I greatly enjoyed my overnight stay following a day of seeing noteworthy sights at nearby Hiraizumi. The ryokan is set amidst beautiful farmland. I received a warm welcome. The Japanese-style room was simple but good. The window and sliding door contained screens which admitted the fresh, clean air. Directly across from the property sat a well-tended garden, whose bounty the kitchen staff harvested and incorporated into the meals they cooked.

The gender-separate public bath offered an indoor and outdoor pool. The water was replete with minerals and served at a comfortable temperature. In line with the understated tone of the ryokan, the bath was simple, modest in size, and clean.

Dinner was served in the room. It featured a delicious assortment of fish, tempura, and outstanding beef. (It was lots tastier than what I got at a pricey meal in iconic Kobe earlier in the year!). The homemade soba made for a delicious and special ending to the dinner. Breakfast was...

My partner and I just spent two days at Shizukatei, an Onsen ryokan and restaurant located about ten to fifteen minutes away from the World Heritage attractions of Hiraizumi, in the middle of a countryside lined with rice paddies. Because the superb staff is willing to drive you to town, or to Chuson-ji (the foremost World Heritage site), and pick you up as well, their rural location is a plus, because it gives you a feeling of living in the lush farmlands of the area, while still making it easy to see anything and everything there is to see. The Onsen is fabulous, with both indoor and outdoor areas, the rooms are spacious, meticulously clean, and in very good condition, and the food, especially the dinners, are course after course of delicious dishes, very well prepared, and served in your room! Breakfasts are served in the restaurant downstairs, and are also elaborate, with many courses. I can highly recommend Shizukatei to anyone planning to visit Hiraizumi! More
