I was here to photograph the kokeshi festival, so it was a business trip of sorts. Above and beyond incredible hospitality. The owners are so nice and helped me get acquainted with the locals. I can't recommend this place enough, they really know the true meaning of countryside hospitality. One of the owners can speak English as well. There is... More

The hotel is located around 5min drive from the JR Naruko-onsen Station, which is reachable after changing to the local train (Riku-u East Line) from the Shinkansen at the Furukawa Station, 10min from Sendai. The train then goes into the Mountains and after around 40min you will be at Naruko Onsen station. The owner of the hotel can come meet... More

The owner is a helpful friendly man who will come and collect you from (and take you back to) the JR station if you notify in advance. Not to be sniffed at as Japanese taxis are rather more expensive than they used to be, and the JR station is a reasonable walk away (I wouldn't want to cart luggage up... More

Very luxurious room, very friendly and helpful staff, outstanding breakfasts (both Japanese and English), very relaxing indoor and outdoor onsens. The owner, without us asking, wrote down the train schedule to get us to Matsushima Bay; he also recommended several great restaurants for dinner, and drove us to and from the train station. This was the highlight of our trip... More

After a slightly unpromising start we really enjoyed our stay at this traditional hot spring hotel. The owner, who met us at the station, was clearly a bit anxious about having non-Japanese speaking guests (entirely fair enough), but had arranged for somebody to ensure that we understood the protocols of onsen bathing and arrangements for meals before we checked in....

Located in Miyagi Japan, this Onsen (hot spring) Ryokan is an excellent choice and easy to reach from Sendai. Very helpful owners, superb local food, and good location. Price is competitive. Well worth the extra cost for a room with Hinoki (cypress wood) bath. The outdoor rotenburo should not be missed. The owners will pick you up from the station.
