Atami Kiunkaku is place where you can explore Japan’s traditions architecture. I had the chance to judge a few English Speech Contests and watch my schools Tea Ceremony club here and every time it’s a beautiful place. The Japanese garden and the old styled tatami rooms with it’s architecture really bring the atmosphere together. You can’t help but notice despite all the Japanese atmosphere it has a touch of western design in it. It’s really unique.
It is a 5 minute walk to the beach so it’s a great place to visit if you’re every in Atami.
It used to be a ryokan (Traditional Japanese Inn) but in recent years it is a event hall. You can find all sorts of events there. Tourists always seem to be visiting!
You can find the Atami Kiunkaku Website here.
It is about a 10 to 15 minute walk from JR Kinomiya station or a 15 minute walk from JR Atami Station.
