You’ll enjoy your stay at Japanese traditional hotels in Miya Onsen Area, such as the followings, with hot spring public baths (indoor, outdoor, roof terrace) to refresh you after sailing. They are in the walking distance from Toyota Industries Kaiyo Yacht Harbour and offers mainly traditional rooms with Tatami mats and Futon (Japanese mattress placed on Tatami mats as bedding and is stored in a closet when not in use) and limited number of western style rooms. During pre worlds, 7 sailors from overseas stayed in traditional rooms in the following hotels. The rooms are quite large, clean and with a nice view and it seems like they were happy to have slept on Futon in the traditional room.

A list of possible options for accommodation including the above hotels and some others which offer more western style rooms will be posted later on this page with information of price, room type, access, etc.

About containers and boats storage location

From the beginning of July until 7 August 2017, containers can be stored in the Kaiyoh Yacht harbor. Location of the container yard, dinghy yard and the club house are shown in the block plan.
Location map
Google Earth

Tasars may be located in the dinghy yard from 8 July through 7 August 2017. There are rings to secure boats on the dinghy yard. Although July-August is not yet the peak of typhoon season, you may wish to bring a long sheet-rope and fasten your boat.
Vehicles carrying in and out of the containers must get through the gate beside the club house. It is therefore to be done during the business hours of the sailing club, that is from 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
The dinghy yard as well as the container yard close to the dinghy yard are surrounded by fences. Access to your boats and the containers is therefore possible through the gate beside the club house only between 8:00 AM and 7:00 PM.
Even if it is surrounded by the fence, please make sure to lock the containers and not to keep valuables in your boat for security reasons.

Container storage fee

Container storage fee is 4.89 JPY per square meter per day.
For example, the storage fee for one 40ft container for 17 days (22 July to 7 August) is 2,470 JPY
Calculation of which is 4.89 x 12.192m x 2.438m (size of a 40ft container) x 17days = 2,470-.

” Gamagori City, in Aichi Prefecture, is located almost in the very center of Honshu. It is a seaside sightseeing destination surrounded by two large peninsulas, the Atsumi Peninsula and Chita Peninsula, and is designated as the Mikawa Bay Quasi-National Park. There are four hot spring areas along the roughly 47-km coastline, and the city itself is a beautiful place with many shrines and temples. This is a place where you can really feel Japanese culture. From sea to mountains, the picturesque scenery abounds in variation and has been loved by Manyo poets and more modern authors alike, and visited by many a person of letters. ”
