The ryokan is tucked just a little ways into the Iya valley, so it made a great base for day trips further in to the more remote Higashi-iya. The staff were very helpful and had great recommendations for things to see and also drive times. The food was incredible and the rooms were fantastic, but the highlight had to be... More

We enjoyed three nights here relaxing and touring locally. It is set high up on the Iya Gorge, a small hotel with all one requires for a relaxing time. View down into the Gorge and along it is incredible. Onsen Cyprus Bath in the room with a magnificent view across the narrow valley. Large windows with plenty of fresh air... More

Although a bit pricey, this ryokan is worth every dollar. The staff are warm and welcoming from the minute you arrive. The room is lovely and the view from the bath is breath taking. With the room comes dinner and breakfast the next morning. I think the meals were some of the best I have ever eaten! We only stayed... More

In old fashioned Japanese style, bookings are made on trust, and we paid on departure, in cash. We did not expect to be able to pay by credit card and never asked... More

Iya Bijin is pretty incredible. The outside of the Inn looks a bit tudor roadhousy and small, but once you are inside and go downstairs it all opens up. We had had quite a bad time getting to Iya on time (wrong turn on the expressway!) but once the door to our room was opened we pretty much cheered up... More

We were blessed to stay in this modern Ryokan for one night on 14 April 2009. We found it through another Trip Advisor members posting in her trip report. This is not just a room for the night but a wonderful Japanese experience. Iya Bijin sits on the side of a mountain overlooking the Iya Valley with a river below... More
