“Nicely located but poor value”
Reviewed 28 August 2012

The ryokan-style hotel is splendidly located on top of a cliff, accessible only by car. We went there during poor weather and had to take a much longer road than we expected to get there since the coast was closed. Since no food is served after 8pm we were a bit under pressure - you don't want to miss the seafood served there (see picture)! It's better to order your dishes well in advance over the phone if you're in doubt about your arrival time. The rooms are comfy, with a second smaller room giving the amazing view on the coast (see picture). The amenities are a bit disappointing. Just a sink in the room, the (smelly!) restrooms are shared with other costumers, and there is no bathroom/shower at all - for that you have to take the walk to the (very nice) two onsen bath showers, which doesn't open before 11am or so and closes at 10pm.. The onsen is ok, with also a wonderful view on the coast, but is not that hot and a bit small for both genders. Breakfast is not included in the price, nor are towels, making this place in our opinion too expensive for what you get.

Reviewed 23 April 2012

This month I was a pilgrim and stayed at this lovely accommodation.
The staff is friendly, helpful and most gracious. I sat out a storm and
enjoyed the stunning views to the ocean. The food is delicious and
fresh. I was tempted to stay more nights to see how many different
dishes they could prepare. I will return with friends. A great place to
stop and relax. Good English spoken.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view.

I stayed in dormitory accommodation which was fine - the other rooms I saw, particularly those with an ocean view, were top quality. The hot tubs (including an outdoors one, overlooking the ocean) were great. I enjoyed breakfast, and was made to feel at home. The hotel is used by pilgrims who added to the interest of the place. There was free internet access on a pc in the lounge. Staff were very friendly and helpful - I really enjoyed my stay.
