Ultramarine visions from the cliffs of Ako: the Ginpaso hotel
The view from Ako Point
Standing on the shores of the Seto Inland Sea, Ako City in Hyogo is renowned as the original home of Japan’s famous “forty-seven ronin.” Ginpaso is a hotel perched on a cliff at Ako Misaki (roughly, “Ako Point”), offering stunning views of the sea to visitors arriving from all over Japan and around the world.
A spacious living room complete with comfortable wooden furniture is include in the exclusive “Tenku” room.
Another feature of the “Tenku” room: a private open-air onsen.
“Iwami no Yu,” another open-air onsen, is adorned with natural stone for a luxurious feel. The hot spring water, incidentally, is excellent for neuralgia, rheumatism, and other ailments.
