Where to stay in Nanao

Accommodation in Nanao is scarce, mostly consisting of a couple of inns and hotels catering to business travelers, scattered around the city. The Wakura Onsen, on the other hand, boasts a large variety of traditional Japanese "ryokan" guesthouses, as well as mid-range and high-end Western-style hotels. Situated on the coast just outside of town, the "onsen" resort village features lodings with scenic sea views.
