大好きな宿がいくつかある。 また帰りたくなる宿だ。 そこには安心感とか懐かしさとか、直ぐに言葉にはならないけど自分の足りないピースを満たしてくれる大切なものが隠されてる。 星の数ほどホテルや旅館はあれど、海癒はとても特別な宿。 わかりやすく言えばその宿泊スタイルや世界いちトゥルトゥルのピュアな温泉のお湯が特別さを物語る。(わかりやすく言えばね。(^^) でもその素晴らしさは言葉では伝えられないのが本当のところ。 少し説明するとするなら「人生を進ませたい時に帰る場所」とでも言おうか。 本当はあんまり教えたくない大切な場所。 If you come from outside of Japan, This is the best place to know "beauty of Japan". Beautiful nature, beautiful room,great food and AMAZING hot spring. One last thing is beautiful people!More

About
Description
We provide condominium style accommodations, you can stay only for one night, a week, or we encourage to stay longer, like living this place instead of just "come & go". All rooms faced to south and ocean view, More with mini kitchen. We want to provide you the experience of living here, this TOSA SHIMIZU village and enjoy the feeling of Japanese village. "Environment-friendly also human-friendly facility" is our policy. We value the power of nature, trying not to rely on the artificial convenience, and live "with" the nature as much as possible. We love fresh clean air here, so all are smoking free space. We want to enjoy the seasonal wind, cold and warm, so put some ideas when we make our facilities in order not to rely on air conditioning. The lights at passages are solar sensor light, the dining space at ground floor we called " HOTARU (firefly) dining" and enjoying Less
