This is not an exiting urban area. You can hear waves from the beach, see tons of stars at night. A Bus stop nearby. Basically please take local bus, we will send you time table and location map. When we have time, like when we do not have other guests, we sometimes come to pick you up so please ASK. This is a guest house what we call Minsyuku in Japan, only for two groups, maximum 99.8 m3 large, 60 years old, with renovation day by day almost only by host, property and guest manager, Taka.
Price: 2 guests included
Looking for anything special?
Now then I recommend you island hopping in Urato islands.
This room is 16.5m2 large with a personal sink, refrige, hair dryer, rental towel, free wifi connection, disposable toothbrush, and shampoo. Couples OK.
Urato islands consists of four small islands where they fish for their life. They are parts of Matsushima. We have over 260 islands in Matsushima, but you can step into a few islands among them. Urato islands are one of them.
I have hosted over 2000 guests from overseas so far, and everyone says that he or she wants to go to Matsushima here.
Well, people thinks of Matsushima, Matsushima Kaigan station when it comes to Matsushima, but actually these islands belong to three different towns and a city, Higashimatsushima(town), Matsushima(town), Shichigahama(town), and city of Shiogama.
Sight seeing boat tour from Matsushima port near Matsushima kaigan station is also nice, but please be noted that you can never step into islands, you have to stay in a boat for 55 minutes. But as for Uratos, you can enjoy island hopping tour from Shiogama port(Marine Gate Shiogama). Its very near from the accommodation.
※Please be noted that you have to
bring shrimp chips with you before you get onboard. You can feed it to sea gulls directly from your hands. You hold up shrimp chips, sea gulls will soon snatch shrimp chips from your finger. do not feed your finger.....
This is a guest room with 16.5 m2, with another shared space for dining and drinking, with microwave electrical pot, cup board for your cups and dishes. Restroom and bathroom are to be shared. we have another guest room for maximum 5 guests, but this room is up to 4.
ONLY steps to the beach called "foreign beach" as we have foreign village called Takayama nearby. So many missionaries come to visit for summer vacation and some are living all the year long.
Please do not step into OUR private room.
We have two or three separate Japanese style guests rooms with brand new tatamis, and each room is with personal sink in it but a room upstairs.
If your are thinking of staying here several days in a low,
you have to buy something to eat, drink, etc before you leave JR Tagajyo station.
We do not have grocery stores near by.
There is a coffee shop which is open for 7am, you have to walk around 10minutes, but you can have breakfast in ocean front seats.
I was born and raised in Sapporo, Hokkaido, the north part of Japan. After I graduated from high school I went to the state, lone star state, Huston, Texas for English study.
First two months in Texas and then moved to Los Angeles, California.
I stayed there totally around two years. It was 1996, so it is over 20 years ago now.
I am running this accommodation with license and I have other job Monday tru Friday 7am to 7pm. I live in the part of this accommodation in summer, but I may live in the City called Shiogama near from this accomodation in Winter.
This area is called Takayama, the three biggest secret foreign village for summer in Japan. One is Karuizawa, the other is Lake Nosiri, they are both in Nagano Pref., but the other is here in Miyagi Pref.
About this area.
This area is not an exiting urban area.
This is a place to stay relaxed, and a place to enjoy marine sports. I realy enjoy surfing life here along the coast line. As our accommodation is located in the cost line, someone may think that it may be dangerous when we have earthquake. But this accommodation is located at the top of a small hill along the very steap slope, so this place is authorised to be a temporary evacuation site by this town called Shichigahama.
We may pick you up at the nearest JR station when we have time so please ask us when it is avilable, if you are taking JR pass for your trip.
Be very careful in the names of JR lines around this area. You may see four or even more names of JR lines.
JR Senseki Line.
This line conects SENDAI, a little urban area, to the amaging city called Ishinomaki, which is famous for Manga. FOR OUR PICKING YOU UP, please take this line and come to JR Tagajyo station, or Geba station. There are starbucs coffee in JR Tagajyo station. Tagajyo station will be better on weekdays. I prefer JR Geba station on weekends on the other hand.
You can also take this train to JR Matsushima kaigan station and Ishinomaki station. We have over 260 islands around this area, if you want to take sight seeing boat trip around these islands, you take JR matsushima kaigan station.
If you want to visit cat island, take Ishinomaki station. And find someone there. USUALLY there are someone with big bags who visits the island Called Tashirojima. Take taxi together there. It works.
JR Senzan Line.
This line conects Sendai to Yamagata. If you want to enjoy hiking in Yamadera, its an old temple in Yamagata pref., take this line from Sendai station to Yamadera station.
JR THOHOKU LINE
This line conects Shirakawa in FUKUSHIMA and Morioka in IWATE.
I have never used this line, but it is faster than trains in JR SENSEKI LINE. There is a station called JR Shiogama station and KOKUFU Tagajyo in this line, which are sometimes confusing because we have HOSHIOGAMA STATION and TAGAJYO STATION in JR SENSEKI LINE.
Abukuma Kyuko Line
The Cheapest Way To Travel Japan
JR pass is the cheapest way maybe, but it is sometimes hard to travel all the way in trains. I have several guests so far who took ferry from Sendai international port to Nagoya international port, or Sendai international port to Tomakomai in Hokkaido. It is also cheap, and I usually take this when i go back to Hokkaido. You can also bring your rentaled car, so you can sleep during your trip. Be careful in the season of tyhoon, it sometimes cancels the cruse.
We have two separate guest rooms, one is for 4 guests, and the other is for 5 guests. We can accommodate totally 9 adults. For kids please ask.
At this time we do not adopt dormitory style because we regard it very important to meet and talk with each guests each time, but if you want to book a room more than 5, we can do so if we have enough space, so please ASK us.
