The history of Destiny Inn dates back to 1947. Originally the grandfather’s opening restaurant “Tokiwa” is beginning. As a place for people going and leaving Oki-island and Sakaiminato, and after that, he founded the “Tokiwa Ryokan” for people who need accommodation due to the windward wait of a regular ship. At Sakaiminato, which was a major transportation hub for a long time, he offered people a place to eat, relax and staying. About 70 years later, the “Tokiwa Ryokan” revived as “Destiny Inn” to the Sakaiminato as a key tourist destination.
