Hoshino Resorts KAI Poroto – Hokkaido – Opening January 14, 2022
The latest installment that is part of Hoshino’s KAI line of ryokans is a spectacular blend of local culture and modern comfort. Inspired by the art and architecture of the indigenous Ainu people, all 42 rooms of KAI Poroto will have views of Lake Poroto and be surrounded by the forests of Hokkaido. The onsen itself is filled with Shiraoi waters, a rare type of onsen water that contains organic minerals derived from plants. Hoshino encourages guests at KAI Poroto to explore many of the local attractions that showcase the reconstruction and development of Ainu culture, including the Upopoy National Ainu Museum and Park.

Nordisk Hygge Circles UGAKEI – Mie Prefecture – Opening Spring 2022
Amongst Mie Prefecture’s towering trees and roaring waterfalls, Nordisk Hygge Circles is set to open this coming spring. The luxury campground was designed by the Danish architecture team Third Nature in a joint bid with Japanese engineers, which won a regenerative tourism competition launched by the Danish outdoor gear company Nordisk. The site will consist of three main areas: a rest area with reservable circular cabins and glamping tents; a “learning field” for nature-inspired excursions and workshops; and an area where guests can pitch their own tents.

Roka – Kagawa Prefecture – Opening April 2022
Opening in time for one of the largest art events in Japan, the Setouchi Triennale, Roka is a full-scale ryokan with private open-air baths in all 11 of its suites. The property will offer guests more than just a luxury ryokan experience, by creating a space to inspire art and culture with its various galleries featuring contemporary art pieces. Roka will also have a Japanese-style lounge and restaurant, offering up local specialties such as fresh seafood from the Setouchi region, while offering traditional ryokan hospitality and comfort.
