Ibusuki Iwasaki Hotel (指宿いわさきホテル)


Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

A hotel located a five-minute drive from JR Ibusuki Station. This good, old fashioned style resort hotel has recently garnered attention in part due to the fact that all of its rooms have an ocean view. Facilities include a natural hot spring outdoor bath as well as Ibusuki’s hot spring heated sand baths which are rarely found in the world. The hotel is also replete with pools, tennis courts, and a variety of other amusement facilities, making it a fun destination for adults and children alike. The hotel’s sand baths are also open to non-guests. After a fun-filled day of indoor and outdoor activities, visitors can enjoy the tastes of Kagoshima in the hotel’s restaurants. You can take in a view of the moon reflecting off the waters of Kinko Bay along with a dinner of Japanese, Chinese, or Western dishes in the Main Dining Room restaurant. The hotel’s relaxing cafes are also recommended.

          Kagoshima Areas


          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
