The Kahala Hotel & Resort Yokohama
The Kahala Hotel & Resort Yokohama Opens
Now open – 146 Rooms
Yokohama, at just 30 minutes by car from Haneda Airport, is very conveniently located, and is a community rich in history and with a unique culture. It is also considered to be an up and coming global city.
But there are also perfectly appropriate reasons for Yokohama to be the first place in Japan to open a Hawaiian hotel brand. In 1868, Japan's first emigrants set off from the Osanbashi area in Yokohama to what was then the new paradise known as Hawaii. Some decades later, it was also Yokohama where the Meiji government in Japan welcomed its first state guest, King David Kalakaua from the Kingdom of Hawaii. Building on the connections between Yokohama and Hawaii, and embodying a spirit of aloha, The Kahala Hotel & Resort Yokohama will carry on the Hawaiian hospitality tradition, and looks forward to welcoming guests as ohana, the Hawaiian concept that includes both family and treasured friends.
Every effort was made to adhere to the philosophy of the Spirit of Kahala, which has carefully cultivated the Kahala brand since The Kahala was opened in Hawaii's Kahala region 56 years ago. A new Kahala story, with a wide diversity of faces, will therefore be offered to everyone from Yokohama as well.
NOTE: The Spirit of Kahala, an offshoot of the spirit of aloha, is the source for the Kahala brand. It shows profound respect for the lives, culture, and traditions of local peoples.
