The sentiments of Shinzan
～ Surrounded by the Mother Nature,
standing quietly with magnificent tranquility and a gentle clarity ～
～ The profound presence of Gora Shinzan ～
Hakoyama,where the gods dwell / Hakone -Gora Onsen
Gora, Hakone - In the Edo period, Hakone served as a gateway to the hot spring areas blessed with abundant source waters at the western entrance to Edo along the Tokaido, one of the Edo Five Routes. Gora is one of this Hakone’s 17 Great Hot Springs. Surrounded by the Mother Nature far away from the bustle of Yumoto, it features an abundant and highly effective high temperature hot spring source, and in the latter half of the Meiji era it developed as a luxury villa location attracting many people of culture, financiers, and foreigners.
Mother Nature and Hot Spring Sources
Gora is a symbol of Mother Nature and hot spring sources which represent Hakone in modern Japanese culture.
High up in the quiet mountains surrounded by the sounds of wild birds and wind blowing through the trees, Shinzan sits calmly. Looking out into a sea of clouds covering the visage of the Kanji character “dai” with a commanding view of the great panorama of Hakone’s outer rim. Sagami Bay can be seen in the distance, and countless stars twinkle at midnight. The dawn is enveloped by a wondrous sunrise whose light floods into the building.
