We stayed here for two nights in this beautiful location. The indoor bath is fed with hotspring water that softens the skin, while the outdoor rotemburo with its heated seawater is an experience. The food is excellent - we never enjoyed bonito of such high quality. A recommendation for reaching the place: we went by train to Susaki where we had reserved a car from Eki-Rent-a car. A slight disappointment on checking out: for a 1-hour later the charge would be 2200 Yen. Despite this: highly, highly recommended.

We stayed one night in this fantastically located onsen-ryokan. Location is high on a cliff overlooking a bay towards the Pacific Ocean. We had the fantastic view both from our room (in the main building) and from the indoor as well as the outdoor onsen. Beautiful!! The indoor onsen is warm freshwater and the outside is warm saltwater and a small pond with cold freshwater. There is also a sauna. Excellent experience which I totally recommend. Our room was very nice with enough space for 4 including luggage. We also had our own mini-onsen overlooking the Pacific! However, there is room for improvement: - Staff seemed to try to keep us away from their neighbors, the small restaurant serving excellent tataki. Not a sympathetic trait... - We were provided one (n=1) medium sized towel each for the whole stay. That is not a lot, if you bathe all the time and for example have long hair. - In the room, we had one small towel in the bathroom for us all to dry our hands. It got soaked very quickly. - There was no complimentary water provided, neither in the room nor in the onsen. Especially in the onsen there ought to be a possibility to drink water, as you lose a lot of liquid due to the heat. - There were 3 massage chairs, but you had to pay to use them!!! So they were left unused. I find this quite tight-fisted. Either you provide this service to costumers or you don’t. You should not charge a few yen for a massage chair? - At places in the onsen the wood was quite damaged, which gives a slovenly impression. Suggest to renovate this. The food was good, I have provided review elsewhere. In conclusion, we totally loved this place, which we can highly recommend. It’s a world class view!

After six days sampling the Shikoku Henro pilgrimage, we traveled to Kure for two night's recovery. Met at the station by the inn's driver, we were immediately aware that this was going to be more than recovery. Kuroshio Honjin provides a level of comfort and friendly service beyond anything we had experienced at previous ryokans. The onsen facilities are incredible - both internal and external with fantastic views out over the Pacific. But the most amazing thing about Kuroshio Honjin is the food, which is Michelin star-worthy

This hotel is a perfect place if you like to avoid from hustle and bustle. Quietly and solitarily located at Kochi Prefecture, found at a peak facing Pacific-ocean panoramically! Traditional Japanese architecture, the interior design and decoration bring you back to old time Japan. The furniture, the teapot set, the clock, the tea table and the closet and so many other details you get in your room and the hotel concourse are pieces of arts. As this hotel is being so attentive to every detail, the food quality speaks for itself too! Our room is 305 which is very good one which you can enjoy the panoramic view of Pacific Ocean at the balcony. Sea breeze and the sound of mother natural makes you calm and forget temporarily "work"! Very spacious and you won't have any problems with doing your odds and ends. This hotel offers hot spring indoor/outdoor in a separate floor, but the bath tub in my room can be easily become a private hot spring, again Pacific Ocean view! Staff is very professional, exquisite , polite and very helpful in all aspects. My wife and I did not speak Japanese, no problem at all as several staff can manage English communication. Every staff there as far as we see are willing to help their guests for any enquires. This hotel offers pick up service at nearby JR station, a courtesy van is available to drive their guests to the nearby downtown, to see few sight seeing. Lastly we would like to take this opportunity to give our credit and gratitude to Ms. Komatsu and the driver who picked us up at the train station. Komatsu took great care of our visit all the way through from email enquiry at the very beginning to the reception at the hotel, they make us fall in love with Koch and this hotel Highly recommend this hotel for any travelers who love traditional beauty and culture of Japan, the people of Japan just so wonderful and admirable!

I landed here after trudging around the industrial outskirts of Susaki in the rain, and it was like going from hell to heaven. My tatami suite was beautiful, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the stormy Pacific. I loved the outdoor seawater onsen and enjoyed a second bath in the private tub in my suite before going to bed. The kaiseki sinner was superb and breakfast was delicious and filling. It was over my budget at ¥20,100 but SO worth it! I spent the next morning exploring Nakatosa town and enjoyed it very much.

We had a wooden house with traditional tatami rooms and a private balcony overlooking the sea. As usual in Japan they provide Yukata for the dinner and the visit to the onsen. The Sunrise view from the room was wonderful. Quiet location, tremendous dining experience. The dinner was a seven course meal and was delicious. You have naturally to love fish. The front desk staff were very welcoming to us as foreign tourists, though they spoke no English. The outdoor onsen with heated sea water was an experience and the view from the onsen is gorgeous. Hotel is located high on a cliff looking out to sea and a couple of kilometres by road to a very picturesque fishing boat harbour. There is a short cut track through the bush. Th e cut is an official tsunami escape stair and is well maintained.

Kuroshio Honkin is a ryokan by the sea, with rooms offer stunning views of the ocean. The establishment has just 11 rooms, and the wooden floors give a relaxed feel. The ryokan’s specialty is its outdoor onsen which uses seawater. The soak is really refreshing and leaves your skin so smooth! But a warning to those with small cuts or sensitive skin, the salt from the seawater will sting! The kaiseki dinner was scrumptious, very filling with many delicious dishes, featuring locally caught seafood. Breakfast was equally good. Beside the ryokan is Kuroshio Kobo, where guests can experience making katsuo no tataki (seared bonito) a local specialty. You get to sear the fish over a fire burning straw, and have it for lunch!

We had a traditional tatami room with a private balcony overlooking the sea. Sunrise view from the room was wonderful. Quiet location, excellent dining experience and the front desk staff were very welcoming to us as foreign tourists, though they spoke no English. The outdoor onsen was even cool enough to get into. I have no idea of how you would get here without your own car? We had a rental car. Hotel is located high on a cliff looking out to sea and a couple of kilometres by road to a very picturesque fishing boat harbour. There seems to be a short cut track through the bush that would avoid the road trip... could be an interesting track for bird watchers too.
