Hakone Kowakien Ten-yu opens
Leading Japanese hospitality company Fujita Kanko Inc. has announced the opening of Hakone Kowakien Ten-yu, the newest addition to its resort portfolio in Hakone, Japan, a popular hot spring (onsen) destination near Mount Fuji.
Ten-yu is an upscale onsen resort blending the best of East and West: traditional ambiance and modern convenience with tranquil serenity and varied activities. The resort’s most unique feature is that all 150 Japanese-style rooms have private open-air hot spring baths overlooking the breathtaking scenery.
The décor combines Japanese aesthetics with stylish simplicity. Each of six Japanese suites was uniquely designed with a special theme. The suites also offer in-room dining.
The resort facilities include a spa, a restaurant and bar/lounge and two large hot spring facilities, one of which has an open-air Infinity bath. Built on Fujita Kanko’s Hakone Kowakien resort complex, guests also have access to other dining and leisure facilities, including Soba Kihinkan, a Japanese soba noodle restaurant; Teppanyaki Geihinkan, a high-end Japanese steakhouse; Hakone Kowakien Yunessun, a hot spring-themed amusement park; and Horaien Park, a renowned botanical garden. Kihinkan and Geihinkan occupy cultural heritage buildings recognized for their beautiful architecture.
To maximise guest experience, Ten-yu also set up a concierge team to fully meet the needs of its international guests and help them enjoy the area. Working with local experts, it can arrange local activities such as arts & crafts, sports and cultural experiences.
