On the threshold of the Japanese Northern Alps, KAI Matsumoto looks every bit the part of a tavern in a folk tale, but on the inside, its contemporary feel and local artworks remind you that it is as much a modern spa as it is a traditional onsen.
KAI Matsumoto was built in the imperial "shoin" style, but includes modern accents as well, creating an eclectic yet harmonious atmosphere. You can choose from standard rooms, suites with private outdoor spas, and a few deluxe quarters that include a private garden terrace as well.
At the Ryori Chaya teahouse, you'll discover why Japanese chefs are considered exquisite culinary artists the world over. The kaiseki menu consists of small portions and countless dishes, each one focusing on seasonal ingredients and the local catch of the day.
KAI Matsumoto lets you enjoy the historic Asama Hot Springs in total comfort. Hop between the traditional Japanese public bath, steam bath, outdoor bath, sauna, mist sauna, and radiant heat bath.
