The fishing town Taiza holds a nostalgic atmosphere especially for Japanese people.
Crabs called 'Taiza-gani', famous throughout Japan, are caught right here. The port is about a 20 minute walk from the hotel. A stroll to see the livelihood of this town is recommended. Rental fishing rods are available (JPY 1,000 for 1). The fish you catch can even be fried at the hotel.

We found the rooms, service and facilities to be of impressive quality. Despite its relative isolation (which in fact adds to its charm) and the time and cost of the trains to get there, we would do it again.
