The Crown Jewel of Ojika Island
Give in to Exquisite Luxury of Hoshu

The name Hoshu 鮑集 is made up of Hō 鮑 character meaning “Abalone”, and Shuu 集, meaning “Collection”. Ojika Island once thrived on abalone fishing which was hosted at the port next door to Hoshu. As abalone numbers kept declining in the neighboring seas the port went from bustling to tranquil. The dining area windows of Hoshu, overlooking the port, provide a glimpse into the daily life of islanders going about their business around the port: perfect to get a feel for the beauty and rhythm of the community. Those who wish to regain their inner peace can retreat into the traditional tatami room with a stunning Japanese garden view. After an exciting day of island adventures the cozy living room area with a large sofa is perfect to recover from the business of everyday life.
