Ine is a small fisherman's village and famous for its unique scenery with 230 boathouses lined up.

Lunch in Ine

The Sushi in Ine and Amanohashidate is absolutely delicious. I cannot find more delicious seafood than here even in Japan.

In addition that they have clean sea and rich fishing grounds, vegetables such as rice, onion and Japanese local vegetables are so delicious thanks to the rich nature and abundant water.

In Ine, usually 3 to 5 restaurants open for lunch, so sometimes you have to wate especially in consecutive holidays.

For the big group tour, Yoshinoya, Restaurant Funaya and Wadatsumi are available and can be booked.

Dinner in Ine

You should be careful that there are a few restaurants where you can have dinner in Ine. In addition to that, only a few accommodations in Ine serve the dinner.

So you have to check the business day of restaurants.

For the big group tour, you'd better to stay in Aburaya or Swiss village hotel which have dinner plan and capacity for big group.

Stay around Ine

There are guesthouses of boathouses in Ine. If you have the money and the room is available, it would be best to stay there. But now it becomes so popular that it's difficult to get a reservation even 2 months in advance.

On the other hand, there are many accommodations which have good hospitality, meal, facilities and affordable price other than boathouse. You can enough enjoy unique mood in Ine even with staying there, so I recommend them if you don't stick to staying in guesthouse of boathouse.

For the big group tour, there are only 2 hotels (Aburaya and Swiss village hotel) which have capacity for that around Ine.

Swiss village hotel is typical mountain side hotel in Japan. Its meal uses local vegetables and has beautiful landscape from top of mauntain.

Aburaya is typical "Ryokan" (Japanese style Inn) and has hot spring but it's expensive.

Day3 Yuhigaura

Yuhigaura and western side of Tango peninsula is popular marine resort in North Kansai Area.

For Japanese Cyclists, the seaside road from Ine to Yuhigaura is the most attractive course for cycling, because it has the beautiful landscape, few car and trafic signal.

Depending on your level of cycling, it will take 4 to 5 hours.

Lunch spots along the course

On the western side of the Tango Peninsula, there are only about one restaurant per 10 km.

There are many delicious restaurants and restaurants with good views, but it is better to check the business days before going.

For the big group, you have to book beforehand.

Stay around Yuhigaura

Yuhigaura has been Japanese typical marrine resort enjoying swiming in summer, hot spring and crab in winter, so there are many big hotels with enough capacity. Except for Bon Festival and Golden Week, you will have no trouble finding accommodation.

Kasho-en has delicious meals, rich room and its price is reasonable. Especially for the big group, this hotel is recommended.

Day4 Kinosaki

Kinosaki hot spring is the most popular tourism spot in North Kansai Area. About 2 million tourists visit annually.

Kinosaki hot spring has history of over 1300 years and famous for the origin of "Strolling the town in Yukata" with visiting 7 hot springs and many attractive shops.

Kinosaki is not good at for cycling but it's better to walk, so you should park your bicycle at public bicycle parking or hotel.

Staying in Kinosaki is very attractive but the accommodation fee is very expensive, sometimes it becomes 2 or 3 times higher than staying in the Toyoka or Yuhigaura.

Especially for the big group, it becomes so fiercely competitive. If you don't stick to "strolling the town in Yukata", it's better to stay in Toyoka city which is the biggest business town around there.

It takes only 10 min by train or 30 min by bicycle to Toyoka from Kinosaki and also Toyoka has good restaurants.

Route to Kinosaki from Yuhigaura

There is a mountain pass with a height of 120m between Yuhigaura and Kinosaki, but the rest of the road is very flat and easy to run.

Actually local bicycle race is held around Kinosaki every year.

Above all, "Genbudo" is located between Kinosaki and Toyoka and has a majestic natural formations, so I recommend it.

Stay around Kinosaki

There are many accommodation in Kinosaki. If you are small group, have enough budget and can book well in advance, you'd better to stay in Kinosaki. Above all, I recommend "Koyado-Enn" that has delicious local beef (Tajima beef) meal and is fiendly to cyclists because the manager loves cycling.

If you want reasonable fee, I recommend staying in buisiness hotel in Toyoka.

Day5 Depart for next distination

Kinosaki has been the popular sightseeing spot for over 1000 thousand years same as Amanohashidate, so it has relatively good access to big cities.

It takes 2 to 3 hours to Kyoto or Osaka by express train and 3 hours by express bus.
