Boasting 2 restaurants, a café and a bar, all with magnificent ocean views, Toba International Hotel is conveniently located just a 4-minute shuttle ride away from Toba Train Station. The hotel is MAGNIFICENT. VERY luxurious and the check-in and check-out were practically white-glove services. The breakfast was a great variety of foods, and the staff was helpful and kind. Great English speaking as well. The bay-view suite was large, the size of two rooms, and the view as fantastic.
Featuring a shared lounge, garden and views of sea, Wisterian Life Club Toba is located in Toba, 3.1 miles from Mikimoto Pearl Island. Free WiFi and a 24-hour front desk are provided. The view of the bay and Suga island is exceptionally breathtaking and refreshing, with the blue pacific ocean and a green island, perfect for waking up to this. The room is somewhat spacious for four people. The bathroom is separated from the toilet, making it comfortable for many people staying.
Boasting natural hot spring baths and a beautiful garden overlooking the ocean, Toba International Hotel Shiojitei offers luxurious accommodations in Toba. It was a wonderful stay in Toba International Hotel Shiojitei 潮路亭. Staffs are very friendly and helpful, driving us to dinner. I love the pearl hot spring, very shining. Will definitely comeback next time.
Offering an outdoor pool and a restaurant, Todaya is located in Toba. The property is a 3-minute walk from JR Toba station and is a convenient location from where to tour Ise-Shima. This is my 3rd stay within 3 months. I like it! Place is great, great location, great service, great personnel, great dinner and breakfast. Onsen is awesome, decors are amazing, I just love this place. Thank you all!
Boasting open-air hot spring baths and ocean views from all rooms, Toba Grand hotel is located a 5-minue drive from JR/Kintetsu Toba Train Station. Very convenient with a free shuttle bus from the station. The hotel has amazing sea views. Free welcome drinks and cookies. Large room with very comfortable futons. My kids loved the games room. I loved the onsen. Little twinkly lights inside the outside bath over looking the fishing platforms that are lit up at night. Such a great buffet breakfast with so much choice. My kids loved having cheesecake and ice cream for breakfast. The staff spoke English and were so helpful when I left my bag on the shuttle bus.
Just 984 feet from Toba Station, Japanese-style inn Kaigetsu features comfortable rooms. The hotel offers public baths, a restaurant and free wi-fi in public areas. Very close from nearby train station, wonderful room with sea view, quiet, comfortable, clean. Very friendly welcoming by Owner, English speaking. Unexpected superb onsen on the top floor overlooking the sea - a very nice surprise. We used this place as our base location to visit the Shima and Mie peninsula and the Nara shrines, all easily reachable by train. Great small seafood (and other) restaurants at short walking distance.
Overlooking Toba City and Ise Bay, Senpokaku features a tea lounge and natural hot-spring baths with panoramic views. The Japanese-style rooms include bay views and a full private bathroom. The facility is good. It is an older facility but you get to enjoy staying in a tatami mat room and sleeping on a floor futon. The rooms were nice and spacious. Since the hotel is on a mountain, you also get an amazing view of the bay, the mountains and the town below. You can see the sunrise from the bedroom window or climb further up the mountain. The staff was nice and very accommodating.
Featuring a bar, Kochoran offers rooms in Toba, 1 mi from Mikimoto Pearl Island. With free WiFi, this 3-star ryokan offers free shuttle service. The accommodations provides a 24-hour front desk. Staff attitude towards customers and cleanliness are very good.
Located in Toba, within 1.7 miles of Mikimoto Pearl Island and 2 miles of Toba aquarium, Yukai Resort Premium Toba Saichoraku provides accommodations with a restaurant and free WiFi as well as free... The buffet breakfast and dinner were phenomenal. If you have a chance to book half board, make sure you do. The facilities were outstanding, but make sure you don't use any of it during weekends or national holidays when it's packed everywhere, especially the swimming pool. The room was big and had a nice view. The free parking and good wifi are definitely a plus.
Toba itself is nothing much - which makes it a great place to relax - but the view from our hotel over the bay was wonderful. We've stayed twice in hotels with a sea view and it's very relaxing. If you like aquariums, the one in Toba is supposed to be very good, but we didn't go. However, we've been twice to Mikimoto Pearl Island, which well worth visiting if you are interested in the history of cultured pearls. There's a demonstration of pearl diving and an interesting museum. The Ise Grand Shrine is not far by train and worth visiting once. Toba is great for seafood and especially Ise Ebi (Japanese spiny lobster) which is served in many different ways.
