Hoshino Resorts’ KAI Anjin and after-Bath Refreshment

From Our Window

Recently one of us here at drinkingjapan.org used the barely open window of opportunity for travel and relaxation to visit Hoshino Resorts’ KAI Anjin, which is located in Ito, Shizuoka Prefecture. Hoshino Resorts is an upmarket hotel chain, and from our experience at KAI Anjin, its reputation is well deserved. Though the anticipated spectacular ocean views were a little less than spectacular on account of overcast skies, the accommodations, food, and service were suburb. The local theme of this particular unit revolves around Ito’s historical connection to shipbuilding, specifically that conducted by William Adams (1564-1620), a.k.a., Miura Anjin, at the behest of Tokugawa Ieyasu.

Free-flowing IPA

At this point our readers might be wondering what any of this has to do with the theme of our blog. Has the summer heat addled our brains? Have we run dry on drinks to critique? Hardly. You see, upon exiting the baths at KAI Anjin, guests can avail themselves—on a free-flowing basis—of an IPA produced by Baird’s, a foreign-owned brewery whose output we reviewed some time ago.  

Since we’re on a sort of British theme here, we’ll end with a quote from Brits of a later date: “A splendid time is guaranteed for all” at KAI Anjin, of course.
