Most people visit Japan to experience its beautiful four seasons and to try its mouthwatering local treats, but actually Japan is more than those two things. In Japan, you can enjoy a luxury and relaxing stay experience at resort hotels.

There are a lot of famous resort hotels in Japan, and today we introduce “Hoshino Resorts KAI Enshu”, a popular resort hotel managed by Hoshino Resort Co., Ltd.

Hoshino resorts KAI Enshu is a hotel located in Kanzanji, a hot spring city in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka.

Every KAI hotel offers a selection of unique activities designed to introduce guests to Japan’s regional cultures.

At KAI Enshu, which is located in Shizuoka – the green tea capital of Japan – free tea tastings “Birakucha (美楽茶)” are held at the hotel,
so that guests can have a chance to explore the wonders of Shizuoka teas.

Held for 6 times a day from 15:20 every day, you can join this experience by registering yourself at the front desk during check-in.
