Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Views of the nightly fireworks and the waterfront are available from almost all rooms at this family-run hotel a 15-minute walk (1.2 km [less than a mile]) along the shore from the village. English-speaking owners Kazuhiko and Emiko Kawaminami ensure friendly, personal service in the rambling complex they have been busy modernizing. Guests can use the small hot springs around the clock. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the facility.
