KAI Yufuin
Cascade of heavenly terraced rice fields KAI Yufuin
KAI Yufuin, the most recently opened stay amongst the many properties of Hoshino Resorts, is located in Oita Prefecture, a place rich in nature. This region has long been known for its vast rice fields and famous hot springs. Intentional with this locality trait in mind, the landscape of rice terraces is well integrated into the design of the property. This beautiful work was designed by Kengo Kuma, a world-famous Japanese architect. Quote on quote, the architect sometimes feels that terraced rice fields are more appealing than traditional Japanese gardens. This perspective was well incorporated into the design philosophy of Kai Yufuin. Please enjoy the beautiful countryside scenery and take advantage of nature to the fullest, while soaking in the hot springs and truly relaxing and relieving the fatigue of everyday life.
There are 5 types of guest rooms, and all rooms have 'firefly baskets' lights handcrafted to the smallest detail, by the famous craftsman Chika Iwakiri. The 'firefly basket', features a spiral shape, reminiscent of fireflies living in the waters of Yufuin, and features a flickering light as if the fireflies are alive in the basket. Oita Prefecture is also famous for traditional craft bamboo work. Embrace the comfort of being in nature resting on a bamboo headboard or sofa. Enjoy the view from the large window inside, the picture-perfect framed scenery. Other room features also include an open-air bath for pure relaxation in the comfort of a private space.
