I selected this hotel to hear the real story of Tsunami. This hotel has the tsunami devastated area bus tour with storyteller. It was about 1 hour drive, but I could hear what happened after the 3/11. I can't experience it at usual life.
The room has enough area and one bedroom. Hotel has 2 onsen, 1 has open-air bath and sauna room. Scenery from the room and onsen were excellent. Dinner and breakfast were delicious. Hotel has the little library collecting manga, my sons enjoyed reading them.
Seagull could be seen from the room. Maybe they don't afraid human but little bit noisy.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- This hotel, set against a backdrop of blue skies and sun, is in superbly natural surroundings. Located on the edge of Shizugawa Bay, our hotel offers excellent seafood cuisine and the tranquil atmosphere of the sea. Our staff were witness to the Great East Japan Earthquake and subsequent tsunami. In order that memories of the disaster not be forgotten, we operate a "storyteller's bus" around the disaster-ravaged area. We take you on an hour-long trip to observe the devastated area, while our staff talk about their recollections of the event. Reservations are required so book early. ... more less
