What I love most about this onsen hotel or ryokan is the ambience! We have a river-view room and the running river is soothing to both the ears and the eyes. We had the basic room, so if you have stayed in a ryokan before, it is exactly what you expect: tatami, futon, modern bathroom, small kitchenette. Our room doesn't have a shower though, but if you plan to use their public onsen, taking a shower there after the bath is no trouble at all. We tried out their foot bath as well located right by the river before breakfast, where you can be completely immersed in the surroundings and it’s such a refreshing experience! Their meals are definitely a highlight. It’s traditional kaiseki with fun little twists here and there, so it kept you interested throughout the meal (and for those who have sat through 2-3 hours of kaiseki dinner you will know that it can be quite difficult sometimes). The tofu in soy milk at breakfast was simple but spot on. We also visited the Makizonocho Falls and Wake Shrine that’s a mere 10-min ride from the ryokan, both sights are interesting to visit and perfect for a mini excursion before dinner. It was a pleasant stay and as the first stop of our roadtrip, Ishiharaso totally got us in the mood for the beautiful and magical Kirishima!

We spent around US$350 per person for one night in this hotel. However, we found the service and food are both below expectation in terms of value. The root of the problem is probably because they don't have enough staff - we were treated by a chinese speaking lady who was very friendly and well-trained. However, there were apparently too many chinese speaking guests and therefore the service is not tailor-made as the lady has to rush through tables. (I stayed in many high-end Ryokan before so probably I was a bit demanding and asking more). In addition, there was no one helping us to carry luggage after the check out, which was quite surprising. Anyway, this is still a good hotel but it's just not a great one. And it is overpriced.

This place is MAGIC. Nature, silence aytime exept for cicada's singing, excellent service (even if really few persons do speak English:)) and food. It's a perfect mixture between tradition, luxury, nature. The Ryokan is located 40 minutes by train from Kagoshima + 20 min. taxi from Hayato Station. It's hard to find ANYTHING in the neighborhood, so be sure you've got everything with you. The taxi can be reserved directly through the Ryokan, along with meals, which I recommend to reserve there (there are no walking distance restaurants. Maybe one but it's hard to finde English speaking people) Onsen are something you can't miss. You'll find not so many foreigners passing by, most of the guests we met were Japanese. Strongly recommended if you need deep relax:)

I came across this hotel randomly as I have been a fan of Super Potato's work. The hotel staff recommended us to stay in one of the western rooms and it turned out to be one of the best hotel experience I have ever had! The room consists of a living room, dining area that overlooks the river, bedroom with twin beds, kitchen and a semi outdoor onsen. I highly recommend this room for foreign visitors. The meals were prepared using mainly local produce and was beautifully presented and super delicious. Hotel staff are very attentive although communication in English was a bit of a challenge. Everything was put together perfectly throughout the entire hotel, it's definitely an extraordinary experience for a first timer in Kirishima.

I loved the rotenburo (outdoor onsen) by the water stream. The room inside the main building (honkan) was very clean & tastefully decorated, and the kaiseki meal was exceptionally delicious. I definitely want to stay there again and highly recommend m-Ishiharaso to everyone.
