Guests staying at the KAI Sengokuhara will be able to enjoy authentic Japanese cuisine which highlights the aromas and other qualities of the local seafood and vegetables, reflecting the ryokan's location in the mountains with proximity to the ocean. Dishes and dishware are combined in ways both beautiful and playful, as befitting an art-oriented ryokan.

Private outdoor baths are located on the terraces of every single room here at KAI Sengokuhara and the water used in the bath comes straight from the famous Owakudani volcanic valley (check out what else to do in Hakone!). Guests staying in the Signature Rooms also get to feast their eyes on room art created by resident artists.
