I am a bit disappointing to stay in this hotel as the hotel is quite old and there is no outdoor hot spring. The hotel room is spacious and the service is excellent. Dinner is fantastic. They have bicycle for rent but the functionality is not that good, and more expensive than that I saw near train station. They also... More

There are a couple of small ryokan in Hiraizumi, but none can beat the location of this Japanese-style onsen hotel. It is right in the middle of all the sights you come to Hiraizumi to see. The tourist loop bus stops right out front, so it is easy to get to the few sights that are a longer distance, although... More

I stayed here just one night after sight-seeing in Hiraizumi. The hotel is located right in the middle of the World Heritage site, so walking to the temples was no problem.

I just turned on a rainy night when the town was deep in snow and slush. I booked in with dinner and breakfast. The in-house onsen was a blessed escape from the weather outside and the dinner excellent. The room, as they hastened to assure me, was small and Western style but it was clean, warm and comfortable. It was... More

The rooms are a little basic, but given you should be spending your stay at the Unesco heritage sites, the surrounding area (we'd recommend a daytrip to Geibikei gorge) or in the excellent on site onsen, so what. The kaiseki style multi course dinner is truly fabulous. Breakfast is nearly as good. From the outside this place looks very ordinary.... More
