A newly opened hotel in the coastal city of Kanazawa is making waves. Korinkyo Hotel debuted in late 2021, instantly becoming one of the hippest places to stay for the night.
Kanazawa is known as the "little Kyoto", full of charming traditional teahouses and wooden structures where you can get a taste of ancient Japan.
The boutique hotel is inside the former gallery of Kutani Ware, a famous Japanese pottery brand originating from the ancient Kutani, where porcelain art was made since 1655. As a result, unique craftsmanship is made visible throughout the hotel's premises.
The check-in and lounge are on the second floor, where the grey walls are decorated with books about Kanazawa. The intimate atmosphere is best enjoyed with a hot cup of green tea, which you will receive upon arrival.
