Real Ryokang style room”
The hotel can provide free the pickup from train station. The room is very traditional, beautiful Ryokang style. The room is quite cold at night but they provide additional gas heater but we don't use it because we don't like gas odor. They have small onsens inside. Check in/out time is not convenient. Check in time is 4pm and check out time is 10am.
Quaint Ryokan in rustic Miyazu. Perfect for a value for money rest from the city crowd.
The old story of this Ryokan”
Every impressed about the history of Miyazu and this Ryokan. It is a bit far from train station but you can arrange the own to pickup you. He is very warm welcome.
A wonderful experience in a historical hotel”
I would highly recommend traveler to stay here which is a historical over 100years hotel. It is close to a shopping mall and many restaurant. It takes around 10minutes to JR station. And you can take a ship to Amanohashidate in 10 minutes because it is also near to the ship station.
Historical museum ryokan”
Very nice ryokan with onsen. But the owner don't like to smile to customer. We reach at evening and the bed is ready for us, the room is very big . Breakfast at hall with painting, the staff is more friendly then owner, at least they smile, this is customer prefer.
Traditional hotel in sea side...”
I love this hotel, a traditional hotel with roomy guest rooms. They have no heated tatamis, but worry not as you'll can hug those hot stone while sleeping. You should order breakfast or dinner which was cooked in Miyazu style and tastes great! It is a little bit on the sweet side rather than savoury like most Jjapanese cuisine. However you should tell them in advance that you wanted to have breakfast or dinner otherwise they won't be able to prepare anything for you. Don't worry tough if you've forgotten to reserve the food. This hotel is located in strategic location, as it is close many local restaurants just across the road, and a shopping mall 5 minutes away by foot, and train station is just 10 minutes away. In addition to this hotel's lush garden, this hotel is located adjacent from public park and seaside. Oh yes, you are not allowed to wet the wall as its traditionally made. Also for some rooms, the toilet was located outside. Show less Room Tip: The room on 2nd floor north side got the best view...
Good experience for Rokan”
Very friendly and informative receptionist. Speak good English Good experience for traditional Japanese rokan for 1 night. I don't think I could scope to stay for more nights ..cant get used sleeping on tatami and traditional Japanese pillow (very hard - beans in fill)
It was absolute special & original. We enjoyed the historical building and of course our room with garden-view. The hot onsen was a highlight, and the very japanese breakfast too. The host & his mother where gorgeouse and helpful
Authentic ryokan stay with great service”
Love the Onsen! Public one but when u go at night, you can have the space to yourself! Onsen opens till 11pm. Breakfast was nice, did not try the dinner ( too expensive). Spent more than 3 hours and USD 50 to travel from Osaka using JR train. Small cosy town suitable for a great morning walk! Ryokan owner is very friendly and helpful. Fetched us to train station and advised us where to tour. A pity that we reached the ryokan too late so did not spend much time explore the ryokan itself which is a historical site by itself.
big room and antique building 300 years old”
very lovely ryokan,have good service by owner ,is 13th generation,he show us the ryokan museum on 3rd. floor. the room is very big room with small terrace. the bathroom is modern style with baht tub.
Great location and service”
very close to Miyazu station hotel location is simply perfect. It is 3 km walk to Amanohashidate, nearby plenty of restaurants (ask Tokuda-san for a tip where to go), great supermarket, promenade walks along the Miyazu Bay. Public gym is close as well.
Shame that this beautiful listed 300 years old hotel has not been maintained well.”
Dirty bathroom floor in the changing room. Covered with black molded water stains so needed to complain to the hotel as they request you to not to wear slippers in the building so that I had to stand on the dirty floor after the Onsen bath. The edge of the white tiles in the wall around the Onsen bathtub also had turned to black mold colour. The paint on the woodwork was completely peeled, and one of the sink was left broken. The bedroom had ensuite bathroom and toilet but the bathtub was possibly original wooden tub probably installed like 50 years ago and the bottom corners were completely black and melded. Wall paper was hanging and wood ceiling panels had many water marks. It’s really shame that this 300 years old listed hotel had not been maintained well. The building itself is a beautiful and full of old features. The dining room was very pretty and well presented compare to the bathroom and bedroom. The main front reception area was also well presented.
Large rooms and wonderful history”
Large, clean rooms and well maintained considering the age of the hotel. Delicious breakfast and friendly staff. The owner kindly showed us around the hotel and the wonderful art.
it was very cold and the heater did not work at night. Probably the timer was on. Breakfast was good. It was a bit far from the train station. The plus side is that it's next to a mall so it was very convenient.
Booked this ryokan for a last-minute trip to Amanohashidate. It is conveniently located near a station and only a short walk/bike ride to a number of sightseeing locations in Amanohashidate. The room was spacious and had everything we needed for a one-night stay. The ryokan is old, but it has been maintained well enough. It was nice being able to relax in the onsen after a long day of walking and explore the local area.
Traditional hotel with top notch service”
A very old historical Ryokan. You can expect a mix of traditional terrain with modern hotel service. Luckily the hotel provided hotel transfer (about 800m from station to hotel). The room was 10/10 traditional, tatami mat and futon, with the tea drinking area. there was only a tap and sink available, so if you are used to having your own toilet, this will prove to be very inconvenient because the hotel uses common toilet on the room floor. Overall i would rate this hotel a 7/10. I really like that i could cycle to Amanoshidate and there was a mega mart just 5mins away, not forgetting the service. The male staff did an old culture of actually rushing (shuffling his feet) to show us around the hotel. Would recommend this place to have an experience.
An absolute must visit.”
Unbelievable service from the owner (13th Generation!) and an amazing room. The building is over 300 years old and the artwork that you'll see on the walls really tells a great story. Miyazu and it's surrounds are beautiful. And the locals are always up for a chat even if you Japanese is lousy. Don't forget to hit the ferry across to Amonhasidate and check out the temples, take the cable car up to the national Park and see the view. Take particular note that at some of the temples and shrines photography is banned. There is the worry that you might catch one of the spirits that are in the vicinity and you could also upset some who are there to pray. Fair enough. Now... Go and enjoy.
wondeful veryx exclusive ryokan ; staff speaks little english (as very often in japan),rooms are traditional and very big. for japanese relations relatively old (really a "museum" -so dont expect a luxury onsen ora high tech toilet. but really very big room with beautiful garden
a good Ryokan experience”
We have 3 different rooms. 1 couple, 2 singles. the Couple room AirCon is very old and doesn't quite work - its hot in the summer time. The Ryokan is clean but worn out, breakfast is good and close to AEON for some small shopping and about 10 min drive to the sight
very nice people”
the staff over there are so nice. He drove us to the train station as we check out of the hotel. We did't know that they are gonna drive us to the train station and we didn't ask for it, they just offer it to us. The location is great, it has a supermarket next to it and a ferry and bus station within three minutes walk.
