We took the free Shuttle Bus from JR Shirahama Train Station and were dropped off at Hotel Sanrakuso. Hotel Hanatemari is an annex to Hotel Sanrakuso. Check-in was done at Hotel Sanrakuso. Check-out at Hotel Hanatemari. There is a walkway on the 4th floor linking the 2 hotels.
The rooms are Japanese style where you sit and sleep on the floor. The location was ideal. It was just across the beach and the room faced the ocean. The bus stop was at the entrance to the hotel. The hotel is built on higher ground so there's a bit of a climb. You can enter via Hotel Sanrakuso or Hotel Hanatemari.
Breakfast was bread and eggs with coffee.
This hotel does not have a restaurant. You would need to book during the day if you wish to eat in the restaurant at Hotel Sanrakuso. They do not entertain walk-in guests. There is a Fisherman Complex and another Japanese restaurant nearby for meals. Ask the reception and they will recommend these 2 places and assist with directions.
The beach was lovely. Smooth, white, squeaky sand. Sandanbeki and Senjoguchi were worth visiting.
If you wish to take the free morning shuttle bus to the Train Station or Tore Tore Market you would need to book with the Reception the shuttle bus. The bus also makes a stop at Adventure World, if you inform the driver of your requested drop off point.More
