Sowaka-ro

Overlook the port and town for awaiting a favorable tide.

Speaking of Tomonoura, it is the port town where the boats moving by the rise and fall of the tides used to have waited for a favorable tide. In addition, it is the only town in the country where we can see a complete set of the harbor facilities of the Edo period, consisting of 'joya-to' (all-night street lamp), 'gangi' (stair-like landing area), 'hatoba' (wharf), 'tadeba' (old dock) and 'funa-bansho' (old coast guard station). Recently, it is also known as a stage for animated films, such as "Ponyo on the cliff".

Please check in at the sister-inn "Onfunayado Iroha" and go to the inn. It is located in a small elevated area about 50 steps up. This location is the main attraction of this inn. You can obtain an 180-degree view through the all-glass window of the seaside room and look across the broad panorama of the town and the port. There is an air created by the simple life in the port town, and the flow of time there matches the journey. "A glimpse into the life and people of the place" is one of the best things of "journey". It is a place where you will feel like leaving yourself to the timeline of this town and just looking at the sun rising and setting through the window of the hotel.

This inn was a villa built in the 1910s. On the renovation, the owner thought "we borrow the building of the time as it is" and tried to preserve it in its original condition as much as possible. The rain leak mark of the ceiling is one of the examples. The pattern of the leak is like an annual ring of a house, and it is a sign that the building has been there over a long time. The building built in an early 20th century has remembered many encounters and partings in Tomonoura where the tides meet and part each other. From now on, it will continue to curve a wonderful encounter in the annual ring of the house as a hotel.

Room | Sowaka-ro
Both the first and second floors are Japanese-style connected rooms of 8-mat room and 3-mat room. We have a bedroom with twin beds on the ground floor. All the corridors around the sea side have glass doors, so you can see the view of the port and town of Tomonoura.
 
If you wish, you can order dinner and breakfast at the sister-inn "Onfunayado Iroha", which is a 3-minute walk from this inn. The dinner is different from a typical inn's food, and it is an original kaiseki meal in semi-Western style. We cook mainly on local foodstuffs of season and offer unique dishes. Please enjoy the meal that is based on Japanese cuisine plus the sensitivity of the modern-day.

Breakfast is "home-made bread and marmalade, home-roasted coffee" (delivered to Sowaka-ro). You can also order an advertising menu of Onfunayado Iroha, "Japanese meal set using sea bream, the specialty of Tomonoura"(served at the restaurant).

Facilities

Balcony | sowaka-ro
Please fully enjoy the taste of the early 20th century building. While feeling the history of the house from scratches on the pillars and marks of rain leaks, you will be able to think of the roses at that time. The stairs are also traditional steep stairs, so please be careful when going up and down.
