Sumihei Ryokan was founded in 1868 in the quiet fishing village of Taiza in the Tango region of the northern part of Kyoto Prefecture. Steeped in natural beauty, this location has long been renowned for its gourmet crabs, known as Taiza-gani. Sumihei Ryokan has continuously welcomed numerous guests for almost a century and a half.
Our facilities have been steadily renewed in recent years for the continued comfort and enjoyment of our guests.We welcome our guests with "omotenashi" hospitality and memorable meals prepared with the best ingredients from land and sea.
President, Sumihei Ryokan.
With Taiza-gani crabs in winter, abalone, lobster, sea bream, sea urchins and more, every Sumihei meal is a delight, made with the most select ingredients.
The simple dishes of a fishing village, which evoke and yet surpass the warm ambience of Japanese "home cooking," are always popular.
Sumihei is located less than an hour from Amanohashidate one of Japan's three most famous scenic views and the town of Ine, another popular sightseeing spot, known for its traditional boathouses.
