Me and my family took a Yokoso tour ( local Japanese company) to Noto Peninsula, with the Kagaya being the highlight of the stay. The hotel was definitely anticipated to be grand and lovely. We were greeted by rows of kimono dressed ladies, one of which, a younger lady, was pushed forward to serve us, as she spoke perfect English.... More

This hotel was amazing. It was a Japanese Ryokan-style hotel which means it was in the old style of Japan. The rooms were large but simple in decor. Tatami mats were throughout and you removed your shoes as you entered in the hallway. It was like entering a house! We had two rooms, each with a closet. One had a... More

Kagaya is such a unique place. Very few westerners go here, it is an authentic Onsen resort with riokan style rooms. If sleeping on a futon is not your style, skip it, but if you want an amazing hot spring resort and some great entertainment and loads of fun, not to mention the personal room attendants, check it out. Expensive,... More

Being treated like royalty is something anyone can enjoy... for a price. The service at Kagaya does not stop. My colleagues and I were treated by the Governor of Ishikawa to a stay at this hotel. It really should not be categorized as a B&B but as a full service hotel. It is more of a modern ryokan where meals... More

The public areas of the Kagaya are glitzy and modern, but the rooms are traditional ryokan style. Leave your shoes at the door. The room attendant fits you for a yukata upon arrival, and that is what you wear when you are inside the hotel. The rooms are traditional, with futons for sleeping on the floor, and only one low...

Kagaya is famous for its service, and i think it's not over-rated. hotel itself isn't so value for money, but the service is REALLY GOOD! not much to see in the neighborhood or the area, and the transportation to Nanao isn't so easy either.

You are greeted by a line of women dressed in kimono, taken to your room by one and fitted out with a Yukata that you can wear throughout your stay. The lady that takes you to your room becomes your room attendant and is the one that fits you with your Yukata and shows you how to wear it. She... More
