Located in Miyagi Prefecture, Kesennuma Morino Cottage is a 20-minute drive away from Kesennuma Station. Free WiFi is available, and private parking is available free of charge on site. Totally funky, arty group of timber cottages in the woods. LOVED the whimsical design touches, and the owner is lovely. Our favourite stay so far in Japan, but probably not to everyone's taste. Great place for relaxing and chilling out for a few days break in a long trip. Beautifully maintained.
Situated in Kesennuma, Miyagi region, La'gent Inn Kesennuma is located 15 km from Osabe-minato. The staff were excellent and very knowledgeable of the local area (some of the best hotel staff I've ever met), the rooms were nicely decorated and very high standard for a budget hotel, moreover whilst we stopped in smoking rooms the smell of smoke was very weak (my parents weren't even aware that they were staying in a smoking room)! The hotel was also very quiet! Overall it is the staff which made this hotel wonderful! But it doesn't disappoint in other areas!

Kesennuma was where I started to relax and really enjoy my visit to Japan. Up till then I'd been a bit overwhelmed by all the possibilites that Japan offered. On arrival in Kesennuma, I was immediately helped by friendly people at the station, and was then treated with enormous kindness by the kitchen staff at the Accommo Inn who made me special vegetarian food. My one night stay became a five night stay, and each day I explored a different part of town, or one the islands and peninsulas. There is great walking, lovely Shinto shrines, and the poeple are kind and helpful. I'd gone there largely to get a sense of the tsunami, its power and what happened. Kesannuma provided enough to get some understanding of that, as well as how people coped. It was also good to be travelling slightly off the main tourist tracks.
A large part of Kesennuma was devastated in the 2011 tsunami. i had stayed there prior to the tsunami & have visited several times, to see the progress on their way to recovery. It is a beautiful region, people are amazing & visitors help their economy & recovery.
Great bad for the region. Rail part of Ofunato line from Ichinoseki terminates here - brilliant bus replaces the rail service that was destroyed in 2011. Wonderful people and food. The temporary 'recovery' site has many izakaya which are very good, welcoming places.
