KAI Tsugaru
Engage Yourself with the Culture of TsugaruHoshino Resorts KAI Tsugaru
Tsugaru, in Aomori Prefecture, is located on the west shore of the Tsugaru Peninsula, facing the East Sea. It is well-known for its chilly summers and year-round snowfall, as well as for its hot spring street, Owani Onsen. Kai Tsugaru's hot spring can treat your body and mind to a pleasant smell of apples by floating apples, a Tsugaru delicacy, in a bathtub. While drinking local wine and admiring the floating garden, you will experience a unique moment that is characteristic of Kai Tsugaru.
Kai Tsugaru, located in the dense forest, had a major renovation in 2019 and reintroduced the traditional craft "Tsugaru kogin-zashi," which has been passed down to Tsugaru from ancient times. K ogin embroidery is a technology developed with the wisdom of life because it strengthens the fabric, allowing kimonos to be worn for an extended period of time, and its warmth, allowing kimonos to resist the cold of winter. The interior of the room can be said to be surrounded by Japanese customs, as it is unified with diamond patterns used for Kogin embroidery on the walls, porch lighting, washbasins, and mattresses in the room. There are five distinct types of accommodations, including cosy rooms with ample living room space and Western-style rooms with a great ambience created by evening lighting on the ceiling.

    A live performance of Tsugaru shamisen is held every night in the lobby. In order to bring the most unique acoustic experience to the ears of the audience, we pay meticulous attention to the "raw sound" that does not go through the microphone at Kaitsugaru.

    Bath halls feature large windows that look out onto beautiful scenes of nature, from lush greenery in the spring and summer to the vibrant colors of fall, and the thick blankets of snow that cover the Japanese garden in the winter. Enjoy a view only available at KAI Tsugaru.
