Have a blast with this firework theme hotel stay

Hoshino Resort RISONARE Atami boasts amazing views of Atami and the local natural hot springs from up on the mountain where the hotel is situated. But if the spectacular view from the mountain resort isn’t quite enough, consider staying in the hotel during one of firework displays, which will be happening on a total of 13 days from June 14 to December 13, 2020.

As part of a special campaign the hotel is offering the chance to enjoy the Atami Sea Fireworks from the hotel by fully immersing oneself into a world of “hanabi”. The plan includes dinner at the hotel with a “Japanese Fireworks Dining” experience, the chance to relax in a firework inspired patterned yukata and the opportunity to enjoy sparklers on the guest room balcony.

After dining, guests will be able to make their way out onto a private terrace where seats will be set up for enjoying the view of the fireworks. A professional photographer will be available to take photos as guests take in the sights from the balcony. *Tip - wear the firework yukata when having photos taken in order to produce the perfect outcome.

A firework pattern yukata, obi and other special accessories will be provided in the guest room. Wearing the special yukata will be sure to set the mood and is the perfect piece of clothing to enjoy the night sky illumination in. Staff will be on hand ready to assist with dressing and setting hair if needed.

The special “Japanese Fireworks Dining” experience meal features a kaiseki menu made using seasonal seafood from the local area. The bubbles from the sparkling sake “HANABI”, resemble and will remind guests of the fireworks going off in the night sky.

Under the firework stay plan, guests will stay in the Terrace Living Suite – a 123 square metered room with a 35 square meter balcony overlooking Sagami Bay.
