The Mana Village Ashizuri Ashizuri Pacific Hotel Hanatsubaki


Situated near Ashizuri Onsen Village and adjacent to Ashizuri Cape, the hotel is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding beauty and stunning scenery. Having your own vehicle is the best option for getting here, as buses are infrequent, making it difficult to visit the sights without a car. Food options in the area are also very limited, so it’s best to plan ahead and travel to the small town of Tosashimizu (12 km – 15mins by car), where there are plenty of restaurants.

The Hotel

The hotel features a broad and gorgeous lobby with an incredible setting overlooking the cliffs. It consists of two buildings connected by a “tunnel”: the lower one houses the onsen, restaurant, and terrace, while the upper part includes the lobby and rooms.

Terras in the lower building

Parts of the hotel are renovated, while others are not, creating an awkward experience—at times, it feels like a 5-star hotel, and at other times, it feels like a neglected building.

Good to know

During our stay, we booked a free half-hour star gazing tour. It was a funny experience, although all explanations were in Japanese. We walked three minutes from the premises to an open space where a guide explained and showed different star constellations. Knowing how to get to the place now, you could do it yourself and use an app like Google Sky.


After thorough research via reviews from different sites, we booked the newly renovated twin or double rooms. It seems that the Japanese-style rooms are in poor condition and not advisable. We paid 23.500 yen per night for 2 people with breakfast included and booked via


For each day of your stay, you can choose between Japanese-style and Western-style breakfast, both offering plenty of fruit, vegetables, and coffee. During our 3-night stay, we always opted for the Japanese-style breakfast and were never disappointed. When the weather allowed, we enjoyed our breakfast on the wonderful terrace.


Not advisable. We reserved for one night and were very disappointed with the dinner. Despite having a wood-fired oven, they don’t know how to make pizza properly. The pizza dough was undercooked, and the wine list was overpriced. As the only dining option in the area, they definitely need to work on this.


The hotel features a single bath per gender, 2 small but impressive rotenburo’s. Overlooking the ocean and the rocks, the rotenburo provides a spectacular view. To reach the bath, you need to walk through a corridor, which adds to the anticipation. The men’s and women’s baths interchange during the morning and afternoon hours, allowing you to enjoy different views and orientations in the same day.

Conclusion & summary

We would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.

The Good

  • Setting on the edge of the rocks overlooking the ocean
  • Tasty breakfast
  • Room and room view
  • Spectacular onsen
  • Amazing terrace

The Bad

  • Dinner at the restaurant: very bad pizza and an overpriced drink list
  • Parts of the building are very old and in a bad state, especially the hallway to the onsen.
  • The hotel overall feels cold and somewhat neglected
  • Staff is okay but could be much warmer and customer oriented, compared to the standard Japanese norms.

If you keep these points in mind, you will have a really nice time!

Activities around

When staying at the hotel you can walk directly from the hotel to see Ashizuri Cape. Read the post about Ashizuri Cape for more info.

During our trip we used the hotel as a base point for car excursions around the area. We also visited the Tosashimizu and Kawajima island.
