Hear the Ocean’s Call at a Seaside Hot Spring Resort
Enjoy the sound of the waves and seasonal delights at this newly renovated hotel in Shirahama
There’s an unspoken theme that ties together the many aspects of a stay at Shirahama Key Terrace Hotel Seamore: the ocean, which spreads out beside the hotel property. You can’t miss it–it’s visible everywhere from the hotel dining areas and individual guest rooms to the relaxing onsen (hot springs, both public and private). The sea is always with you at this recently renovated beachfront property, and no matter how long you stay, you’ll never quite get enough of its infinite beauty.
Even when you’re not in full view of the water, the hotel’s many decorative touches will call you back to the ocean. From the large, beautiful picture window in the dining room to the accent walls and simple and functional furniture in the guestrooms, the sea is there to soothe you.
The sea provides a literal feast for guests as well, with sashimi and deep-fried seafood highlights of the menu. There is even a sushi bar offering views of the waves. The on-site bakery provides fresh bread for the perfect on-the-go breakfast.
Another feature that can’t be missed are the hotel’s onsen baths, which use natural hot spring water from one of Japan’s most historic onsen sources. Whether you simply partake in the infinity footbath or have a full soak in the open-air bath, it’s a perfect end to a relaxing day.
Access: From Tokyo Haneda Airport, fly to Nanki-Shirahama Airport (about one hour). From there, take a taxi (about 10 minutes) or local bus to the Shin-Yuzaki stop (about 15 minutes). By train, take the Tokaido-Sanyo Shinkansen from Tokyo Station to Shin-Osaka Station (about 2 hours 30 minutes). At Shin-Osaka, transfer to the Kuroshio limited express train to Shirahama Station, then ride the free shuttle bus from the station to the hotel (about 30 minutes).
