Izu Hokkawa Onsen Bousui
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 November 2007

Second stay here. The first was in 2005. Bousui is a wonderful seaside ryokan along the coast of the Izu peninsula easily reached by express train from Tokyo. Besides the large common baths on the 1st level guests can also reserve a "private gazebo". This is actually just a large room with a private bath you can have to yourself for one or two hours instead of bathing with everyone else as is traditional in these type of inns. Each of the four "gazebos" are decorated slightly differently but also very tasteful with chairs and sofa for lounging and a separate shower area for washing before enjoying the hot spring bath outside. As Bousui is located right along the ocean, both the baths and all the rooms have an ocean view. I had a junior suite on the 7th floor and relaxed to the sound of the crashing waves below. The staff are all very friendly and the food was both plentiful and delicious. The rooms on the 7th floor come with a "grounding pass" which allows you access to the Ibuki lounge on the 3rd floor. Unfortunately it doesn't have any view of the outside but the pass give you access to free (unlimited) drinks and the staff will bring you a changing selection of small dishes to keep you fat and happy. Bousui is my favorite seaside ryokan (inn) in Japan and I plan to visit again.

Room Tip: 絨毯のある部分が、汚れが大きく目立ちます。イス・テーブル周りが特に擦れていて、せっかくの宿の良さが半減してしまいます。そろそろ替えては。
