A relaxed very good hotel. The staff was very service oriented. An excellent 8 course Japanese dinner. Good Japanese breakfast. The WiFi was only working in the lobby but on the other hand, WiFi and TV should not be on your mind if you stay in an hotel like this.

This property is a partially hidden gem on Miyajima. It is centrally located and the staff is amazingly helpful. In fact, the staff may be some of the friendliest and most helpful we encountered during our Japan trip. The private, family style, Japanese bath is very relaxing after a day exploring the Island. Their recommendations, in terms of food, are... More

What beautiful hotel. The architecture is nothing short of traditional and enchanting. Staff are very friendly and helpful. It is in a quiet part of the neighbourhood. Wifi is excellent. Has aircon. The toilet was in our room but the shower was downstairs. Oh and don't forget the futon: like sleeping in clouds

The staff here were extremely helpful, they were courteous and friendly. The dinner was amazing. As each course came out, I savored each and every moment, with my eyes and... More

My mother and I wanted to stay at a Ryokan on our trip to Japan, but found it difficult to find one on our budget. We went with Ryoso Kawaguchi and we were not disappointed!! The host was very kind and spoke good English. She gave good advice on what to do on the island. The island was such a... More

The proprietor was extremely comfortable in her role of providing for a traditional, laid back but also flexible enough for Westerns ryokan experience. Our two kids were happy with their loft. The on site family-style onsen was great, and as a bonus there was a beer vending machine right outside the door :-) Great inner garden views and a huge... More

The Ryoso Kawaguchi is wonderfull place well located on the Miyajima Island. The rooms are cozy and so typical Japanese with great futon beds. But don’t miss the diner… the menu is just amazing, one of the best in my entire life…. 5 plates, all amazing… The Japanese breakfast was also delicious and so interesting. The owners are extremely friendly,... More

The dinner and the breakfast were delicious, its was almost gastronomic meals. The bathroom is a typical Japanese bath, they have two of them one for individual and one family size. Its a communal / private bathroom which... More

Our second time here and just as good. Gourmet food and cosy rooms. Great private onsen too.Situated on a lovely back street but near enough to the ferry. The owner transferred us to the ferry when we left.
