Kifu no Sato 季譜の里
Spirit of the samurai
Kifu no Sato successfully fuses traditional ryokan aesthetics and atmosphere with Western touches such as beds and other locally made furniture. Unusually, the entire lobby and public spaces are covered with tatami mats, giving the large open areas a warm, welcoming feel. There are a variety of suites, some with private baths, and traditional rooms both Japanese and Western in design.
In addition to the inn's own attributes and delicious cuisine, Kifu no Sato is in an excellent location for exploring this region of Japan. Within an hour, it is possible to visit a preserved samurai town, a sword maker, the birthplace of Japanese denim, the Tottori sand dunes, a tea farm, and more, before returning to the hot springs and spa to unwind.
