Rediscovering the charm at a local hot spring inn, a safe trip- “Spring micro tourism”

2021.03.18

Hoshino Resorts’ small-scale hot spring inns “Kai Anjin,” “Kai Ito,” and “Kai Enshu,” located in Shizuoka Prefecture, are promoting “micro tourism” as a way of traveling during the With Corona period.

In contrast to “travel” that imagines a distant place or overseas, “micro tourism” that visits within a short distance allows you to feel attachment and find new favorites by touching the goodness of the land again, which has never been seen before. You can enjoy a journey full of awareness.

3 Stay at a safe hot spring inn where dense avoidance and hygiene management are thoroughly carried out, through a kaiseki meal using ingredients familiar to the locals, and hospitality such as “local music” held at each facility every day , You can spend a day rediscovering your hometown. In addition, in order to promote casual use, we will also sell a “local limited plan” limited to Shizuoka citizens and a “single hot spring rest plan” that will make your stay alive.

Matsukawa, one of the eight scenic spots of Izu, flows right next to KAI Anjin, and in the spring you can enjoy the cherry blossoms that bloom along the river while listening to the murmuring. In addition, the area near the mouth of the river is said to have been built by the British navigator Anjin Miura, who is the origin of the facility name, in Japan’s first Western-style sailing ship.

Special Kaiseki “Bouillabaisse of spiny lobster and red sea bream”

Izu area with abundant seafood. KAI Anjin offers a bouillabaisse for special spring banquet dishes. Ingredients include spiny lobster, red sea bream, and clams. It is a dish that allows you to fully enjoy the taste of soup stock and the taste of fish.

2. Local music “Blue-eyed samurai travelogue”

An English navigator, William Adams, who built Japan’s first Western-style sailing ship in Ito, known as the “blue-eyed samurai.” KAI Anjin performs a short movie “Blue-eyed Samurai Journey” every day, which conveys the era of the needles and the wisdom of navigation at that time.

You can listen to the romantic stories such as how the needles came to Japan and the shipbuilding of the “San Buena Ventura”, and you can think of the distant countries and the old days.

3. Local room “Adams Minato no Ma”

All 45 rooms have ocean views. Each room is decorated with artwork related to the ship. The artwork that incorporates the rudders and paddles that were once used in voyages arouses the romance of voyages. You can spend time while looking at the ocean in front of you.

4. One dish of kaiseki cuisine, “Menchi-katsu Nanbanzuke”

We have transformed the locally popular “Menchi-katsu” into a figure suitable for kaiseki cuisine. We added grated long thighs to chopped sardines and surimi to make it softer. After frying in oil, you can enjoy the sweet and sour flavor by soaking it in a special Nanbanji (sweet and sour sauce) with flavored vegetables. It is a dish that you can enjoy the charm of the new “Menchi-katsu”, which is well-soaked in Nanban.

Kai Ito highlights

2. Local music “Tsubaki oil making”

In the Ito area, which has a warm climate and is suitable for growing camellias, you can enjoy many camellia flowers in winter. Camellia oil squeezed from the seeds of camellia has been popular for food and medicinal purposes, and for hair and skin care since the Edo period.

Camellia oil is actively produced in Izu Oshima, which is close to the Izu region. At Kai Ito, you can experience this traditional camellia oil making and take it home in a bottle.

3. Local room “Izu Kakei no Ma”

All the guest rooms in the hotel are the local rooms “Izu Kakei no Ma” designed with the theme of the flowers of the four seasons of Izu. At the entrance of the guest room, you will be greeted by the work “Sunbeams andon” that expresses the 24 solar terms created in cooperation with a local paper-cutting artist. The alcove decoration also has a setting that expresses seasonal flowers, and you can see the view of the courtyard where you can feel the four seasons through the window.

The “Flower Calendar Screen”, which weaves the changes of the four seasons using threads dyed from flowers and tree branches by a local dyer, is also a highlight of the room.

4. Kaiseki cuisine with a tip “Ashitaba and shellfish wasabi new summer orange jelly”

Using the local familiar Ashitaba, New Summer Orange, we will offer a dish that brings out new charm. Wasabi was added to the combination of auspicious ingredients of Ashitaba, which was once considered to be an elixir of immortality and longevity, and Akanishi, a snail that is said to make a wish come true.

New summer orange with a refreshing sourness, which is a typical example of Izu citrus, is made into a soft jelly so that it is well entwined with the ingredients, and the whole is mixed well and tasted.

2. Local music
“Flower-scented tea experience”

In the olden days, cherry-blossom viewing was not about admiring the appearance of flowers, but about enjoying the incense of flowers. Following that custom, you can experience the warm feeling of spring through the Enshu-style cherry blossom viewing, where you can compare three types of gorgeous scented tea.
Period: March 1st to May 24th, 2021

“New tea tasting tea experience”

The best feature of new tea is that it stores umami in the harsh winter cold and contains a refreshing scent of young leaves. You can taste the difference by comparing the delicious new tea with the tea harvested in summer or autumn.
Period: May 25-June 30, 2021

3. Local room “Enshu Tsumugi no Ma”

In KAI Enshu, all guest rooms feature the traditional craft “Mentsumugi” that has been handed down from the Edo period to Hamamatsu. Furnishings such as shoji screens, lampshades, and cushions made by “Warmth Studio”, which continues to make rare textiles, give the guest rooms a colorful and warm atmosphere. It is also a feature that you can enjoy the view of Lake Hamana from all rooms.

4. One-of-a-kind kaiseki meal “Unagi and avocado with wasabi”

The vinegared eel with cucumber, which is popular locally, goes very well and is called “Uzaku”. In Kai Enshu, eel kabayaki and lightly pickled cucumber cut into cubes are combined with avocado, which is a vegetable material but has the same flavor and richness as eel. Add rice vinegar and wasabi to tighten the mellow taste. You can enjoy a taste that is different from the traditional “Uzaku”.