The time I spent in Toba was too short to cover every recommended place. However, if you have or rent a car, I would like to recommend you to go to Toba Observatory (鳥羽展望台), which takes only 20 mins by driving from the central Toba. This observatory allows you to see the breathtaking panoramic view of the oceanic coast of Ise-Shima National Park, and probably a view of the famous Mt. Fuji in distance (if the weather allows). Along the way to this observatory, you will pass the Onoura bay (生浦湾), where the largest oyster industry is located. You can taste the freshest oysters at any restaurant along the pearl road (there are even the tabehoudai, 食べ放題, or buffet courses offered in some restaurant).
To reach Toba, we traveled by Shimakazi (luxuary) train from Osaka. This is the area to see Mikimoto Pearl Island, the Mikimoto museum (which is very interesting) and especially the Ama divers ( the women that free-dive for shell fish and pearls). The hotel had a scheduled pick-up shuttle from the train station and the shuttle took us back into town. It runs on a fixed schedule. We missed the last one, but with a call, they came to get us. There is boat cruise which takes you around the area. There is a stop light very near the boat dock and If you walk straight across the road you'll be on a small street that has both a local style and an Italian restaurant. We went (very) local style but had a Japanese friend to translate. Of course, pointing to the menu pictures always works and the tempura was delicious. The Italian restaurant looked quaint and inviting.
We really really love the ocean view,the sunset and sunrise,though its far from the city or station its worth,the foods are great,the public bath is clean but the rotenburo outside is not that good because of green insects in the water.
I've not visited Toba & Ise more than 50 years ago. So, this visitation brought me back some. It was good experience for me and it was good learning for my daughter. On my next visit, I'ld like to have more of the pertinent knowledge so that my understanding and appreciation of the places will be in the place.
Toba is a small port town , but a convenient location for trains, ferries and sightseeing buses. It has a ramshackle look about it around the port, but the shops within the old buildings are as well arranged and staffed as other places in Japan . We met only a few English speakers in Toba, however the tourist information office had some of the best english speaking and helpful staff we have encountered. You will definitely need translation apps while in this area. The longer we stayed and explored the more we came to love Toba. Research the area and enjoy Toba, Ise , Ago Bay and the islands, but especially the friendly people.

Thank you to Kiku-san, her mother and all the staff at Kaigetsu for a very memorable stay. The customer service was top notch. All the meals were delicious and beautifully presented. We especially liked the dining rooms and its ambiance. Our kaiseki dinner was the best that we’ve had in Japan and I will definitely recommend it. Kiku-san even shared special home made umeshu with freshly picked cherry blossoms on top, to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Thank you for going the extra mile.
This is a great place to stay to experience local hospitality and great nature. We came in quite late and did not preorder dinner. As the place is very remote from any shops or restaurants - we arrived hungry. The host had kindly arranged a great dinner for us consisting of local delicacies. The Onsen is rather small and old, but is a nice to have after a long day out. Overall do not expect a fancy ryokan, but it’s a great place to stay for a night.
Went to Todaya for a second time, just a week later. I wanted more! The facility is a bit out dated but beautiful and look at all the art details displayed. Such a convenient location giving you access to everything to see in Toba and nearby. Great Staff, helpful and thankful. Breakfast and dinner was good with a wide variety. Onsen, outdoors, are wonderful. I will return during the warmer days...
The facility is good. It is an older facility but you get to enjoy staying in a tatami mat room and sleeping on a floor futon. The rooms were nice and spacious.

We liked that it was located right by the ocean. We chose the room with the private onsen - which we HIGHLY recommend - and loved watching the ocean. We loved the room as well -- there was a massage chair, modern bathroom facilities, and spacious living accommodations. It IS a little dated, so the hotel itself will seem a little old, but the room was very comfortable.
The hotel staff did a very good job. They really paid special attention. When I checked out and was walking down the hill to the train station, the hotel sent someone to drive the hotel shuttle to pick me up to go to the train station.
The overall experience. The firework at night. The exquisite dinner and friendly staff. The hotel omiyage shop.
It is conveniently located to Toba station (about a 5-minute walk). The staff is friendly and helpful.
