Accommodation Reservations

We have information on many accommodation facilities. These include ryokans (Japanese-style inns), hotels where you can enjoy an open air bath with an ocean view and hotels near stations. San’in also has hot springs that are well-known across Japan (e.g. Kaike, Tamatsukuri and Misawa) and so is also famous as a hot spring paradise. Please enjoy a hot bath that is the pride of the San’in area in your accommodation facility. This could be in a hot spring where you can experience fireflies, fall leaves, snowy landscapes, the changing of the four seasons or the large panorama of the Sea of Japan, or one of the world’s best radium springs.
