Relax and enjoy
the splendors of Ogata Village
at a rural resort.

Welcome to Ogata Village

Ogata Village was created in 1964 through a large-scale land reclamation project undertaken on what was once the second largest lake in Japan: Hachirogata. It’s a land given new life from the depths of the lake.

‘Hotel Sun Rural Ogata’ became the landmark of the village with its surroundings of verdant abundance where rural landscapes unravel in all directions. We hope that you have a relaxing, laid back stay while enjoying cuisine prepared with fresh, local ingredients and natural hot springs.

Its location is also superb, providing easy and convenient access to tourist areas such as Oga Peninsula and Shirakami-Sanchi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


From the large windows which allow natural light to pour into the rooms, you can overlook the colors of the four seasons of Ogata Village. Being one of Japan’s largest reclaimed land areas, there’s nothing to disturb the view. There are four types of rooms available: single, twin, Japanese, and semi-suite. We will prepare a room to suit your needs and purpose of stay. All rooms are non-smoking only and feature free Wi-Fi.

Hot Spring

The ‘Shirakami View Hot Spring’ on the top floor features a breath-taking panorama where the sky and land come together as one with Mt. Moriyoshi and Mt. Taihei in the east, and a golden sunset in the west.

Our natural hot spring is a “Moor Hot Spring”, which means it contains a large amount of natural botanical moisturizing components.

The source of the spring comes from seawater which combined with plant matter nearly five million years ago. While slumbering deep within the Earth, the plant matter became humus and blended with the water. Filled with naturally moisturizing plant materials, the amber colored water is also known as “The Water of Beautiful Skin”. Please melt away the fatigue from your travels in our rare moor hot spring.

Guests may also use the adjacent public hot spring “Polder Lagoon” for free.
