"KAIYU" is located in between SHIMANTO river and ASHIZURI cape, and just in front of us, the most beautiful Ohki Beach is there. We have two facilities, one for ONSEN (Hot spring) and the other for condominium although we are open for one night stay. We value simplicity and the power of nature. You will find the great power of mountain, ocean, sun and the wind at KAIYU, those are the boons for us, all the human beings. We decided to live close to nature, and also try to offer the experience to our guest to enjoy Japanese style simple, sustainable life in the countryside.
"Su" in Japanese has meaning of simple, no decoration, being yourself etc. No make up, no shoes nor socks, skin diving, and sustainable lifestyle. We are trying to become a place where our guest can be "yourself".
We Japanese had been cherished the nature and appreciated the boons of nature for a long time. Now, we are losing this precious perspective and heading for "richness" without thinking what is "rich" for you. I always ask myself, what is the real affluent life to me, and what we should leave to our children. Those are very simple, root question we all should think about. We appreciate technology and also appreciate nature. We want to find the best valance of those to create the sustainable lifestyle in Japan.
We believes what you eat is what you are. TOSASHIMIZU, our village is blessed with mild nature so we can produce lots of powerful foods around here. 70-80% of our foods are local products, and we'll cook it in a simple way, you will enjoy Japanese home cooking. To enjoy the meal completely, we encourage you to have a dinner with all our guest at one big table at least one time so that we can get to know each other and become one big family.

Skin diving, basket ball, playing at Ocean
I realized I like to serve people and treat people when I helped my dad's work who run the vacation condominium when I was in elementary school. After the school, I went to America for two years to learn agriculture and English, and after I returned to Japan, I join a school where I can learn professional services. I have worked for many resort hotels in Osaka, Ishigaki Island in Japan and Indonesia, then came back to my home town Oki beach to take over this place.
