This was a lovely little find, well priced at ¥104 for 2 ppl in a Japanese style room. The room was big with a small siting area, bathroom and toilet. It is a good 20minute walk from the Miyajima ferry but there is plenty to look at along the way, including the incredible "floating" Torah. The only potential hiccup is... More

Funny story getting to the hotel. On the ferry to Miyajima island, I was blessed with one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen. Upon disembarking, the first thing I noticed were the plentiful deers hanging around the beach area. However, it started getting dark and fast. No taxi or bus to be found and google map is... More

We were traveling frugally through Japan, but "splurged" on this government-owned property. The price seems steep, but the way they break it down, you are paying the same for the room as at most mid-priced to cheaper traditional inns and about the same for breakfast (~1000 yen) and dinner (~4000 yen for the mid-level meal set) that you would at...

This was way beyond our usual frugal travelling budget, but we wanted the experience of staying on Miyajima overnight. As other reviewers have said, it's nice to be there after the daytrippers have left. We wanted to see the Torii Gate at high tide, low tide, and lit up at night. Ryokan Morinoyado (unless you want to stay at a... More

I have stayed here numerous times, by myself and as leader of adult and student tour groups. The Morinoyado offers old style Japanese hospitality with up-to-date amenities, situated by the pine woods on the edge of town. The location is quiet, peaceful, and quite lovely. It is convenient to hiking trails, and a short walk to the "floating shrine". The... More

Miyajima is a 'must do' if you are going to Japan. It is well worth making the effort to stay on the island. Once the many day trippers depart you feel as if you have this magical place to yourself. Morinoyado is a great choice. It provides you with the experience of staying in traditional style accommodation. The rooms are... More

We stayed here in the first week of April. It was comfortable and definitely . We arrived an hour early but weren't allowed to check in, but they kept our luggage for us. The room itself was very large and very clean. However, we did have to lay the beds ourselves, which might be a bit strange if you're not... More

Lovely Japanese inn at the far edge of tourist area. We are Americans living in Japan most of the year, so we are accustomed to and enjoy traditional Japanese inns. This ryokan includes both breakfast and dinner in their room rate, with the choice of a Western breakfast. Breakfast is served in the inn restaurant, and dinner was served in... More

Good view from our room; excentric location, but nice for walks.
