A Touch of Traditional Luxury Near Takeda Castle
Spend a memorable night in a converted sake brewery
Takeda Castle Town Hotel En is an elegantly restored property at the base of Takeda Castle. The property, which has been in the Kimura family for 400 years, was formerly a renowned sake brewery.
A former drawing room and the large warehouse have been repurposed to serve as guest rooms, complete with both Western-style mattresses and Japanese touches like sliding shoji screens and tatami mats. Wooden beams and ornate scrolling reflect the structure's past life as a working brewery. A separate annex is available for exclusive use by one group per day.
Food is another highlight, with dinner ingredients selected from regional favorites, like Tajima beef, one of Japan’s heritage cattle brands, and locally grown vegetables.
The hotel is just a short walk from Takeda Castle, known as the “castle in the sky” due to the unique weather conditions of fog and clouds that give the appearance that it’s floating in midair.
