Tokiwa Hotel History
Tokiwa Hotel was established in 1929, and the hot spring introduced in 1934.
We are an inaugural member of the Japan Ryokan Association, and were the 6th hotel registered
as an international tourist ryokan with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.
Over the years, we have been honored to serve several generations of the Imperial family, foreign
nobility, esteemed artists and writers, and other well known domestic and foreign guests.
Our main building was rebuilt in a modern Japanese style in 1992, and the Japanese garden ranked
#3 nationally in 2012 and 2013.?The representative director, Kenji Sasamoto is the grandson of the
founder, and he is honored to carry on the Tokiwa tradition of hospitality.
