The Izu Peninsula is a popular weekend getaway from Tokyo, well-loved for its beautiful beaches and scenic mountains. You can easily come here for a day trip as it only takes about two hours from central Tokyo. However, come spring, you might want to spend a night at this beautiful resort. While there are many accommodation options in Izu offering comfortable stays, Hotel Kissho Caren, located near Izu-Hokkawa Station, comes with an extra feature – a spectacular outdoor onsen that overlooks Sagami Bay.

The Hekikai open-air hot spring bath is especially breathtaking in the early mornings when you can see the sunrise on the horizon. The evenings are no less beautiful, with the night sky full of stars.

In fact, the hotel is surrounded by pink sakura. Regardless of where you are within the grounds, you can still enjoy the beautiful blossoms – from the restaurants, the rooms, and of course, the aforementioned open-air onsen. In February you’ll see the Kawazu and Oshima cherry blossoms in full bloom, while March offers sensational views of blooming Somei Yoshino cherry trees.
