The RAKO Hananoi Hotel is in a splendid location, close to beautiful Lake Suwa. A two-hour train ride takes you from JR Shinjuku Station in Tokyo to JR Kamisuwa Station, and from there the hotel is just a 5-minute taxi ride or a 20-minute walk away. The hotel takes advantage of the special features of nearby Kamisuwa Hot Springs, offering a variety of baths -- for example, you can soak in spa waters outdoors while enjoying the wonderful scenery or bathe in water that has been mixed with local sake (rice wine). If your travels take you to Kamisuwa in Japan's highlands, come and stay at the Rako Hananoi Hotel.


The Kamisuwa district is nestled beside Lake Suwa in the mountainous Nagano Prefecture. Kamisuwa is famous for its firework displays every summer -- that is one of the biggest in the country. Tourists come in great numbers to enjoy the spas, and also the oldest hot spring resort facility in Japan is located here. Takashima Castle, built about 400 years ago and now reconstructed, is just 10 minutes away on foot from the Rako Hananoi Hotel. Ueda is well known as a great place to view cherry blossoms in the spring.
