Kaiseki is the traditional, multi-course dinner, served in your room and it is a Japanese experience worth having. It is delicious and different every night but it does repeat after 3 or 4 days. You will remember this meal all your life but you DO need to be open minded about food. Not even native Japanese will know what you're served so if it's a big deal you tried octopus balls in Osaka, save your $ and stay in a hotel. Ryokans are expensive by western standards but the Iwamotoro is worth the expense. The bath is sublime. Men and women have seperate baths and they are totally different. One is a tunnel carved out of bedrock and the other is a Roman bath look-alike with stained glass. They alternate every day so you can use both. (I prefer the tunnels). The hotel provides a yukata and slippers. The hotel location is wonderful. It's right on the main shopping street, a short walk (uphill!) to temples, restaurants, the cave and shopping. Every room has a view of Fuji. Head to shore past the beach (yes the beach is right there) and catch the Enoden railway. (1/2 mile down causeway and straight on down the road) That will take you to all the sights like the Daibutsu and the shopping streets in Kamakura. If there is something I wasn't thrilled over, it's breakfast. It's a traditional Japanese breakfast and you have no other options. I don't much mind eating sweet scrambled eggs but I hate the Ika-no-shiokara (salted prepare squid guts). Oh well. There's toast and coffee. If you want a true Japanese experience, few westerners ever go here, the Iwamotoro is worth it. PS the rooms are good sized (for 2 people) with tatami floor and each room does have a Japanese style bath, (western) toilet, and mini bar. The staff will set up a table for dinner, take it down and unroll futons on the floor for your bed. Wi-fi (free but you have to sign up) is in the lobby through a 3rd party vendor. Coverage gets spotty in the rooms but it worked for me.

I stayed this place twice. first with my Russian wife,second company colleague 12 men trip. style of this hotel is old Japanese hotel,included diner and next day breakfast. for foreigner , you will enjoy some how to staying to feel Japanese traditional style. my company colleague also enjoyed especially elder age men. view from room is beautifull, dinner is also fine.but as level of service and price,I will not stay more. this hotel is just good to stay at enoshima island but if you do not need to stay enoshima island , no need to use it.
