It is a two-hour drive from Nagoya and a 45-minute drive from Hamamatsu.
Visitors can book through Internet booking agencies. The delicious lunch
buffet in the clubhouse whatever you eat is the highly recommended.
The hotel was built in 1970’s by Mr. Kawakami, who was the owner of Yahama
Corporation at that time. The Katsuragi-Kitanomaru which is next to the
Katsuragi GC is the wonderful performance which rendered luxury. Kitanomaru
is the castle itself rather than a hotel which did not use any halves
woods but overtook the highest of the wooden structure. Although, I did
not have enough time to stay this time but I was allowed to only have
a look at the inside after the round, as soon as entering into there,
it was very impressive because of feeling the nature of the warmth with
wooden surfaces. The Japanese garden which is located inside is also beautiful,
I would like to stay there if there is an opportunity in future. This
hotel is also famous as the base camp hotel of the representatives of
Japan during the 2002 World Cup Soccer.
