waterside cottage Heron


You can expect a warm welcome at this waterside hotel and restaurant facing Kumihama Bay. They use seasonal, local fish, fruits and vegetables to produce a simple menu that anyone can enjoy.

The deserts are also made by hand, and we recommend the traditional English cake, Victoria sponge. Using a homemade jam made with local Kumihama fruits, and whipped cream sandwiched between two layers of sponge cake. Other seasonal sweets are available too.

Inside the restaurant they have a small shop selling some of their produce.


Please make dinner reservations at least one day in advance.



Cottage Lunch Set: The fish or meat main comes with soup, bread and an after meal drink.
