The location also provides easy access to sightseeing destinations in Kyoto and Nara, so it's a great place to stay if you're thinking of making a little side trip to those areas.

The food served at our hotel is prepared using in-season ingredients from right here in Kada, and we put great care in the appearance of each dish as well as the flavor.
