Special

Every spawning season which starts around May, everyone's favorite loggerhead turtles start arriving at Senri-no-hama Beach of Minabe, the only coastal route of Kumano Kodo.
Once "spawning" reaches its end in August, "hatching" starts from early August and continues through September.

Coral reef
protection
activities

Blessed with the Kuroshio current, the sea of Minabe features a distinctive and dynamic submarine topography with rare fish from both, the tropical and temperate zones. This unique environment of the Minabe’s sea creates wonderful coral colonies that attract a lot of diving tourists throughout a year.

Sea turtle
protection
activities

As beautiful beaches and food sources essential for spawning vanish as results of reclamation and pollution, the number of loggerhead turtles landing on shore has also been decreasing throughout Japan to the point where the turtles were designated as an endangered species.

In Minabe, the largest spawning ground of loggerhead turtles in mainland Japan, we strive to protect the beautiful environment of Senri-no-hama Beach and ensure that newly hatched baby turtles can leave for the sea safely.

Part of the hotel profits and sales of sea turtle goods from the hotel's shop are donated as funding for sea turtle protection activities.

Stay at KISHUJI MINABE and join the effort to protect sea turtles.
