We lucked out and wound up in a western room and it was terrible. Twin beds that felt like bricks and smelt damp, dirty carpet, no space. If we were in a Japanese-style room I'm sure our experience would have been different. On the flip side, the food was delicious and service very friendly.

I don't want to over inflate people's expectations, but we got the warmest welcome here compared to any other place during our trip to Japan. Shinko is a marvellous host who is guaranteed to make your stay truly memorable in terms of hospitality and wonderful food. Add the proximity to the ferry terminal on this island paradise 45 minutes away... More

This was one of the big surprises of our Japanese trip. Miyajima was a massive highlight and the Yamaichi Bekkan added to the whole experience. Run by a mother and son team; this ryokan was basic but clean and in an excellent location, right in front of the ferry terminal. We had a 2 nights stay with breakfast and kaiseki... More

A very welcoming, family run establishment with amazing food. Ideally situated on the island close to the pier where the ferry docks. We were made so welcome when we stayed here. We had dinner and breakfast included in our stay which both where exemplary. If you are looking for a place to stay on Miyajima this is definitely a great... More

I am currently enjoying my second night in this traditional establishment. The lady who owns/runs the place with her son is a fantastic host. Both she and her son are so helpful and friendly. Our room is beautiful and has everything we could need, even a shower which is unusual in a traditional inn. The food has been wonderful and... More

Hard to put into words about how wonderful our stay was! We were warmly greeted as we had called to tell them we were running very late but found them ready and happy to accomodate us with a late supper! Shinko and her son Teppei continued to be the best hosts anyone could ever as ask for! Our rooms -... More

We had a very enjoyable stay here, the owner speaks very good English and was incredibly welcoming! Our room was traditional Japanese style and very spacious and clean. The dinner was fantastic, the courses kept coming, Kobe beef, sashimi, noodle soup, fish parcel, grilled oysters, tempura, sushi, all really delicious! We were the only guests there, so not much atmosphere... More

TA is usually reliable except for thiis 'ryokan'. Sub-standard room, bathroom, in front of the ferry. Evening meal was average and the restaurant has no atmosphere - in the entrance hall. There are so many great choices on the Island. avoid, avoid, avoid.

We stayed here as part of a 3 week tour around Japan for our honeymoon. We received a really warm welcome upon arrival and after checking into our room we went down for dinner. The inn is small and there was only one other table having dinner so atmosphere was a little lacking. After dinner we went for a walk... More
