- KAI Nagato
On March 12th, 2020, Hoshino Resorts opened “Hoshino Resorts KAI Nagato” (hereinafter “KAI Nagato”) at the Yumoto Onsen in Nagato, Yamaguchi Prefecture. In January 2016, the company was commissioned by the Nagato government to create the “Nagato Onsen Master Plan.” They then published the “Nagato Yumoto Onsen Tourism Revitalization Plan” based on this master plan in August 2016, and with the overarching concept of “a stroll through the onsen district,” they have been working with local community groups on projects to revitalize the onsen district, one of which is the creation of KAI Nagato.
KAI Nagato, the 16th property established under the KAI brand, lies at the base of Akebonobashi, a bridge that crosses the Otozuregawa River, which flows through the heart of Nagato Yumoto Onsen, a riverside onsen region surrounded by the mountains of northern Yamaguchi. With the theme of “Ochaya Yashiki,” which has existed in Yamaguchi Prefecture since antiquity, KAI Nagato will strive to create a resort where guests can fully experience the region’s rich culture. The lobby and guest rooms will have a style inspired by samurai culture, and the KAI Cultural Discovery (a selection of free activities designed to introduce guests to Japan’s regional cultures) will offer Akama inkstones made from the red clay that is characteristic to this area.
