A Beach and Forest Stay Offering the Best of Both Worlds


Lose yourself in a renovated traditional guest house surrounded by nature


HÏSOM in Yunotsu Onsen town is an ideal getaway destination from the bustling city. Embrace yourself in woodsy aromas and the sounds of the forest, then marvel at majestic waves crashing onto the shore at the beach. You’re sure to get deeper in touch with Mother Earth at this traditional villa in rural Shimane Prefecture, bordering the Sea of Japan.
Slide open the wooden door, and you’ll find the classic tatami floor. The iconic Japanese-style interior will immediately lead you into another world that all belongs to you. Relax in the spacious rooms, or read a book in the lush green backyard. Prepare food together with family and friends in the full open kitchen and barbecue patio, or book in advance to enjoy a catered lunch or dinner. Forget your everyday worries and spend quality moments in an undisturbed space.



Be sure to also tour the surrounding areas-the magnificent mountains and ocean vistas of Shimane are sure to impress. Stroll through a primeval forest, or take a short walk down a path to arrive at a sandy beach. Go for a swim, fish (fishing poles can be provided), or simply appreciate the breathtaking views of nature’s creation. For those looking for more marine activities, sea kayak and stand-up paddleboard experiences can be found just a 15-minute drive away.
Also, while you’re here, why not try out a selection of exquisite local delicacies? HÏSOM is a paradise where you will find the simplest and most fulfilling pleasures.
