In booking a Hyogo hotels getaway, you give yourself the opportunity to see some of the very best of Japan. You can find the perfect accommodation in Hyogo by booking exclusively with HotelClub to enjoy our member benefits, including free room upgrades and earning 7% back on your bookings. With two coastlines on the main island of Honshu and historical and cultural sites in plentiful supply, this region really is a wonderful destination for the keen traveller.
You have to spend some time in what is known as Belly Button Park, right in the country's centre, within Nishiwaki City. Be sure to admire the park's large monument, and if you have children in your party, then there is a terrific interactive science museum on the grounds that will keep them entertained. One of the best castles in Japan is on the doorstep at Himeji, but the real must-see is the glorious Engyoji Temple, tucked away in a splendid forest and accessed by cable car, which is a thrill in itself.
If the slightly unconventional museum appeals, then enjoy a tour of the Tatsuno Soy Sauce facility. It might sound offbeat, but it is genuinely fascinating, with all the old tools and wooden machinery on display; you even get a souvenir bottle to take away.
The Kobe Airport is the nearest to Hyogo, although Osaka's Kansai International Airport offers more flights and is only around 40 minutes away by bus. There are very good bus services all across the area and taxis are always in good supply.
