Sandankyo Hotel, a traditional wooden Japanese-style inn, is located at the entrance of Sandankyo Gorge, which is designated as a National Scenic Beauty. As you surround yourself with the songs of the local birds, the lively grens, the rush of crystal water, the colorful autumn foliage or the gorge covered in snow, it almost feels as if time is moving slowly. Stay withh us to relax among the natural blessings of the gorge, and to feel at one with the surroundings. Experience our Japanese cuisine, using Sansai, local edible wild plants.
