Vacation Rental Kangetsuan Shintoyo Official

Enjoy the beauty of the Seto Inland Sea and the historic harbor town of Mitarai in comfort and luxury.

A listed historic period building, Shintoyo was a traditional inn that operated from the late Edo period (1603-1868) through to the 1930s.

We have transformed this beautiful historic building into a high-end private lodge and restaurant. We cater exclusively for discerning guests who want to enjoy the tranquility of the Seto Inland Sea in comfort and luxury.

The pillars, beams, and lattices are etched with the stories and experiences from over 150 years of history.
Sleep as the the moonlight dances on the gentle waves outside your window and wake up to the morning sun as it rises above Kannonzaki peninsula across the water. The fresh sea breeze, the sound of waves lapping the coastline, the birds singing in the mountains, ship engines chattering in the distance all combine to create an unforgettable experience.

So many of the great figures from Japanese history came and fell in love with Mitarai over the centuries.
Now it is your turn to come to Mitarai and experience an unforgettable stay.

Gaze out at the Kannonzaki Peninsula stretching out into the Seto Inland Sea.

The bright blue expanse of sea and sky stretching into the distance will take your breath away. Even on overcast days, the view is spectacular with the islands seeming to float on a soft carpet of mist.
The view from the window is a shifting canvas. Small fishing boats head out for their catch, birds dance in the air, and large ships slowly pass by in the distance in front of the impressive Kurushima Kaikyo Bridge.

When you stay at the Shintoyo, time slows down to a crawl, allowing you to savor each moment.

Recline on the sofa and appreciate the passage of time – an activity rarely afforded in the modern era.
