Hotel and Resorts KYOTO-MIYAZU sits atop a small hill on the Kurita Peninsula and overlooks Miyazu Bay and Amanohashidate—one of Japan’s three most famous scenic views. From February to mid-May you can pick strawberries at the hotel’s own strawberry greenhouse, Royal Strawberry Park. The main sightseeing locations in the area are Amanohashidate View Land (about 20 minutes by car), and Kasamatsu Park (35 minutes by car), where people traditionally turn their backs to Amanohashidate and bend over to view the amazing landform from between their legs, so that it looks like a bridge to heaven (this position is called "matanozoki"). Also about an hour away by car are the "funaya" boathouses of Ine, which are designated as Traditional Buildings Important for Preservation. As for guest rooms, you can choose from Western, Japanese, or Japanese-Western mix style rooms, all with ocean views and well-equipped for families. For food, the seasonal Japanese, Western, and Chinese-style buffet is the hotel's specialty, but there are also crab or yellowtail fish kaiseki (formally arranged course with seasonal vegetables) plans available. There is also a restaurant with authentic Japanese, Chinese, and French cuisine. The hotel is equipped with a public bath and sauna, as well as an open-air bath which uses local Miyazu hot spring water.
