Luxury Holidays At Gora Kadan

A member of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux group, Gora Kadan is a charming ryokan that blends traditional Japanese charm with modern conveniences and amenities.

The restaurant, Kaiseki Kadan, serves authentic and delicious Japanese cuisine with a focus both on taste and creative presentation. The Gora Spa offers a range of locally-inspired treatments, while an indoor pool, Jacuzzi and fitness facilities continue the sense of rejuvenation and wellness.
