{gora kadan ryokan...}

I had a lovely sushi lunch with a colleague yesterday who is joining one of my walking trips in Japan. He has one night after the trip before going to Tokyo and I've suggested he spend it at the exquisite Gora Kadan Ryokan. Hakone may be a bit touristy, but this former residence of the Kan-In-No-Miya imperial family is very special...

  1. do you guide walking trips as well? I so envy your job!! let me know when B & R has some openings... :)

  2. This looks like heaven about now - wish I'd spent the weekend there! Hope yours was lovely x

  3. I'm totally bookmarking this for a future trip! I've always wanted to stay in a ryokan and this looks lovely.

  4. Wow, I'm already so in love with Japan. This is making me go head over heels! Look at that private bath! Cypress wood? Heavenly...
