Kannon Onsen
Ranked #5 of 68 Hotels / Ryokan in Shimoda
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Came here with my husband only to stay 1 night in the middle of winter during a trip to Tokyo, and wished we had booked for longer! The onsen is tucked away and you do have to go out of your way to get there, but it was worth the effort and expense. We were upgraded to the VIP room which has beautiful, very spacious, comfortable and spotless, with 2 private onsen baths and a terrace with a view of the serene forest. Their selling feature is the naturally alkaline water which is silky soft and smooth and drinkable, and great for the skin and general wellbeing. We are both onsen enthusiasts and this place is the best we have experienced in terms of water quality & overall accommodation.

Dinner was delicious and fulfilling. The specialty is the local seafood and home grown vegetables and fruits some of which are grown on the property with the onsen water. We even overheard other Japanese visitors commenting on how different and tasty the produce is.

It is worth getting some of their popular skincare & beauty range that is made with the alkaline water to bring back home.

Interesting note is that there is a bottling plant located near the onsen as their water is sold as health water to certain vendors in japan. Upon leaving, each guest is given a bottle for the journey home.
The stay was relaxing and refreshing and felt like a health retreat.

Due to our short stay and because we already had private baths in the room, we did not use the shared onsens, but the view and atmosphere are amazing.

Would love to return again!!

Room Tip: More privacy on higher floors but also more expensive. Worth splurging for a room with own onsen ba...

Hot tab on your own terrace lets you hop in at any time day or night. Larger bath open to all other guests are nice, too, but I just loved staying in the hot water. The biggest attraction here is the water itself. It makes your skin feel silky soft and smooth. The rooms were spacious and nicely appointed. Waking up with birds chirping was very refreshing as well. The only disappointment was the food. It appeared as if the less done to the ingredients the better it tasted. For instance, raw fish (sashimi) was quite nice, but more intricately cooked food were somewhat bland. I'd go back for the hot springs alone. The next time I'd love to spend two or more nights and just relax.

Room Tip: Just ask for a room with private hot tab!
