I would go back to Shodoshima Island just to stay at this ryokan again. The dinner/breakfast was probably top three I have experienced in Japan. The dishes kept coming so I was stuffed at the end. Sushi on the sushi platter was creatively served in a manner not seen before. Plenty of tempura with 2-3 big shrimp and wide variety of vegetables. I stayed here in 2012 or so and my meals looked more elaborate than the pics someone posted. I think I paid around 12,000 yen/night and booked thru Jalan or Booking.com.
I give top marks to ryokans if they don't cut corners with dishes, e.g., leave out a tempura platter, don't include a whole fish dish which is usually the specialty of the area, in addition to the minor fish dishes included. Or not enough dishes, leaving you empty. I also give top marks when you think the meal is over, you are full, and yet another dish is provided. This ryokan impressed me with the sheer number of dishes, the wide variety, and the generous serving sizes. Quality of preparation was also excellent (no soggy tempura).
Although the staff didn't speak English, they were very friendly. I was given some gifts when I left which included a package of Shodoshima somen noodles. This ryokan is off the road a bit next to a parking lot and not to be confused with Seaside Hotel Matsukase.
