In this article, we will introduce in detail the charm, location, room features, and cuisine of this storm-watching inn in Mie Prefecture.
Storm Watching Inn Location of The Earth
Located about 35 minutes by free shuttle bus from Kintetsu Toba Station to Yuuki-no-Sato, the storm-watching inn, The Earth, is a ryokan with an open-air bath in every room, built at the tip of a cape in Toba.
Whenever a typhoon originating in the Pacific Ocean moves northward along the Japanese archipelago from July to October, it passes through the Shima Peninsula in Mie Prefecture. During the typhoon season, visitors can feel the dynamic nature of the sound of the storm blowing from the sea, the big waves hitting the cape, and lightning striking the sea in the exclusive lounge while staying at the ryokan.
From the observatory on the cape covered with virgin forest, you can see the vast blue sea and starry sky, and enjoy the spectacular view regardless of the season.
In the surrounding Toba Observatory, monuments to Ichiro Toba and Yutaka Yamakawa are displayed.
It is also nice to have lunch at a restaurant while enjoying the view. I highly recommend their popular local burgers!
A pleasant breeze blows in from the ocean, and the spectacular view includes, on a clear day, Mt.
