Hamachidori-no-yu Kaishu Attractions
At Hamachidori-no-yu Kaishu, where the cape itself is the inn, there are paths and gardens where you can view the various formations of the sea.
Walking to the far end of the inn on the cape, you will find a pavilion perfect for watching the sunset, and whether it is sunny or rainy, you will be captivated by each intricate collage of nature.
Three bathhouses with different atmospheres offer blissful bathing with a view of the ocean.
Please enjoy the Shirahama Onsen, one of the three oldest hot springs in Japan with a history of more than 1,300 years.
In the mixed bathing open-air bath “Hamachidori-no-yu”, the sea seen from the tip of the cape reflects the shimmering azure of the morning and the blazing red of the evening, a vivid transition of colors.
The “Oyuya,” a large indoor bath made of hinoki cypress, boasts a spectacular view and features two types of hot springs: the Aiki Onsen, which is said to revive the soul, and the Bunju Onsen, which is said to impart wisdom.
There are three “private open-air baths”: “Umeka-no-yu” with a bathtub made of tasteful cypress barrels, “Ishiko-no-yu” with a lustrous stone bathtub, and “Iwato-no-yu” with a rock bathtub. They are built a little apart from each other on the way down to the sea.
Why not spend a private moment in a private open-air bath, each with a different flavor?
Reservations are not required, and you can freely use the private baths at any time as long as you check the information signboard at the bathhouse to confirm that there are baths available.
For a rest during your visit to the baths, there is the Kaiji Teahouse, and cold drinks and popsicles are available at the bathhouse, making it the perfect place to take a breather.
Hamachidori-no-yu Kaishu Room
Each of the three types of guest rooms, “Hamaya-Retached,” “Dawn Sho,” and “Nami no Sho,” is a captivating encounter with a once-in-a-lifetime landscape unique to an inn on the cape.
Hamaya Roku,” which has the atmosphere of a villa closest to the sea in Kaishu, offers eight Japanese-style and Western-style room types: a two-story maisonette type and a spacious Japanese-style and Western-style room (one-story) of approximately 60 square meters.
Rooms are also furnished with alcohol such as plum wine and shochu, and you can freely drink coffee from the coffee machine! Another popular feature is the wide variety of skin care items.
Please enjoy a luxurious time while basking in the pleasant sea breeze.
At “Dawn’s Sho,” there are 21 Japanese-style and Western-style guest rooms, 3 Asian-style guest rooms, and 15 Western-style double rooms.
In the Japanese and Western-style guest rooms, cool light shines underfoot, and the dawn light, which gradually increases as night falls, illuminates the horizon and the cove, heralding the morning.
A limited number of three Asian-style rooms on the top floor overlooking the ocean offer a different atmosphere with a different flavor.
The rooms are designed with universal design with no steps, so they are wheelchair-accessible.
The double rooms have wide open windows and spacious 200 cm double size beds for you to take your time!
The view of the cape, which is diverse, is sure to make for a very relaxing time.
The “Nami no Sho” offers 60 Japanese-style and Western-style guest rooms, perfect for watching the colors and sounds of the waves.
Hamachidori-no-yu Kaishu Cuisine
At Hamachidori-no-yu Kaishu, a hot spring full of delicacies from Kishu, you can enjoy seafood from the sea and the mountains in a kaiseki course.
The Kii Peninsula, rich in nature, is overflowing with delicacies from the sea. Kue (a kind of fish that is said to be a phantom of the sea), Ise lobster, Hamo (a kind of spiny dogfish), and tuna are just a few of the fresh ingredients that you will find here!
For dinner, you can choose between the Kishu Funamori Kaiseki “Ushiosai” and the seasonal Umihotaru.
At Ushiosai, we use seasonal ingredients from the sea and the mountains for local production for local consumption, and we also use colorful arrangements and tableware that are pleasing to the eye.
At Umihotaru, guests can enjoy “Kumano beef,” a brand of beef nurtured in the rich nature and climate of the Kumano region.
And at the Shiraho lounge, ramen noodles with homemade soup are served from 22:00 to 23:00. The soup ends when it runs out, so if you need a nightcap, come early!
