[Gourmet by the Genkai Sea]
At dinner time, you can enjoy a variety of seasonal seafood of the Genkai Sea in buffet style, or a dish of raw fish meat chopped and arranged by skillful cooks. You can also order small dishes of seasonal cuisine and kaiseki, a traditional Japanese course dinner (inquiry is needed). The “Island”, an Italian restaurant boasting a panoramic view of the Genkai Sea is also attached to Kyukason. Their recommendation is the Italian pizza, for which even basic ingredients like oil and flour are very carefully selected. A reasonable lunch course is also available. (Open hours: 11:00-17:00).
In mornings, they have a walking tour for 30 minutes before breakfast, which gives you a nice little time spend in the nature. In April and May, you can pick new sunny oranges, and in August and September, you can try scuba diving here.
[Kyukamura Bathing Beach]
The white beach in front of the main building extends by 800 meters and it is very popular for its transparent water and gentle ripples. The sunset view beyond the small islands floating on the Genkai Sea is fabulous. Shower rooms, changing rooms, shops and a seaside pool become available in summer. The colorful cloud-shaped pool is set up on the beach and it is perfect for small kids to play safely.
