I stayed in this hotel as part of our cherry blossom tour of central/north Honshu. we stayed in some nice hotels, but this was probably the most enjoyable. We arrived rather early, so we left our luggage and toured the Goishi coast. Beautiful. We then came back and checked in. There was one person who spoke perfect English, and whenever we were around, came by and made sure we have what we want. During dinner he came by to explain the dishes (see pictures), served us coffee in the Lobby after dinner, and the next day also made sure that the check out was smooth. Only then we had a longer conversation with him, and it turned out he was the hotel manager. It is this paying attention to details that made this stay so enjoyable. There is naturally an onsen, separate for men and women, the outside part overlooking the bay, dinner was plentiful (see menu) and is structurally different for the different guests. Their specialty ifs the swordfish head, but one can eat that much... In the lobby they announce the sunrise time, it is worth waking up, even briefly to watch it (see picture). Overall, highly recommended.

When you want to enjoy a hot spring or eat the fresh seafood dishes, and go around the disaster area such as Rikuzentakata, Ofunato end so on you should stay at Ofunato onsen. Especially, the staff were very helpful to foreigners in addition to Japanese. So, it was very comfortable. Moreover, the view from the hot spring is very beautiful. The sunrise that can be seen on Goishikaigan will be their treasure. 温泉を楽しみたい時、新鮮な海鮮料理を食べたい時、陸前高田や大船渡などの被災地を巡りたい時は、大船渡温泉に泊まるべきである。特に、日本人に加えて外国人に対してもスタッフは親切で良い心地が良かった。 その上、温泉から見える景色はとても綺麗。 また、碁石海岸から見れる日の出は一生の宝物になるだろう。

This hotel is located in Ofunato, which had serious damage when the great earthquake occured. So, if you wanna see the trace, you definitely stay at this hotel. You can easily go to Miracle Pine Tree in Rikuzentakata and see the history. Also, this hotel dinner was great, fresh seafood is deserve to have during your stay. Breakfast was brilliant too of course. All staff is very kind, and I really enjoyed my stay. The most memorable experience for me is hot spring of this hotel. When I was in public bath outside, it snowed! It was my first time to see snow in hot spring! It was so mystical! I really appreciate it. I'll definitely come back. このホテルの露天風呂から見る日の出は絶景です! 夕食のマグロは今までに食べたことのない別格に美味しいものでした! 心も体もリラックスできました。

Living in Singapore for many years, I have decided to stay at the Ofunato Hot Spring Hotel to enjoy the hot spring, seafood of Sanriku area and rejuvenate myself / my family. I heard that Sanriku area has been designated as GEO Park that shows the history of earth activity over 500 million years. Sanriku fishing ground is said to be one of the world's three biggest fishing grounds and it is easy to imagine that tasty fishes are swimming around the Rias coast line. The seafood coming out at the hotel dinner was awesome in taste, freshness and volume, and I felt the happiness of eating seafood near the fishing ground accompanied by great Sake. I had the opportunity to meet the owner of the hotel and I learned that he is a fisherman. No doubt that the seaweed which the owner picked up in the morning and the seafood which were chosen by the Connoisseur of fisherman are superb. I was forced to temporarily stop my slimming diet. I guess that the affordable price is also generated by his great network. The Hotel stands at the cape in Oofunato Bay and the sunrise rising from the horizon of the Pacific Ocean is exceptional and there was worth getting up early. The sunrise seen from the outdoor bath was also wonderful, and the large public bath where the sunrise light poured in looked very mysterious. Japanese hospitality style service is wonderful and I would like to revisit with my Singaporean friends next time. Ofunato Onsen Hotel, great job.

This onsen hotel is the perfect place to safely experience the beauty of ofunato. From the rooms you are exposed to the captivating sea and charming mountains, and the dining rooms provide you the fresh bounties of the ocean. The onsen (bath) is calming with its natural minerals, warmth and the view and breeze of the sea. The front desk sells ice cream made with milk from the region and I highly recommend the sweet snack. Finally, the owner puts the safety and comfort of his guests before his own profit. It is the archetype of the unique Japanese welcome, service and beauty.
