We stopped here one afternoon and one night on our way to Tokyo. We had found info on the net and booked before. The inn is very old, some info said roots as long as 1000 years ago. The building also looks old, but rooms and public spaces are very clean and nice. There are steps though to some rooms, so old or disabled persons should bookrooms without steps. The inn is in a quiet area of Akashi, no noise from outside in our room which was on the 3rd floor towards the street/road. We saw another room first, but changed to another with a bit more of a view. View was not impressive though, too many buildings between the inn and the Akashi Strait and the bridge. We could see a little part of it though. Our room was more a suite with several rooms and a balcony section plus a wooden bathtub. Smoking was allowed in our room. We used the hot baths on the ground floor, one for women and one for men, this changes every second day so if you stay over night you can try both sections. They both have different baths and saunas and are very, very nice. One of the reasons we chose to stay at the inn was their tako-yaki. We chose a quite large menu inclusing the tako-yaki. We got some 6-7 dishes, all excellent and served in our room. (We had more dishes than on the pictures). The food was delicious! Desserts too. Service quick and correct as it should be in a ryokan. The breakfast next morning served downstairs next to an indoor pool with a shark (!) was traditional Japanese and also excellent. Of course a place like this is not cheap, quite pricey, but it is an experience in itself and all top quality. A walk to the strait with the changing lights on the bridge is 5-10 minutes if you are not busy eating all night. It was a pleasure staying at the Hitomarukadan and I would love to come back one day. Note: all menus etc in Japanese only and I did not meet any staff who spoke English, this might be a problem for foreign visitors without knowledge of Japanese. The website is also in Japanese only. I had no problem because my gf is Japanese. I suggest non-Japanese speakers who are interested in staying there to send an email first and ask if you can get understood. You get clothes and slippers to wear inside the inn, but all slippers were about 4 sizes too small for my size 46 feet, lol. Note: we travelled by train. A taxi from the station to the inn was a cheap, 10 minute drive.
