About the Institute

HAKONE GORA Naikan Retreat Center

HAKONE GORA Naikan Retreat Center(The Kensho Villa), at an elevation of 600 meters, is a quiet place surrounded by ancient trees and natural stones. It was built in 1935 as a mountain villa for a nephew of the Meiji Emperor.
In 1957, the villa became the property of Nippon Express, which made it into a retreat for executives and employees, and in 2019 it was renovated as the Norimasa Building of the Kensho Naikan Retreat Center. The site has beautiful gardens, and a spectacular view of Myojogatake.
