Onsen Hotel Complex

Hotel Urashima is a central feature of Katsuura Onsen sitting prominently on the east side of Katsuura Bay on a rugged peninsula jutting out into the Pacific Ocean.  This hotel complex is composed of four separate buildings (Honkan, Nisshokan, Nagisakan, & Sanjokan) connected by a network of tunnels, elevators and escalators. Guestrooms, especially in the Sanjokan, offer excellent panoramic views. Numerous souvenir shops, karaoke bars, and game centers line the halls. To help guests explore this labyrinth, color coded lines are set into the floor.

Hot spring baths are scattered throughout the facility including the famous Bokido, a natural hot spring bath in a cave overlooking the ocean.

The buffet meals are extensive and sometimes include entertaining Tuna filleting shows. 

Even with the large size of this hotel, there is always a quiet spot or hot spring bath to escape to for people that what to relax.
