Very relaxing stay
Very relaxing stay at a seaside traditional ryokan. Service excellent, with English-speaking staff. Roof-top onsen is a unique feature overlooking the shipping lane for Nagoya. Both meals excellent. Very clean and quiet. Traditional Japanese room very spacious, futon beds very comfortable. Rock garden-like room entrances. Very little traffic in this area, easy access by car.
It’s out at nowhere. Picture looks good but actual.
Food just okay. Poor, if you consider price.
There is no non smoking room!!! All rooms has been smoked in. Lingering tobacco smell.
Staff are mostly SE Asian workers. Not very Japanese ryokan feeling.
Overall, you pay premium ryokans price for mediocre Japanese inn. Not Ryokan.
I can feel and see that property was all money making reason only. Don’t go if you are looking for authentic Japanese ryokan experience.
Too expensive for mediocre service and food
Very nice hotel with a number of traditional Japanese baths. Room is very spacious and in good condition. The bedding is very comfortable. Dinner and breakfast are highly recommended, a wide variety of seafood was served. Staff at this ryokan are all very kind and polite. highly recommend!
Onsen is awesome with sea view. In the room, heater can't be adjusted temperature. It's set over warm for us that make us uncomfortable. Therefore we have to open the terrace door all night to get the outside fresh air. That allowed mosquitoes coming in and we hardly slept well.
AMAZING- LOVED IT
If you like Japan this hotel should be on your bucket list. Located right on the beach in Minamichita and within walking distance to several nice restaurants. Our room had a spectacular sea view. We had dinner at the Seaside Capri restaurant next door. The waiter had an Ipad with a picture menu for us. Being a typical Japanese Ryokan you change into a yukata. (The yukata is a casual version of the kimono.)
After dinner we went to the 3rd floor where there are 2 first come first serve hot baths. The idea is to find one available, lock the door and then you have a private Japanese bath all to yourself. There is an area to wash up and you will find towels, soap, etc. There is a much larger Japanese bath "Hamarikyu" on the 5th floor that can be reserved for 30 minutes between 8 pm and 12 pm.
As part of our journey we took the Meitetsu Line from Nagoya to Fuki. Change train in Fuki and go to Utsumi. There was a sweet lady in the restaurant at Utsumi. She noticed us looking at the map and I showed her the name of the hotel on my phone. She called the hotel and a driver from the hotel came to pick us up. The hotel is about a 10 minute car ride from Utsumi Train Station.
