From the minute you walk through the gate at the Hotel Kinzan, you know you are somewhere different. The service is smooth and professional without being pretentious and immediately provides the weary traveler a calm, relaxing environment. The hotel is Traditional, yet modern, is sublime but refreshing. You'd think the juxtaposition of these would cause a grinding conflict, but they... More
