Explore a World of Tangible Cultural Properties in Tokyo and Hakone

October 11, 2022

TOKYO – ( Newswire.com ) Japan has a number of registered Tangible Cultural Properties, five of which tourists can visit with Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo’s latest package, ‘Tangible Culture Package: Tokyo Hotel in the Clouds and Hakone Onsen Resort.’ Celebrating the reopening of Japan’s borders to independent travelers, it features natural hot springs, delicious cuisine, and a visit to all five Cultural Tangible Properties.

Visitors will spend one night at Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo and one night at Hakone Kowakien Mikawaya Ryokan in Hakone, one of Japan’s top hot spring destinations. At Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo, guests can tour the property’s two Tangible Cultural Properties, which are defined as tangible cultural products that possess high historic, artistic, and academic value to Japan. One is the Three-Story Pagoda, the symbol of the hotel’s garden, which is thought to be built in the twelfth century. The other is Zangetsu, a sukiya-style teahouse that Baron Heitaro Fujita relocated from a villa in Hakone to its current location in Tokyo.

Hakone Kowakien Mikawaya Ryokan is a 140-year-old traditional Japanese hotel featuring a 16,000-square-meter Japanese garden, mountain views, private villas, and hot springs. The hotel’s resort area, called Hakone Kowakien, has two registered Tangible Cultural Properties: Geihinkan and Kihinkan. Geihinkan is a former house of a village head, while Kihinkan is a Japanese-style building that was constructed as a villa for Heitaro Fujita.

Shinsuke Yamashita, the hotel’s General Manager, notes that the hotel is “thrilled to offer this package that will allow our foreign guests to experience Japanese culture first-hand. We are looking forward to welcoming our international guests very soon.”

The plan includes an English concierge service, which can be used to arrange a dinner at stone-grilling restaurant Mokushundo, a tea ceremony, and other cultural activities. Guests also have access to Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo’s award-winning spa complete with a pool, fitness center and Japanese hot springs.

Please visit Hotel Chinzanso Tokyo’s website for more information on the package.
