Ryokan The Kayotei is located in the small hot springs village of Yamanaka, in Ishikawa prefecture. The inn is surrounded by majestic trees and lovingly nurtured gardens encircled by thickly forested hills. Inside, original painted screens, fine works of pottery and antique “tansu” (old Japanese chests) adorn the hallways and the common spaces. Kayotei’s 10 suite rooms are arranged in the traditional Sukiya style, the architectural space designed for a tea ceremony. The Higashiyama Rooms have expansive views of Kayotei’s own forests and mountains and feature a tatami room in pure Japanese style. The Japanese Suites are designed in the Sukiya style of residential architecture that has its origins in the 17th century housing of Japan’s aristocracy and affluent classes and large windows to enjoy the view of the pristine mountains.

Retreat Projects

Community

We employed about 70% of the staff from the community, improving farming techniques and educating the locals about organic responsible farming. We work with the people in the communities, not just for them: we identify and give priority to tasks through dialogue and the comprehension of the community needs.

Cuisine

Kayotei’s chefs are masters of the art of Japanese Kaiseki cuisine. Guests dine in tatami rooms in the style of luxurious “ryotei” restaurants. The meals are prepared with attention to every detail and are a work of visual as well as culinary art. Kayotei’s cuisine follows the seasons and meals are prepared using local seafood, seasonal vegetables and organic ingredients.

Construction

Riokan The Kayotei has been designed in the Sukiya style of a tea cottage from the Muromachi period (1333-1573) and graced with subtle decorative touches, low polished oak tables, traditional works of pottery and modern sculptural designs. The Inn was opened in the 1970s after years of consideration and study with an architect, a craftsman and a chef.
