Welcome to KANGETSU-AN Shintoyo

Feb 14, 2024

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.
