Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Atami: ocean views and family fun

27 Oct 2017 in In immersion

Welcome to the family-friendly resort with a clifftop setting – and the best views of Atami’s celebrated fireworks.


The vantage point offered by Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Atami’s hilltop setting is spectacular. From the central Activity Lounge, you’ll gaze down onto the vast Pacific Ocean, its waves crashing rhythmically against the rocks of Sagami bay.

In good weather, the Boso and Miura peninsulas are clearly visible to the east and, below, the famed geisha city of Atami sprawls out into the verdant hills and along the coastline.

Your eyes will be drawn to this ocean panorama as soon as you enter the lobby area. But, if you have kids, the first thing they’ll see is the giant climbing wall on one side of the vast picture windows.

Artificial climbing in Japan

At 6.5 metres high, it features a colourful design resembling fireworks, with climbing holds shaped like sea creatures – and the promise of hours of fun.

And that’s the beauty of Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Atami: it has something for everyone, especially families.

Spacious & contemporary

At Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Atami, space and comfort is a given. No room is smaller than 65 square meters, and the biggest are a luxurious 120 square meters.



When you step into your room, you’ll immediately feel a wave of calm washing over you. The deep ocean blue colours of the carpets and curtains are offset by lighter shades of blue and white in the décor, bathing the room in a nautical calm. Through the expansive windows, you have your own private ocean view.


Of course, there’s also a touch of Japanese tradition. Every room comes with a raised platform lined with tatami mats. Extra beds can be rolled out here, in the form of futon mattresses – ideal for kids. But don’t forget that it’s socks or bare feet only on tatami!

Forest thicket

Once you’ve settled into your room, there’s plenty to discover at Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Atami. If the weather’s fine, head straight to the resort’s Kusukusu treehouse and garden.

Zen retreat in Japan

At the back of the hotel, you’ll walk through a tunnel of greenery before stepping out into what feels like the depths of a thick forest.

Suspended in mid-air on a raised wooden platform, you’ll find yourself face-to-face with the stocky boughs of 300-year-old camphor trees, their outstretched branches criss-crossing against the sky.

Family activities in Japan

Weaved in between the trees is a series of bridges, ropeways and wooden platforms that make up “Forest Walk in the Air”, an acrobranch-style course for kids and adults to test their dexterity and strength.

Cabin house

The huge camphor towards the end of the platform is home to a cosy – and very comfortable – tree house, which you can reserve to enjoy tea and cakes with your family or friends.

Kids’ activities aplenty

At Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Atami, there’s no end of family-friendly activities. The central Activity Lounge offers not just ocean views and a climbing wall, but a host of ways to keep kids entertained.

Holidays with kids

How about a workshop to design a photo frame, keyring or stained-glass decoration? Why not head to the Kids’ Room, which houses a smaller climbing wall and a ball pool looking out onto the ocean? Or sign up your children (from 4 years old) for a patisserie workshop in the resort’s restaurant.

Cooking class in Japan

When it comes to eating, the choice is yours: the lavish buffet spread of the Mogmog restaurant or the refinery of Hanabi – where you can enjoy a multi-course kaiseki menu while your children are looked after in the complimentary nursery.

Among adults

Those without children – or those who fancy enjoying time without their kids – will find plenty of options. The unique Sorano Beach Books & Café on the resort’s top floor is a café-library decked out like a beach: with recliners, boardwalks and soft white sand on the ground.

From 9pm, it’s reserved for adults only – a great place to chill with a drink and admire the ocean views.

Terrace on Atami

If great views and relaxation are your thing, you’re in for a treat at the onsen. The resort’s semi-outdoor baths and filled with a steady stream of Atami’s famed hot spring water and, from the tub, you’ll gaze out onto stunning views of the Pacific and the city.

Thanks to its location in the northeast of the Izu Peninsula, Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Atami makes a great base for exploring this beautiful area. The rugged nature of the Jogasaki coast is a short train ride away, and Atami itself has a celebrated Museum of Art.

The city is also known for its spectacular monthly fireworks displays. The best place to catch the show? Hoshino Resorts RISONARE Atami.
