Soak up the atmosphere of a VIP at Shimonoseki-Shunpanro, a historic bay-side inn which the emperor visited.

Yamaguchi - Shimonoseki

This traditional Japanese style of inn has watched the comings and goings of a dream called history as the State Guesthouse of Shimonoseki. Emperor Hirohito, the current Emperor and Empress and many other members of the royal family have stayed at this historic inn.

Shunpanro was the first certified server of fugu (globefish), beloved by Hirobumi Ito himself.

The dainty foods, served in dishes that compliment them, can only be what they are because they are the product of a skill passed down for generations. In order for you to taste fresh tiger globefish, each one is lovingly prepared with care to every detail from time to temperature.

There are a mere 7 rooms, and boats travel to and fro outside the windows. It is a space bursting with a charm both Japanese and Western. The beautiful night lights of northern Kyushu shine from the opposite shore at night. In the two reservable family baths, you can experience a moment of rest with your loved ones.

Gazing out at the passing boats, letting the mind wander to the great people who visited this place… How would you like to experience a journey that touches the history and culture of Shimonoseki?
