Mountain-side Hotel in Kumano City

Umihikari is a hotel on a mountain-side overlooking the Pacific Ocean (famous for its views), just inland from JR Kumanoshi station in Kumano City.  The facility has mixture of Japanese and Western rooms.   There are large communal hot spring baths.  Meals feature local produce and fresh seafood, which are served in the dining room area.  Sightseeing spots such as the dramatic cliffs of Onigajo and Japan's oldest shrine, Hananoiwa are nearby, making it a nice base.  It is also popular for walkers on the Iseji pilgrimage route with shuttle service to/from the Kumanoshi train station.

Go To Travel Campaign

The Go To Travel Campaign is an initiative of the federal government of Japan to support the tourism industry which has been hard hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.  When you book via the KUMANO TRAVEL Community Reservation System (managed by the The Tanabe City Kumano Tourism) we are receiving the financial support aid on behalf of you and relaying this funding onto the local service providers. 

This Campaign in only for Japanese citizens or foreign residence of Japan.

IMPORTANT: Cancellation fees are applied as to the terms and conditions of booking based on the original price plan before the discount.
