreal nightscape. Tsugaru koginzashi needlework is a traditional quilting pattern in Tsugaru. At KAI Tsugaru, the new “Tsugaru Seasonal Water Garden” and the corridors provide guests a closer relationship with the local culture and artwork of Tsugaru of each season.
Four Main Features

In addition to the Tsugaru kogin lanterns, guests can touch other artworks like Tsugaru vidro, glassware
