What to do

Hamanoji-Rinkoan is located in the town of Kumihama on the shore of the Sea of Japan in the northernmost part of Kyoto Prefecture. Kumihama, which borders Hyogo Prefecture, is well known as a town where diners can enjoy the fresh bounties of the sea, including snow crab in the winter and oysters caught in Kumihama Bay in the summer. Just about a one-minute walk from the inn and lined by green pine trees, Shotenkyo, the Sanyo region’s one and only long, white-sand beach, is bustling with tourists every year. With its attractions including country-style recreation and country-style cuisine, Kumihama is an enjoyable destination for couples of all ages, as well as families. The inn’s staff’s hope is that as many people as possible will be able to enjoy the appeal of Kumihama, in Tango, Kyoto Prefecture, by coming here for an enjoyable, leisurely stay.
