This time we will introduce “Ryokan Murobe” in Shirahama-cho, Wakayama Prefecture.
What is it that you seek in Shirahama outside of summer? Seafood? Nanki-Shirahama Adventure World? Sake?
↑Of course, the ups are important, but this time we are particular about the hot spring. This time, we will report on the inn that is perfect for the project to heal your fatigue with a hot spring called “nectar water,” which is one of the “three oldest hot springs in Japan” and has outstanding effects on beautiful skin.

The ryokan is located in Shirahama-cho, Wakayama Prefecture.
The ryokan is located in Shirahama-cho, Wakayama Prefecture, one of the best resort areas in the Kansai region. The blue sea, white sandy beaches, and gentle waves make it a popular place for swimming, and Adventure World, Shirahama’s iconic theme park, is a popular tourist attraction. Here, visitors can interact with a large number of animals and enjoy powerful shows. There are also many spots scattered throughout the park where you can watch the sunset in a romantic atmosphere, making it a very popular spot for couples and families alike.
Being a town by the sea, there is no shortage of seafood (snacks for drinking), which is essential for old men, and everyone in Kansai loves this town.
The hot spring resort stands on a hill overlooking the coastline to the west. If the weather is favorable, it can be a spectacular spot for viewing one of the best sunsets in the Kansai region.

The last road to the ryokan is quite steep, so if you are not confident in the horsepower of your car, you may want to consider taking the train or other means.
Walking around the inn
Ocean view outside the window, but not
Rooms are self-service with futon mattresses, which is a cost-effective way to stay. I thought I would be able to see the ocean view because of the elevation.
This photo was taken from an alley with a great view right in front of the ryokan, but the view was very disappointing because it was blocked by a hotel just in front of the beach. However, it is a short walk to the edge of the surf, so if you want to see the ocean, you can do so to your heart’s content.
Sumptuous abalone for dinner!
The main course was abalone shabu-shabu.
Appetizers, beautifully arranged around seafood, and very tasty
Tria ez nama.
Oysters, representative of seafood.
Kozagawa watercress, meat, and a small pot of fish.
The first item of abalone was sauteed in Western style.
Kiddo, Minakata and Kinokuniya Bunzaemon. These are rather generic, but representative of Kishu sake.
The main dish, abalone shabu shabu, was served in a lightly seasoned broth. The abalone is lightly shabu-shabu in a lightly seasoned broth.
There are two kinds of sauce: the first is sea urchin ponzu.
The second is the liver soy sauce.
The texture of the abalone is very tender, and the aroma and flavor of the seafood are irresistible.
The last drink is an ordinary sake at first glance, but when you pour it into the bowl, you will be surprised.
But when you pour it into the bowl, you will be amazed. It turns into a sherbet-like liquid mixed with ice. It is a drink that truly deserves the name “mizore-shu.
They say that sweet food is a separate stomach, but the dessert fills even the other part of the stomach, literally making you full.
Nectar water is excellent for beautiful skin
This facility is located in the hot spring resort area that includes this ryokan.
The smell of the hot spring is quite strong, but it is also a sign that the hot spring water is still as fresh as ever.
Since I couldn’t take pictures of the inside of the onsen, I borrowed the following from the ryokan’s website.
There are both indoor and outdoor hot spring baths, and the water that makes you feel smooth when you soak in it is truly a supreme time to be in the hot spring.
Breakfast is nothing fancy, but it’s hearty and filling!
Breakfast. Like dinner, it is served in the dining room, but you can have it in a private room.
There is nothing fancy, but it is a heartwarming breakfast.
Grilled fish is one of the breakfast dishes that I have an irresistible craving for. You can grill it to your liking.
Miso soup warms you up in the morning when it is still a little chilly.
As we get older, we cannot eat as much as we used to in the morning, so this kind of simple and warm breakfast is very heartwarming.
That’s all for this time.
The “nectar of nectar” is a hot water for beautiful skin, and of course, the effect of smooth skin can be seen when you soak in it.
Personally, I feel it has a relaxing effect. I want you to enjoy the feeling of paradise that makes you want to soak two or three times, or rather I want to go to the hot spring again.
Speaking of Shirahama travel, the main thing is to go swimming in the summer, but the seafood you can taste by daring to miss the season is also excellent.
Since it has good access to Adventure World, it is also a recommended ryokan as a base for sightseeing in spring and fall.
