Super friendly hosts, beach hotel with stunning views - Edit

Kaiyu Inn has a wood-fired Japanese bath, rooms with kitchenettes & balconies overlooking wide Okinohama beach, delicious well water, wifi, and a tranquil , inclusive atmosphere. Hosts Mitsu & Tae can organize a group, family - style dinner for guests, featuring traditional Japanese cuisine , made vegan or vegetarian on request. Beer & wine are sold, and surf boards, boogie boards, bikes & snorkel equipment can be rented . Our group dinner, with the other hotel guests and our hosts , had a dozen dishes, generous portions, of which 8-9 were purely vegan--delicious !
We stayed for 3 nights and loved it. We had our choice of western or futon-tatami rooms, and every room we saw had a mini fridge, a one burner hot plate, toaster or toaster oven, rice cooker, and a good supply of pots, plates, cutting board, tableware etc. The location is far from any food shop, ATM, or restaurant , so guests need to bring their own supplies or take a local bus to the closest town , Tosashimizu(20 minutes, 400 yen) for a well stocked supermarket, farmers market , bakery, noodle shops, etc.

The hotel, a bit worn and dated, is slowly being renovated with eco friendly , recycled materials, and the charming hosts (English speaking) are dedicated to a holistic lifestyle.
The crescent shaped beach is popular with local surfers, and there's a wooded nature trail, wheelchair accessible, with restrooms, along the length of the shore. The hotel is on the Shikoku 88 temple pilgrimage route. The closest train station is Nakamura, a 40 minute local bus ride away.

A hotel for Adventurous travelers !

Pros: Super welcoming hosts , Vegan friendly , Beautiful beach, hotel "onsen" overlooking gardens

Cons: Remote location
