This hot spring resort takes pride in its open-air bath, which offers sweeping views of the Sea of Japan. The evening sun creates a moving tableau as it sinks into the sea. The resort has ""funeburo,"" a bath based on the motif of Japanese sandfish fishing boats, as well as ""iwaburo,"" a healing open-air bath that exudes a sense of nature, both of which overlook the sea. The resort is also equipped with a bedrock bath and sauna.
Once your body has been warmed up from inside, enjoy a meal of fresh local seafood. Japanese sandfish (hatahata), which the resort takes its name from, is a local specialty of Akita that tastes good either simmered or grilled.
In addition to the Western-style and Japanese-style bedrooms, another striking feature of Hatahata-kan is its trailer accommodations. Enjoy a barbecue followed by a hot spring bath, then go to bed in an extraordinary trailer bedroom—this makes for a unique and fun holiday.
