Atami highlight
paź 2019
In general, Atami gets a lot of bad press for nothing to see (apart from the Sex Museum). Kiunkaku, however, is definitely worth checking out. The original two buildings date from the Taisho Period when Japanese were mixing Western elements into their traditional design. The result is fascinating architectural features, including large fireplaces with stone Buddhist carvings for the mantels, etc. The original buildings were later purchased along with a large plot of land then "wings" added to form a giant square enclosure surrounding a beautiful Japanese garden. The entire complex was run as a Japanese Inn for the wealthy and almost every famous author in modern Japan has stayed there - which is why they couldn't tear it down when the most recent owners wanted to get out of the hotel business. A group of concerned citizens banded together and fought the wrecking ball, forcing the city to buy the entire facility. Although they left it to crumble, someone at City Hall finally realized that the place could be a tourist draw and Kiunkaku was renovated. The city built a glass "salon" that extends into the Japanese garden, providing an amazing backdrop for concerts, many of which are free. There is also an art gallery with rotating exhibitions of local artists, as well as a "workshop" space for handicraft hounds. (The last session I attended was for pressing dried flowers.) I live in the area and definitely this is one of the more interesting places to spend some hours in Atami!

A Touch of Kyoto Close To Tokyo
lis 2019
If you don’t have time to visit Kyoto, you can visit here and taste a traditional Japanese house and garden. The glasses were made by hand with special skills and the surface is not smooth. No one can produce this special glass anymore that if it gets broken, they cannot replace it.
The house is build to surround the garden so they have a view of garden from each room. Slightly different angles.
It is well worth your time and effort to visit here and you will understand why so many authors loved to stay here.

Property from the 1920s
mar 2019 • Znajomi
If you go to Atami, this Property with its beautiful garden, initially built as a private home is worth the visit. The historical significance and the association with famous writers and personalities over the years is fascinating if you can get the details translated. There was a long period when it was converted to a Japanese Inn, and for some years now it has become the property of Atami City that pays for the maintenance and they appear to do a good job of raising funds for that purpose. Try the coffee shop as their coffee is very good

The best part of this house I felt was the Conservatory room with the skylight coming in. The combination of Japanese and Western influences in the decor of the house was interesting and unusual. The garden was also quite nice.

Tranquil Japan at its best

Loved this the most in Atami. Wonderful aristocratic Ryokan in a serene atmosphere. Visit the rooms, pause for a while, relax! Take a green tea/ coffee break in the cafe. Stroll in the tranquil garden. You won't feel like leaving the place. Only regret is that you can't stay there anymore!

A very nice stop right in the center of Atami. The house was built by a wealthy businessman long ago as a home and place to host guests. It is a very well preserved and still opulent today.

Historic home then hotel now tourist attraction
lut 2017 • Pary
This is worth the visit as it has a very eclectic architecture with areas typically Japanese - including the garden - and yet other parts that are distinctly Tudor and even Roman Bath in style.

A number of famous Japanese authors visited during the time this site was an inn. There are exhibits about these various authors.
