Hotel Description

Kotohira Kadan has had a long time to perfect its game. A historic ryokan that pops up now and then in classic Japanese literature, it’s been hosting visitors for better than four centuries. So this is an old place, and a traditional one, though not slavishly so by ryokan standards. On the one hand we have all the usual charms of a first-rate ryokan: meticulously tended gardens, spring-fed communal baths (some rooms have private ones, too), and rooms with tatami mats, futons, and sliding paper screens. On the other hand, some of us will be relieved to find wi-fi coverage, LCD TVs, and ample opportunity for karaoke — hardly a trip back in time, to say the least.

Meals here, however, stick pretty tightly to the ryokan script, and it’s a good thing, too, because the execution is exemplary. Kaiseki, the traditional tea-ceremony dinner, generally consists of some 8–13 courses, and the food here is staunchly local both in terms of ingredients and preparation. Here in Kagawa Prefecture this means fish, crab, and shrimp from the Inland Sea, as well as specially prepared meats and the region’s famous version of udon served al dente in a broth of tuna and kelp. Then there’s the oldest part of all: a fine view of the Sanuki-Fuji mountain range in the distance and plenty of quiet space to contemplate it.

How to get there:

Kotohira Kadan is approximately 2 hours by train from Osaka (JR Shin-Osaka Station to Okayama to JR Kotohira Station). Transfers from JR Kotohira Station is available if arranged with the hotel in advance. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for assistance.
