I am so grateful that I randomly found this hotel for my solo trip in Wakayama! The onsens are perfect - the only setback is that there is no M/F mixed spa so that you cannot enjoy the nice view together with your other half. Highly recommend you to take a walk to the observation platform - just 10 minutes... More

We booked 2 nights here in a Japanese style tatami room with another couple who did the same. Arrived by train and enjoyed the shops on the way to the boat dock and on to the hotel where some staff were waiting for our exit from the boat and a guy and gal each took our wives luggage. We were... More

This is a very highly rated hotel so my friends and I decided to try this out despite the long journey from Nagoya and later to travel back to Osaka (abt 4hours local train). The pros of the place was that the food was abundant and excellent. Buffet breakfast had a good mix of western and Japanese cuisine to suit... More

I went there with my family including two young children. I think they like the hotel in general. 1. The hotel had helpful and friendly staff. Even some of them did not speak much English, they were patient to help us out. 2. Both breakfast and dinner were excellent. I found their dinners are very nice, on par with some... More

This is a traditional Onsen hotel. The guests are pretty much all Japanese. English is spoken by one person at the front desk..the manager? but otherwise you just have to make yourself understood...everyone has fantastic customer service . The waitresses are elderly and adorable. We had dinner in our room one night and went to town the other night. I... More

Food was great, hot spring outside was kind of small for women but ok! I've been to Katsuura so many times and it was first time to stay here.It's the same way to get here by a small boat with Hotel Urashima. it was very quiet away from the car road. once must!

All the different components of the Nakanoshima Hotel added up to a wonderful, charming stay at this huge ryokan situated on its on private island. A courtesy ferry runs from the tourist pier to the island. When we disembarked, a line of hotel staff greeted the ferry and bowed to us as we entered the hotel. Visitors clearly come here... More

This is a fantastic place for traditional Japanese service, food, hospitality and most of all the onsen experience. Our room was in the traditional Japanese style and once we were kitted our in our yakuta we headed for our pre-booked dinner. Our hostess invited us into your own private room with views across the harbour and although we are happy... More

We stayed here for two nights with dinners and breakfasts included in the annex that faces away from the town...and it exceeded all expectations. Unique and traditional experience for westerners looking to see how the Japanese vacation away from their big cities. The food was incredibly fresh and the service from Masa was above and beyond.
