Takeshi Kaminaka
It is a small hotel of the homey atmosphere. However, the traditional inn, style of Japan is space not to be able to taste in the others. There is a Japanese traditional Japanese garden in spite of a location of a 3-minute walk from the station. The meal provides a traditional Kaiseki meal served . The traditional Japanese music supports all the staff, and it comes above all. Japanese dance, samisen, hand drum, instructor, Natori gathers three. I can experience Japanese traditional music. Please come to the memory of the trip♪
Ryokan Kaminaka is only the Japanese staff liking being traditional. I am a chef of the Japanese food. And it is an instructor of the traditional arts Japanese dance of Japan.
