Our sentiments
The three-story building located by the waterside features 10 western-style rooms, a pizzeria, and a lobby lounge with a vaulted ceiling.
Rooms are decorated with natural furnishings that are in harmony with the sound of the river, the aroma of the trees, and the presence of the forest,
creating a comfortable space for our guests.
Enjoy a momentary out-of-the-ordinary experience away from the hustle and bustle of daily life in the city at a waterfront lodge tucked away in the headwaters of the Shimanto River.


  • Nametoko Gorge
    A giant canyon stretching in the upstream from the Meguro River, a tributary of the Shimanto River. A smooth granite riverbed that has been washed down by erosion is a unique characteristic of the canyon, and visitors can see the beautiful sight of clear water flowing endlessly over the incredible rock faces called "Senjoshiki" and "Deai-name". The Yukiwa Waterfall, which slides majestically down the slope of the huge monolith, is a symbol of the Nametoko Gorge and has been selected as one of the "100 Best Waterfalls in Japan”.

  • Shimanto River
    The Shimanto River is selected as one of the "100 famous waters" as well as Japan's 100 unexplored regions. It is also called "one of the three clearest streams in Japan" along with the Kakita and Nagara Rivers, because there are no large-scale dams constructed on the mainstream. The Shimanto River is famous for its "Chinka-kyo" or bridges built on the river that are not susceptible to damage by flooding. There are 22 bridges on the main stream and 47 more on its tributary rivers, which weaves a tranquil landscape surrounded by peaceful mountain ranges.
  • Ashizuri-Uwakai National Park
    Ashizuri-Uwakai National Park is characterized by its unique landscape consisting of coastal and inland areas with mountains that are over 1,000 meters high. The Ashizuri area has a series of sheer cliffs with coastal terraces and is home to the subtropical marine life and corals that are being nurtured by the Kuroshio Current. There are many wild animals such as Japanese macaques and Japanese deer, and Birou Island off the shore of Kashiwa Island is a breeding ground for the great sandpiper, and other birds such as Japanese murrelets, cormorants, and gray-faced buzzards can be spotted along the coast.
