Hotel Facilities & Highlights


The Hot spring at Kinugawa Onsen was discovered in 1691. At the time, the land belonged to Nikko Shrine, and thus could only be used by feudal lords or monks on pilgrimage to Nikko. The spring is classified as alkaline hot spring; its odorless waters are gentle to sensitive skin.


Kanaya offers classic Japanese cuisine, based on the traditions of kaiseki dining combined with some Western elements. The menu changes monthly and features locally sourced seasonal ingredients. You have your choice between the two menus for dinner upon advance request.


Your Host & The Team


“I grew up watching my grandfather, Senji John Kanaya, bustling about and putting his life’s work into modernising Japan’s hotel industry. Even now, I cannot forget the year 1977 when he passed away, just before the opening of our hotel. Inspired by his vision, I continue his legacy to evoke traditional Japanese hospitality with Western comforts to my guests.”

“The first hotel to combine a classic ryokan (traditional Japanese inn) with occidental comfort, and paying tribute to the owner’s grandfather’s love for whiskey, cigars and chocolate, each of the 40 rooms has its own onsen (hot spring bath).”

Kim, the discoverer.
