Tips By Travelers and Locals


Oguni-machi in Kumamoto, there's a waterfall named Nabe-ga Taki. The scene of water falling widely is like a white curtain, and creates a mysterious scenery. Furthermore, it's a rare waterfall that you can see the opposite side.


Here's a spiritual power spot that is said to have divine grace for matrimony. Lanterns standing in a line and staircases are overgrown with moss to envelop the approach in solemn atmosphere.


The room condenses all desires that people have for a hidden hotel from the bustle of big cities! The inside and outside baths with two appeals of stylish and rustic use hot spring water directly from the source without circulation. Soaking in a private onsen, you can see the supreme scenery of the setting sun over the Amakusa-nishi seashore.


The corridor to the statue of Holy Mother And Child, a passage with bump-out windows of boathouse structure, and a slope surrounded with evergreens seen especially in Amakusa. Here is a path going to the dining room and rooms in the detached building. It's the same as the path five great writers like Kitahara Hakushu walked, and the hotel's name (Gosoku-no kutsu means 5 pairs of shoes) is derived from that. Just walking around, I feel the nostalgia of Amakusa.


Beautiful, that adjective is apt for this historical architecture.


Breakfast at a scenic terrace, an optional obento (lunch in a box) to bring together for a history exploration drive, and dinner at an elaborate private room. All of the three meals use the locally grown foodstuffs such as the seafood in sea of Amakusa, chicken named 'Amakusa Daio' and also the pork. These menus have a kind of stories and entertain both our eyes and mouths!


From Mt.Daikanbo, you can command a view of Aso mountains. Many people come to enjoy the fine view from here.


Shirakawa headspring is especially beautiful and much water springs out. You can not only enjoy the mysterious scenery, but also you can take the water in your bottle.


Kikuchi Valley is known as its beautiful water, waterfalls and a good place for forest bathing. Furthermore, many people come to refresh themselves and enjoy taking beautiful pictures.
