ホテル岩戸 (Hotel Iwato)
|7:30 till 22:00
We spent the first night of our Kagoshima trip in Hotel Iwato in Makurazaki. This town is famous for a kind of fish called bonito. In Japan the fish is usually smoked and cut very thinly. You may have seen it as seasoning on top of your okonomiyaki. From our hotel we could see the smoke coming from the bonito factories in town.
The bath at Hotel Iwato was not very special. There was an indoor bath and a small rotenburo. The onsen is also open to the public.
This is the view from the hotel. The smoke from the bonito factories is blown to the sea.
The indoor bath. I didn't get a good picture of the rotenburo.
Bonito shop at the local fish market.
