Special Point 03

Yakakutei in the Rain

Rainy flavor

The rainy courtyard is actually the most spectacular

A tranquil Japanese garden resides at the center of the hotel. Created according to the gardener’s
meticulous design, the moss garden’s scenery is considered especially fine of rainy days.

For this reason, the rainy season is the most recommended time of year to stay at Yakakutei.
Kagoshima’s rainy season is long, with frequent rainfall during June and July,but there are many repeat guests who visit during this season specifically.
Appreciate the scenery as the rain brings out more vivid colors in the newly budding fresh greenery.

During the rainy season, have a luxurious lie-in,
spending your time at the inn as you would at home

The best part of having a lie-in is the luxury of doing nothing.
From the time your check in until the time you check out the next day,
spend your stay anyway you like, reading the book you have been wanting to read,
having long talks with a special partner, or sleeping in as long as you want.
Devoting yourself to a favorite pastime or the things you have not been able to do lately,
relieves stress, and lets you feel fulfilled.

Take in the view of the superb Japanese moss garden, said to be most beautiful on rainy days.
Enjoy a luxurious lie-in you can experience nowhere else.
