What is KAI?

What is KAI?

Japan’s hidden luxuries—at your fingertips

KAI is a leading brand of luxury boutique hot spring ryokans. Every establishment offers a contemporary take on the traditional Japanese inn, providing unique, location-specific experiences—from exclusive activities to specialty suites—designed to immerse guests in the lavish world of Japanese regional craftsmanship.

Rooms

The spacious rooms are designed in classic Japanese style and feature both a bedroom and living room. In-room baths made of ancient cypress are fed by the Ito Hot Spring; in many rooms, they overlook a Japanese garden that blooms with flowers all year round.

KAI Signature Rooms

KAI Signature Rooms incorporate elements of regional craft cultures in their design. At KAI Ito, the "Izu Flower Calendar" rooms are designed to express the flowers of the region's four distinct seasons. Guests can experience the rich natural beauty that changes throughout the year from the comfort of their room.

Hot spring

Outdoor pool

This outdoor pool is situated beside a Japanese garden and is heated year round to ideal temperatures with waters from Ito Hot Spring, and it is possible to enter in a bathing suit.

Yuagari Lounge

Guests are invited to relax here after a long soak in Ito Hot Spring's fabled waters. Complimentary locally sourced teas and other regional beverages are offered.

Massages

KAI Activities

Every KAI establishment offers a selection of free activities designed to introduce guests to Japan's regional cultures. At KAI Ito, activities revolve around the camellia, which covers vast swaths of the local area when in season. Guests will get to try their hand at making oil from camellia seeds.
