Once you arrive it feels like you stepped into a spacious 70s coastal guesthouse. Exceptional views of the coast, warm and welcoming hosts and delightful apartments make this a unique experience. The beautifully designed onsen is very special... More

Location : on Okinohama beach coast, nearest train station Nakamura, nearest town Tosashimizu.

Kaiyu is a special experience. All the rooms have ocean and mountain views and you are steps away from Oki Beach. The rooms are spacious. Our tatami room had sliding doors opening to a balcony, western beds, ample closet space, two tables and comfortable mid-century design furniture. There are also floor futon rooms available. There are rooms in the large... More

We had a magical time at Kaiyu. Starting with the warm welcome from Mitsu and his lovely family who ask the newcomers to share a meal with him and other guests on the first night. This is a fantastic way to create a different kind of experience and a sense of family during the stay. The hotel is very beautiful... More

Staying with Mitsu and his family was a very pleasant experience for our family. From the uniqueness of each guest room he created, joining the deliciously home cooked family dinner to meet other guests, to enjoying the lovely 'organic' family Onsen.
