Hirado castle stay
Long, long ago, Hirado Island was the front door into Japan.
The flow of people, history and culture
makes it evident that these doors opened up to a new era.
And now, the light of our era shines upon this castle.
If you look out into the distance across the waters,
you find traces of our ancestors, the dreams of westerners when they first set foot on the island,
and learn the unique values that were once forgotten.
This mystifying castle was where different cultures were first exposed.
The doors of the ancient castle are opening out into the future,
opening once again for us and future generations.
An island so luring is like its very own country.
It excites me and awakens my adventurous spirit.
The luxurious spaces are inherited through the aesthetics from the Momoyama through Edo periods.
You will feel right at home during your stay, and will truly satisfy your intellectual curiosity.
Enjoy a full-course meal cooked with a selection of the finest local seasonal ingredients by you designated chef.
