It was a great onsen hotel.  The old wing are still based on the old wooden structure house.

Such a nice place.  Dinner is served in the room every day.  We enjoy very much of it.

So, we planed to stay there this year.  But something bad happened.

On Dec 4, 2014, 10 days before we visit them, a fire has broken out.  And it has destroyed almost everything.

So, our booking was cancelled.

Don’t know we should feel sad or we should feel fortunate.

We are sad because it was such a nice hotel.

We think we are fortunate, as it happen before we go there.

here are the news report.

Another news report.  Everyone was safe.

So, let’s say good buy to Korakuen Onsen hotel for now.  It gave us such a good memory.
