Island Onsen Ryokan
Kumano-Bettei Nakanoshima is a seaside Ryokan located on a private island in Katsuura Bay accessed via a short ferry ride from the tourist pier. There are two buildings: Naginosho (10 rooms) and Chomontei (31 rooms).
One of the highlights of staying in Nakanoshima is the large outdoor bath overlooking the bay. The sounds of waves on the rocks nearby, while watching the sunset over the mountains, is a wonderful experience.
Meals include local, fresh, delicious seafood.
There is a walking trail to a lookout point on the top of the forest covered island with beautiful views of the rugged coastline. Along the way is a hot spring foot bath where you can sit, relax and enjoy the surrounding nature.

: Included : Not Included
Type A Type B Type C Type D Type E
Vegetarianism is not common in the Japanese countryside. Please double-check the Vegetarian Type which the service provider can accommodate to make sure that it meets your needs. Often being able to eat trace amounts of the ubiquitous Katsuo Dashi (fish stock) makes it easier to find options.
NOTE: It is difficult and not culturally sensitive to change meal requests, or make new meal demands, onsite when you arrive at accommodations. Vegetarian types must be confirmed during the reservation process and respected during your visit.
