Oarai Yamaguchi-ro (Oarai Town)
Yamaguchi-ro Hotel is located in the small seaside town of Oarai, a 30 minute drive from Mito City and a popular tourist destination in itself with attractions such as Aquaworld Aquarium and Oarai Sunbeach.
The hotel is surrounded by pine trees so guests can gaze out at views of the Pacific Ocean while enjoying the sea breeze and scent of fresh pine.
Dining options include ‘ushio-yaki’, grilled fresh seafood, shellfish and Hitachi Wagyu beef, and ‘Kaiseki’, a traditional Japanese course meal featuring a range of seafood dishes. During the Winter months (mid-November – late March), the local speciality of anglerfish hot pot is also offered. What’s more, there’s no need to stay to sample these dining options – non-staying guests can also dine at Yamaguchi-ro.
Yamaguchi-ro is also a top pick for any golfers thanks to its great location just 3 minutes walk from the prestigious Oarai Golf Club.
