Shoeikan 松栄館


kc100-20181022-0012.jpg

Shoeikan was originally the annex (別館) of the Shoeikan ryokan inn opened in 1904 (Meiji 37). The inn was built for navy VIPs like Admiral Heihachiro Togo who led the Japanese navy during the Russo-Japanese War.
The ryokan's annex building was left unused and decrepit for many years and was on the verge of being torn down until a citizens group got together to clean, renovate, and preserve the building. They finally decided to make it a Western-style restaurant serving navy cuisine. It just opened on Oct. 11, 2018.
Hours
Lunch: 11:30–14:30 Dinner: 17:30–21:30

About 1 km from JR Higashi Maizuru Station. Parking available.

Yoshihara Irie Inlet 吉原入江


kc156-20181022-0271.jpg

Picturesque waterfront fishing neighborhood with boats moored right outside. Fishing village since the Edo Period. The homes used to have built-in boat garages like at Ine, but they were abolished and the boats are moored right in front instead. Located on the north end of Isazu River (伊佐津川). "Yoshihara" means reed fields, so this area used to have reed beds on marshy land. About 20-min. walk from JR Nishi-Maizuru Station (JR Maizuru Line). Map here
