It's always great to stay at Relais & Chateaux member hotel for a nice getaway. We chose Seiryuso in the Izu area for its famous traditional Japanese cusine. And I also love how the name Seiryuso sounds, it means Clear River House, which is true, Seiryuso was surrounded by a river. The place was really rural, but in a peaceful... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Serenity and calm reign in this vast park bathed in Izus light. A flagstone walk flanked by 100-year-old willows and a lovely stone lantern leads to six pavilions admirably arranged in the purest Japanese style. Pure water from on-site hotsprings replenish the external pool, which is open all year long. Casa Vino, renowned for its refined cuisine, offers primarily fish and wines from around the world. ... more   less
