As the first hotel in Japan to openly commit itself to tourism and to use the word of « kanko » (means tourism) in its name to promote the idea that country’s « glory » is its culture, Unzen Kanko Hotel gained a lot of attention as a prominent resort hotel and as well as is regarded the standard bearer of Japan’s tourist industry.UKH was built before WW2 and is both a National Asset and Reristered Tangiable cultural Property. With 83 years of history and strong tradition, hotel is passing on to future generations the ckassic spirit of the past.
