Our mission

K’s House Management Team

Our most important mission is to make all of our guests fans of Japan through

providing the best possible accommodations and services and to leave them with such thoughts as

 “We are glad we chose K’s House” and “We are happy we came to Japan”.


“With its unique culture and history, abundant nature and splendid scenery, delicious food and relaxing hot-springs, we wish people to experience the varied attractions found across Japan”.

With that thought K’s House has opened twelve branches across Japan.

In 2018, we expect to open a new branch in Nikko.  Hereafter we also wish to expand into Osaka, Nara, Hokkaido, Okinawa and Kyushu district.

In order to contribute to the global community, K's House have been involved with various charitable organizations.
Since 2005 we have sponsored 6 children through World Vision, providing finacial aid to support some of the worlds most vulnerable children.
Furthermore, begining in 2014 we have supported CIESF, benefiting the advancement of education in Cambodia and other developing countries.

In the near futher K's House hopes to expand the range of our international charitable activities. 
K’s House seeks to spread the beauty of Japan and contribute to making the world a better place !
