Opened as the first luxury hotel in the Goto archipelago, Hotel Sou was designed by Suppose Design Office led by two Architects Makoto Tanijiri and Ai Yoshida, who are active all over the world. It was built with the concept of “coexistence and harmony” as if the interior was outdoors.
Similar to the “Hidden Christian Sites in Nagasaki and Amakusa Region” that was registered as a World Heritage Location two years ago, Hotel Sou is also a place to invite the people of “Prayer Island” to a rich natural journey with deep faith and history that we would like to introduce it to the whole world.

AN INTERVIEW WITH HOTEL SOU, GOTO ISLANDS

AirHost: How did you find out about us?

AirHost: Please tell us the reason why you decided to outsource the business to our AirHost operation agency.
