In 1961, Mr. Odaka Yoshio established the first hotel in Katsuura city. The hotel is set on a tranquil harbor with coastline curving in the shape of a crescent. Being inspired by this special idea, the hotel was named Mikazuki which means crescent in Japanese. The logo of Mikazuki was also born from this: Mikazuki's logo is the perfect combination of the red circle in the Japanese flag and the crescent moon symbol, the meaning of the word "Mikazuki". Although simple but contains a deep meaning, Mikazuki in the heart of the land of the rising sun, one which is imbued with Japanese cultural identity.For many subsequent hotels, the bay is always the preferable place.
