I want to start by saying that my husband and I loved this hotel. It was in a beautiful place, the room was gorgeous, the private bath was wonderful. Our "butler" who checked us in and got us settled was friendly and fabulous. But I can't give it 5 stars because it just didn't live up to the standards of... More

We spent a brief sojourn at this small resort. It is situated in a remote area of the Izu Peninsula, on the shores of a rushing mountain river, surrounded by steep, heavily wooded slopes. The most outstanding feature of this establishment are rooms that combine zen-like simplicity with tasteful appointments. Each room has its own private outside hot soaking tub.... More

I saw an article on in-flight magazine about experiencing a unique combination of traditional style hospitality and modern design at Japanese inns. One picture on the page showed Arcana Izu and this picture sold me the idea to stay for two nights in this inn upon arriving in Tokyo. This inn is about seven years old. I have been told... More

My husband thought the place was great, but overall, I felt that it was a bit overpriced. There is no main building and the lobby for this hotel, you will be directed to your room once you arrive to their car valet. It gives me that all these are for cost reduction purpose and I felt a bit surprised. The... More

1. Value: Very expensive! I paid 90,000 yen for one night... I will not stay here anymore, because it is too expensive... Most importantly, I would like to check out at 145pm, but the staff said I was not allowed to do so. Okay, I paid 90,000 for one person stay and was not allowed to check out late. Very... More

It was a pleasant 2 hour drive from Tokyo. Along the way, you get to view Mt.Fuji from the expressway. The moment you pull into the Arcana driveway, someone is there to welcome you. They took our luggages and valet our car for us. Immediately, they bring you to your rooms, and all the check in process will be made... More

A piece of paradise only 2 hours from Tokyo. This is a 5 star hotel with 5 star prices but worth every bit of it - cannot fault it - beautiful setting - modern but super stylish, private onsen on the terrace outside the room, michelin star quality food, amazing and charming service. Treat yourself!

Arcana is the perfect solution for travelers looking for a relaxing and luxurious retreat from the bustling metropolis that is Tokyo. In less then two hours from Tokyo station you can be in the riverside resort in the mountains. I was on my honeymoon in Japan and we built in the two nights at Arcana to be our respite from... More

This is a place where you can relax so thoroughly that the very idea of stress makes you laugh. You can partake of a kaiseki meal that ranks right up there with the best. Stare out at tree tops over a racing small river. Dip into the onsen on your room balcony. Eat. Stroll about a bit in the village... More
