Stay at Ryugu Hotel
- Sitting along the coast of Aichi’s ocean resort town of Kira you’ll find the luxurious Ryugu Hotel and onsen. Offering unforgettable ocean-side views and both western and traditional ryokan style rooms, the hotel is suitable for all types of travellers. If you’re looking for a place to set up home base while exploring the coastal side of Nagoya, then it’s definitely worth adding this hotel to your literary. Stay at Ryugu Hotel The hotel is located in Kira, a small town that stretches along the southern point of Mikawa Bay. Founded in 1906 the town’s major source of income and economic driver is tourism and commercial fishing making it one of the best places in all of Aichi prefecture to sample some incredible, fresh local seafood. It’s a popular holiday destination for locals, but compared to other pockets of Aichi, generally quite overlooked by international travellers, spend some time getting to know this well-kept holiday secret and no doubt you’ll find it hard to leave. Stay at Ryugu Hotel The hotel’s rooms are impressive, but their most striking feature is without a doubt the large windows that overlook the neighboring ocean. As you stare out onto the seemingly infinite horizon, you’ll be able to spot Kaji Island, floating somewhere between Mikawa and Chita Bay. Although the views from the rooms are stunning all day long, as the hours pass by and the day rolls into evening, you can admire the natural light show that happens as the sun sets, painting the sky and surrounding landscape an almost psychedelic tinge of purple, orange and red. You can rent both western style rooms, and Japanese tatami mat, futon bedrooms, which typically offer more flexible sleeping options that can accommodate a number of guests.

Exploring Sakushima Island
- Sakushima is a charming art island that makes the Aichi archipelago along with Himakajima and Shinojima in the Aichi prefecture. Since 2000, a number of art installations and sculptures were designed as part of the ArtPlan21 project to encourage visitors to come and see the magnificent natural beauty of the island. It’s easily accessible from the city of Nagoya and well worth a day trip. Exploring Sakushima Island Sakushima, also known as the “island of winds” is the perfect getaway from the hectic busy life of Japan’s crowded cities. The locals call the wind from the east “Kochi” and “Maze” when it blows from the south.There are only around 300 residents, who lead an island life of catching fish and shellfish, including clams, oysters, octopus and sea cucumber as the fishing is plentiful all year round. However, it’s best to visit the island when the temperature is warm. Here visitors can find quiet beaches to stroll along and scenic views of tranquil woodland. As Sakushima is quite unspoiled by major construction, there is no public transportation. But as the island is pretty small, little more than two kilometers wide with 11.5 kilometers of coastline, visitors can rent bicycles and cars or simply walk along the broad flat streets. It’s recommended to go for the bicycle option to explore the island and cycle along the bike paths to visit the many art spots. There are also plenty of restaurants and ryokans where guests can stay to sample some of the freshest and most delicious seafood cuisine available. Exploring Sakushima Island Sakushima is inspired by the Naoshima art island and is dotted with interesting installations that enable the visitors to appreciate the island by encouraging them to explore the art as well as the island. Tourists can get a map from the Information Centre of where the art pieces are located. The site of each artwork then provides a stamp that visitors can collect. The most famous is the Ohirune House designed by Yuki Minamikawa, a cubic structure painted blacked which evokes nine different views as if from nine different windows. People can climb the ladders to see the world in an alternate way. Minamikawa also designed the East House, another installation that frames the sea and lets visitors climb on top. It’s stark white simplicity aims to dissolve into the environment without distracting the view from the natural surroundings. Exploring Sakushima Island ©NAVITIME JAPAN.

Aichi Main Areas
Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
