Serene and welcoming
Since 1923, the Sounkaku Grand Hotel has carried on the concept introduced by its founder, Hatsuichi Arai and continues to pass on its traditions and spirit of hospitality, which is expressed in the peaceful atmosphere and open ambience of the guest rooms. The hotel offers a gracious reception and rooms that afford beautiful views of the Sounkyo Valley throughout the seasons. Our 161 rooms located on the 3rd to 10th floors (accommodating 840 people) provide spacious lodging for single guests as well as groups. We pride ourselves on respecting the privacy of our guests and offering valuable services.
