Tokiwa hotel has been honored to serve several generations of the Imperial family, foreign nobility,
esteemed artists and writers, and other well-known domestic and foreign guests as Kofu’s premier VIP guesthouse.
The hotel is located in the Yumura hot spring area in Yamanashi Prefecture, with a history of 1,000 years, and
the area known as a hidden hot spring of Shingen Takeda, a warlord of the 16th century.
The hotel is built around a classic garden that has been ranked 3rd nationally, and it is spacious - with 50 rooms,
it is built on grounds of over 33,000 sq m (350,000 sq ft), and the garden itself is about 9,900 sq m (107,000 sq ft).
The common hot spring baths also have outdoor pools, and a garden view. Traditional wooden cottages,
with tatami mat rooms and of refined Japanese architecture, surround the garden. Each of these has attached
private gardens with uniquely crafted outdoor hot spring baths.
