There is literally nothing around the hotel. The town is very run down. This is my 3rd time in Japan and we encountered the worst costumer service in Japan, or simply anywhere around the world. We had trouble with our credit card payment, and the lady at the front desk gave us the biggest attitude ever. Her attitude changed 180 degrees in a second, after we tried twice and both failed - from all smiling, bowing, to refuse to say anything to us and it looked like she was genuinely disgusted by us. I'm still shocked till today that someone can do that. It turned out to be their credit card machine's problem, because I made a big purchase right after leaving and it worked perfectly. But even if it is our credit card's problem, NO ONE should never react that way. It was simply unacceptable. People always mention Japanese people have this "fake nice", and this is the first time I experienced it. I did not spend $800 dollar there to receive their attitude like this. It literally ruined my trip to Japan and made me question the entire country as a whole. Because of this experience, I don't plan to go visit Japan in the next couple of years at least.

Location: Excellent, literally outside of Izu-Atagawa Station, so you can get around the areas very conveniently. There is an express train going directly to Tokyo. I do have to point out tho, altho it will link to a JR line, Izu-Atagawa itself is not a JR station, and the closest JR station is about 32 mins away. So if you are staying in the areas for a couple of days, local subway is already quite efficient. If you are planning to get JR pass, make sure to space out these days so you don't waste it. Staff: Very warm, welcoming, attentive and provide great service. Onsen: There are ten types of onsens, eight are complimentary along with your stay, and out of those, there are two that take reservation, feels pretty much like a private onsen. Food: ご馳走です!More than you can eat! Local cuisines you must not miss. They also cater different menu each day so you will always be amazed what's going to be on the table. The staff will leads you to private dining rooms. Minor downside... The only mirror in my room is the small one in the bathroom, enough to do make-ups but not big enough for me to do my kitsuke and check clothes coordination. Hotel WiFi signal is very weak in the private dining areas.

We were recommended to this ryokan by a friend who has been to many onsen ryokans around Japan but keeps coming back to this one. We stopped by for 1 night on our way from Tokyo to Kyoto - the Superview Odoriko train was very convenient and the ryokan is only a few minutes walk from Izu-Atagawa Station. We weren't sure if we had the correct ryokan - until we saw our name on the door! The staff were super polite, welcoming and attentive, and while their English was limited, we got by with Google translate and lots of gesturing. The rooms were clean, with a small outdoor bathtub with non-stop hot spring water - great for a midnight soak! The dinner and breakfast were outstanding - live abalone which we each cooked in a little stone pot, sashimi (including lobster!), and much much more! There were 2 private hotsprings that you could book as a private hotspring for a set amount of time (the outdoor one was beautiful!) We wouldn't hesitate to come back! For the price we paid it was actually an absolute bargain considering the quality of the rooms, hot springs, food and service!

Welcome was enthusiastic in to a hotel with tatami mats on most floors allowing us to walk barefoot comfortably between baths and rooms. The rooms were furnished tastefully and in a classic Japanese style, they felt warm and offered a choice of beds or futon, we chose futon which was a different but welcome experience. The baths were quaint but could have been hotter in some however you can stay in them longer and chat like we did or bring young people in which helps confidence as well as the quiet of only a 10 room hotel. The food was above excellent, dinner and breakfast in the rooms was fresh and more than we could eat - one of our family said it was the best in 40 years of Onsen. When we left all of the staff sent us off, it was a warm and friendly exit and we would consider staying there again. When they heard we came all the way from London they even gave us a gift to take back. They were very genuine.

We stayed at Gyokusuikan this July, and had a very pleasant experience there. The hotel is conveniently located near the Izu-Atagawa station, and convenience stores are within walking distance. The hotel offers us a really authentic Japanese ryokan experience, with its extremely personal and warm service from friendly and helpful staff, and a great room with private hot spring tub. The hotel is small with no more than a couple rooms, so you almost feel that you are the only guest in the hotel. We had both dinner and breakfast at the hotel, and both are perfect. The only downside is that most of the staff here don't really speak English, so it is a little difficult for us to communicate with them. Also, the wi-fi in this hotel is barely usable. We had a great experience overall, and I won't hesitate to come back if I visit Ito again.
