About 90 minutes from central Tokyo. The eight-room inn, Satoumitei Kinhalou, is located on the lapping waves of the
Oarai coast, and has its origins in the seaside recreation culture of the civilization-enlightenment period.
The rooms are designed in the style of a villa with a seaside veranda, and the barefooted rooms are modern yet full
of the warmth of wood.
Here, we introduce the charm of the main residence of Satoumitei Kinhalou.
Location of Satoumitei
Oarai, Ibaraki Prefecture, is located not far from the city center, but combines the peaceful and relaxing
atmosphere of a farming village with the magnificence of the rich fishing grounds nurtured by the Pacific Ocean.
The “Rikai-tei Kinparo Hontei” is nestled in the magnificent ocean and the forest of the Shinto shrine that has been
nurtured along with the Oarai Isomae Shrine, which has been revered for millennia.
Although it is still a young ryokan, having opened only five years ago as an inn where you can relax and have a good
night’s sleep on the beach, its predecessor, Kinnamaro, is a long-established ryokan with a long history dating back
to the Meiji Era (1868-1912).
The spirit of hospitality and serenity backed by 120 years of history has been passed down throughout the inn, while
modernity and convenience have been added with its new incarnation.
Attractions of Satoumitei
The magnificent unobstructed view of the ocean is breathtaking, made possible by the proximity to the edge of the
Lounging on the chairs on the wooden decks in all rooms, you can enjoy nature therapy all to yourself with the
sounds of the ocean, the sea breeze, and the scent of the seashore.
The bath time in the large public bathhouse with the sea breeze is also exceptional.
The bathtubs are filled with boiling water drawn from the clear spring water of the Oarai Isomae Shrine, which has
been here for 1,100 years, and you would almost think you were in an infinity pool at a luxury resort overseas.
You will lose track of time as you gaze at the ever-changing colors of nature while enjoying the mysterious feeling
of openness, as if you have become one with the sea and the sky.
