Get up close and personal with Amanohashidate at Monjusou, where all the guest rooms are designed for the best view possible overlooking the Amanohashidate sandbar with its pine trees. The story of this building follows the history of Amanohashidate: since 1690 it was known as the Kanshichi Tea House, which sold famous "wisdom rice cake" sweets in front of the Chion-ji Temple gates. Throughout its 13 generations, this ryokan has been called by various names, including Taikyorou, Shourotei, and now Monjusou. There is plenty to see in the area surrounding the inn, including many famous historical temples and shrines, such as Chion-ji Temple, Motoise Kono Shrine, Nariai-ji Temple, and Amanohashidate Shrine, as well as places to view Amanohashidate, like Amanohashidate Viewland and Kasamatsu Park. In the summer, you can also enjoy Amanohashidate Beach. Also very popular here is the ishigama (stone oven) cuisine that showcases the fresh and seasonal Tango produce.
