Kashikojima Island is surrounded by the natural abundance and scenic beauty of Ago Bay, one of the finest sights in Japan. Close to the great Shinto shrine of Ise Jingu, the spiritual home of the Japanese people, this is a special place, where time seems to stand still. Our little hotel started out as a restaurant, but has become not just a place to savor fine food, but a place to stay and relax — a destination.
In our restaurant, we put the customer first, and the hospitality we provide in our hotel reflects the same principle. We look forward to welcoming you, and will do everything we can to make your stay pleasurable and memorable, and offer you a unique experience.
The ancient kingdom of Ise is described in the Nihon Shoki, Japan’s oldest historical record, as umashi kuni (a beautiful land). The Shima area is renowned for its produce; in ancient times it was a miketsu-kuni sending offerings of foodstuffs to the Imperial household and court. Though our menus center on French cuisine, we are not bound by a single culinary tradition, but let our imagination run free in devising the finest dishes for our guests.
Serving ormers, sea bass, rock oysters, tiger prawns, through the summer, and spiny lobster and puffer fish in autumn and winter, the restaurant uses local produce wherever possible, but thanks to our extensive personal connections among food producers, we are also able to source the finest foodstuffs from all over Japan.
The restaurant has one main and six private dining rooms, allowing guests to enjoy dinner and breakfast in private. The beautiful views of Ago Bay and warmth of the interior design, making extensive use of wood, combine to create a calm and restful atmosphere.
The hotel has eight guest rooms, four in the main building, and four in the annex. The interior design is simple, leading the eye straight out to the view of Ago Bay, and each room is furnished differently, creating a unique atmosphere.
Every guest room comes with its own hot spring bath, and there is also an open-air bath that can be reserved. Each bath offers a view across Ago Bay, and at night, a flame light creates a magical atmosphere. The water comes from a hypotonic low-alkaline low-temperature hot spring, highly effective in the relief of neuralgia, excessive sensitivity to cold, and fatigue.
