River Retreat Garaku is a truly unique Japanese resort hotel offering a wide range of luxurious rooms and suites for couples and even groups of all sizes. Each of the spacious and tastefully decorated guest rooms feature a unique layout, design concept and original artwork. But don't expect to spend all your time in the room as Garaku's extensive amenities include a full service day spa and fitness club, restaurants and café, an art museum and outdoor artwork to discover.
Overlooking the scenic Jinzu River in rural Toyama Prefecture, Garaku seems a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but the short 15 minute drive from Toyama airport means Garaku is easily reached from Tokyo. The architect's concept was to create a retreat enveloped in art, rather than simply a resort hotel. Garaku is as much a showcase of Japanese contemporary art and architecture as it is a resort. The owner's passion for art, design and love for architecture is evident in the rooms, public spaces and the building itself.
