Hotel Urashima is a famous hotel in Nachi-Katsuura town. The best hot spring inn in the town can be reached by a dedicated ferry or shuttle bus. Built on the vast, scenic grounds of the Noroshi peninsula, the hotel comprises of four buildings, the Mountaintop Building (Yamagamikan), the Sunrise Building (Nisshokan), the Water’s Edge Building (Nagisakan) and the Main Building, each with views of the sun setting behind the mountains of Kumano. One of its attractions is that guests can enjoy a spa tour of various, top-quality hot springs right within the hotel’s domain, starting with the Boki-do cave bath which literally translates to “the cave that makes you forget about home” and was named so by Lord Yorimichi Tokugawa who found the hot spring so comforting that it made him not want to return home. After enjoying a tour of the hot springs to their hearts’ content, guests can indulge in a variety of buffet meals using Nachi-Katsuura’s local ingredients such as raw tuna or kaiseki cuisine (traditional multi-course meal) prepared by the head chef. Hotel Urashima has a long history with Nachi-Katsuura and is an inn that every visitor to the area should stay at at least once.
