Interaction with Guests
I will happily answer any and all questions via email throughout your plans and stay. As this is a family venture, my mum Kumiko and brother Jiro will be on site to help with your arrival as well.
If just looking at the beautiful ocean view off your balcony isn't enough, the area has an amazing array of attractions to keep you entertained. Moments from your front door is a lovely swimming beach, round the corner is a great market with fresh produce and a great variety of fish. Local attractions include a big water park (summer only), horse riding club, SCUBA diving (summer only), many good fishing spots and a cycling course along with beach.
Toto ichiba (Infront of apartment ) is good place to have break fast and lunch .They have cafe, restaurant, and BBQ area.
You can not bring food into their BBQ area but you can buy most anything for a Japanese BBQ on site. It is 300 yen to use the BBQ area per person.
You must try this once, it is very traditional and exciting. For dinner time I recommend you to go the Japanese restaurant called "Senjyoujiki Gyoan"
It's 4.5km away from apartment so you would need to use a car or bicycle.
Once you get in the gate Kimono lades welcome you immediately. Full course starts from 4,000 yen.
Dinner is great but my favorite thing is their beautiful gardens and interior of the restaurant.
You won't be disapointed.

Thank you very much writing for us your fantastic review.
That theme park is call "Space World"
It's not "Space Mountain"
We recommend for our guets to go there spescially if you have kids.
Thank you so much to choose our place to stay.
We are always very welcome you guys again.
