My partner and I stayed here for one night in December 2015. We were welcomed warmly by the owner and given a tour and shown to our room. It was a beautiful Japanese style room with a private toilet, but as is tradition the baths and accompanying shower are downstairs. We were given a lot of great information on the... More

Its been 15 months since I last visited this beautiful Ryoso and it remains one of favourite places to stay in all of Japan. Run by a lovely family who are kind and helpful at all times. Situated just behind the tourist strip with views over the water to the mainland. There is a supermarket situated right next door for... More

I made sure I visited Miyajima island on the day I could get a reservation at Ryoso Kawaguchi and I was not disappointed. This was the best Ryokan stay I had during my 3 weeks in Japan. The food was the best I've eaten (dietary restrictions in place). I highly recommend you stay and dine there. They were lovely to... More

Miyajima was my favourite destination during my 2 week trip to Japan, and besides the beauty of the island, a lot of it had to do with my stay here. I loved eveyrthing about Ryoso Kawaguch!. The service was very friendly, and offered tips about sights to explore in Miyajima. Upon arrival, I was given a me a tour of... More

The island beautiful (you've got to climb to the top of the mountain!) and this ryokan is just amazing. The location is perfect, just a short walk from the ferry terminal and a few steps away from the main sights of Miyajima. The staff is absoluetly charming, rooms are clean, food is awesome. I've been there twice and will come... More

Yoko, the owner is so friendly and helpful. The meals are delicious. The inn is full of lovely knicknacks, old chest of draws, etc. I saw a map in the coffee house opposite that listed the inn as already built in 1842! At the bottom of the road you see the five-storied pagoda. Really lovely place to stay while in... More

Easy to find, within easy walking distance from ferry and the floating Torii, right next to one of the main shop/souvenir streets. Old building but very well maintained. Staff was very friendly. We ordered dinner and breakfast, and the food was great, worth the experience. I don't eat any fish/seafood and they accomodated the menu to my taste without problems.... More

Our family of 4, including 2 teenagers, stayed for a night at Ryoso Kawaguchi in late June, 2015. We arrived around 3 pm, after wandering through the main street in Miyajima, in order to drop off our backpacks. We were greeted warmly by Mrs. Kawaguchi, who stowed our items and also shared with us some 'must-sees' in the vicinity. Despite... More

We went to this hotel on Saturday with together 17 people, including some seniors and kids, and had a wonderful time there. The owners provided very friendly services and comfortable rooms. (We occupied all the rooms that night) And also it is very close to the famous Miyajima Ootori and shrine. Thank you very much!
