Shimoda Onsen: Gosoku no Kutsu ryokan


The Gosoku no kutsu ryokan in Amakusa, Kumamoto Prefecture, is located in Kumamoto's Unzen-Amakusa National Park and is a top-rated spot to view the sunset over the sea. 15 detached guest rooms allow you to relax and enjoy the open-air bath dedicated to your room while watching the sunset before your eyes and the star-filled night sky. Shimoda Onsen, where Gosoku no Kutsu is located, is also a fishing town, where guests can enjoy kaiseki cuisine featuring fresh local fish. In the 16th century, Amakusa was the place where Japan met Europe and was introduced to various Western cultures as well as Christianity. The oriental space of the Gosoku no kutsu represents this historical fusion of Amakusa and the West.
