This former hotel, which was inundated up to the 4th floor during the 2011 Earthquake/Tsunami, has been left standing as a testament to the destructive power of the tsunami. The lower levels, that were inundated, are just steel frame, with the twisted elevator and the staircase pushed out of place by the water visible. Visitors who pre-arrange a tour (Japanese only, so good idea to have a translator or Japanese-speaker in your party) can visit the top floor and watch a video of the tsunami coming into the area. The video was filmed from the very room where it is shown and is very impactful. The speed at which the water moved was unbelievable!

This review is only of the restaurant, though the hotel itself looked beautiful and is situated on the cliffs above Taro Bay, giving it some outstanding views. The meal was sublime: two plates of sashimi and lightly grilled fish, arranged with colorful fresh vegetables so that each plate looked like a miniature garden of delights. Every bite was completely fresh and delicious, one of the best meals I had in Japan. If the accommodations are half as good, this new enterprise will be setting the standards for Miyako for many years.

To understand the destruction of the tsunami you need to visit the hotel they have left for that very reason. The smaller buildings were cleared and new ones built. Also watch for buildings with a blue sign about 30' high on their wall... in English it will give the depth and date.
