We follow tour group, so have limited time visiting onsen. There are 6 onsens. I prefer onsen in the cave. Onsen 1 is the most famous. I tried onsen 3 and the view was beautiful. The ryokan room is clean and spacious. View from the room was also very good.

This is a huge hotel with many different types of rooms. We stayed at the room on the Sun Rise Building so we get to see the sun rise every morning which is very impressive. However, everything else is just average. The pillow, quilt and the beddings smelled and there were not enough towels for use. Service and food is... More

The Ryokan room is very clean. There were 6 onsens to choose. The Onsen that is in the cave is the best among the six. Therefore, definitely crowded. The buffet has a good variety of food. There is also a Maguro cutting demonstration. Not sure if it is available every night.

Special and nice cave onsen with ocean view - enjoying it alreay provides you a good reason of stay here. The hotel is a bit old, and so big with lots of local travellers. The rooms are spacious which is not easy to find in Japan. The overall quality may be not up to modern standard, but again, experiencing the... More

The stay at this Hotel is recommended for the ocean view from our spacious room and the cave onsen we went. And the spectacular sunrise we watched from our room is a plus! But all other things we experienced such as check-in service,food ( both buffet dinner and buffet breakfast we had) were below standard of our whole 6 nights... More

We had a such a nice time at this hotel we extended an extra day. The cave onsen were so unique and relaxing. To sit in a hot spring pool while looking out to the ocean was the best experience. The food s was very good, but you have to enjoy authentic Japanese food. We were the only westerners at... More

Stayed one night in November 2012. We took a 10-minute ferry from the mainland to reach this hotel - no hassle at all. The ferry is probably owned by the hotel. This hotel is huge, over 1,000 rooms and lots of shopping on the lobby floor. The outstanding feature of this hotel is definitely the spas (hot spring or onsen).... More

It is a large size hotel in an island, we stay in a room with full view facing the pacific ocean. The food there is so-so but my hot spring experience in sea caves is unforgetable!
