Atami Tourism Association
Feb. 14, 2024
Kiunkaku Kiunkaku is based on a famous residence built as a villa in 1919 (Taisho 8) and praised as "Atami's Three Great Villas". In 1947 (1947 (Showa 22)), it was reborn as a ryokan, and as a representative lodging of Atami, it has welcomed many guests for lodging nights, and has been loved by Japan's leading literary figures such as Yuzo Yamamoto, Naoya Shiga, Junichiro Tanizaki, Osamu Dazai, Seiichi Funahashi, and Taijun Takeda. It is currently open to the public as a cultural property of Atami City. A lush garden that doesn't look like an urban area. Away from the main building (Japanese-style) that preserves the beauty of Japanese houses. A Western-style building with a unique atmosphere that fuses Japanese, Chinese, European, and other decorations and styles. These exquisite and elegant properties will be passed on to future generations as a historical and cultural heritage. Please take a look.

Went to Hachioji over the weekend and had a blast exploring the area. We were able to check out the Musashi Imperial Mausoleum (Emperor Taisho and Emperor Showa's Burial Sites), eat some amazing food at a restaurant called "Gonsuke" (ごん助) and a bunch of other stuff. The Musashi Imperial Mausoleum was really amazing, it reminded me a lot of Meiji Jingu Shrine with the wide gravel paths through the forest, although I have a feeling this forest is natural and not man-made. Also the burial mounds seemed really traditional and reminded me of the burial mounds from the Kofun Period. The restaurant Gonsuke was so incredible. They had all sorts of different course menus and it was my first time trying boar meat too lol. I haven't had game meat in a long time so it was really cool getting to try it again and cook it over an irori (I think it's an irori) with actual coals. Can't wait to go back and explore the area again more. I'd love to hike up Mt. Takao and see everything else the area has to offer. Beautiful city
