Charming Villa Gaka in Ishikawa-Japan
Gaka is a hot spring ryokan built on top of Yamashiro Hot Spring in Kaga.
Guests are offered a genuine Kaga experience, from the classic architectural elements that have been preserved from the four-century-old ryokan building to the traditional Kaga craft artworks that decorate each room.
Rooms feature low beds and sofas that provide plenty of comfort, giving guests a relaxing environment in which to appreciate the stunning decor composed of paper, dyed fabric, ceramics, and urushi lacquer—all crafted through techniques developed in Kaga.
Yamashiro Hot Spring produces low-alkaline waters that have a pleasing density and are known for their skin rejuvenating effects.
Baths look out onto gardens with ornamental pines; when it snows, branches are held aloft with white cords that form elegant cones.
