Kokuminshukusha Sun Road Kibiji
Reviewed 16 March 2012

This a beautiful, new hot springs hotel 30 minutes on train from Okayama. Everyone was very kind and we did not want to leave. It looks remote, but the town of Soja is well-developed and maintained. You can sightsee in Okayama, take the Kibi line to Soja and take a taxi to the hotel. The attractions are the hot springs baths on the first floor, the breakfast and dinner buffet, featuring Okayama-grown produce, a farmer's market and gift shop, and the Tsuru no Sato crane breeding facility next door. During our three days in Soja, we rented bicycles at the station and rode the Kibi Bicycle Plain route; took many hot springs baths; enjoyed a relaxing head massage in the massage facility by the bathing area; played ping pong for hours; and visited the crane facility. You can even watch the red-crested white cranes while you are eating in the hotel dining room. There is an awesome gift shop in the basement, as well as a farmer's market. We bought fantastic strawberries there--so sweet. Okayama is the home of Momotaro, so you can stock up on kibidango, too. You can rent a bike at the front desk and access the bike path directly if you head south from the hotel (look for the bike underpass and head left to get to Kokubunji Temple), so you don't need to go back to the station for bikes. The buffet was delicious and kept my kids very satisfied.They especially loved the chocolate fountain at dinner. The local vegetables and rice were quite tasty. There was some repetition over the course of three days, but it was all delicious. There is a free shuttle bus to Soja station every morning at 9:00 and 9:50, but be sure to request it the night before. By taxi it is a tad over Y1400 and if you get a receipt from the driver and give it to the front desk, they will deduct Y500 from your hotel bill.

Room Tip: The cheapest rooms (tatami with futon) have only a toilet and no bath.

I am an American teacher who stayed at the Sunroad Kibiji as a guest of the Japanese people through the Fulbright Memorial Fund Program in 2004. I will always have the Japanese people in my heart because of the kindness and care shown to me during my stay in Soja. Our visit was carefully and meticulously planned for our education and comfort during our stay. The people of Soja, the schools of Soja, and the Sunroad Kibiji treated us with courtesy and solicitude and tolerated our noisy American ways. I am grateful to all the people of Japan for their friendliness and kind outreach to me, an American teacher.
