Because Amakusa Island in Kyushu is the western-most point of the Japanese archipelago, one faces the distant Asian continent when looking across the East China Sea.
One can sense an air of foreignness about the atmosphere of Gosoku no kutsu, perhaps due to its geographic location. The ocean is colored a golden hue as the sun sets in the west, creating an exotic evening experience with the glow of the Villa in the darkness and restaurant surrounded by tones of deep green.
While soaking in the hot waters in the outdoor garden bath or enjoying a glass of champagne absorbed by the dark sea waters, guests will find the aggressive neo-ryokan style of Ishiyama appealing.
