The Park Hotel Jodogahama in Miyako 浄土ヶ浜パークホテル
The hotel is situated in a park, on top of a hill surrounded by trees and greenery, overlooking the famous Jodogohama beach in Miyako. The architecture is somewhat traditional but still modern, with a simple but elegant and graceful interior.
We had a beer in the magnificent lobby and huge glass platforms pointing to the sea. The views definitely made up for the high expectations we had over the open-air bath, more hidden among trees.
We had a fantastic superior quality buffet-style, evening meal and breakfast both. Everything was fresh and tasty, the service impeccable.
Although some rooms have more direct view of the bay, they all overlook the beautiful trees and the park. There is nothing more around your than nature. We slept in a traditional Japanese room with tatami beds. Warm, cosy and quiet.
We arrived at the hotel by foot after our walk from Nakanohama along the Michinoku Coastal Trail. The combination of the hike and staying in such an elegant and relaxing place really made our day memorable. Check our dedicated post for the hike.
The hotel offers a shuttle bus for pick-up and drop-off to Miyako Station twice a day and takes about 10 minutes. There is also a regular bus bringing you to Jodogohama hourly.
