Nice shuttle bus to and from the train station. Although the hotel is "only 15 minute walk", the last 1/4 mile is uphill so if you are dragging roller bags like us, that 1/4 mile is a bear. And you walk thru a 1/4 mile tunnel too, so its not a great walk. That said, its a nice hotel with a nice public bath. Restaurant was great on site. And there isn't really any place near by to eat as its rather secluded. Great view of the mountains and Sendai Bay. Very competent. The doors to the room aren't fitted all that great. While I didn't hear hallway noise, you can see a gap between the door and the door jamb so its a bit alarming, but no problems.
I've stayed at the Taikanso a dozen times over the years. Though it's showing its age, it is still a resort in the grand tradition. As it sits atop a hill, it has the best views of the islands. The Washitsu rooms are beautiful and restrained. Although the buffet restaurant is scaled down from its former bounty, it is still an excellent dinner choice. The public baths are great. If they only had in room WiFi and laundry service, I'd give it a 5-star rating without hesitation.
Only came for a day visit and had the onsen to myself! Because the hotel is on the hill up from the coast, you get lovely views of the famous islands and bay from the outisde bath. Limited opening hours but for 800 yen you can also get a shuttle bus (which we managed to miss though!) and a little towel thrown in. We also ate in one of the restaurants (the Japanese one) which featured a classic range of high quality ryokan dishes at prices that are to be expected at a hotel of this kind. Nice lounges to relax in.
This hotel is situated on the slope of the hill over viewing the Ocean and islands. Very comfortable and equipped The view took our breathe away ! Little town is just below so you can hear the Bell in the morning mist.
After a day touring Matsushima Bay we arrived at this beautiful hotel. Our room overlooked the bay and islands with large picture windows. I could not decide which was more wow the view or the very large well appointed room which was all updated. Even the hall carpets smelled new. This was the first rural hotel that could compare with the hotels in Tokyo or Kyoto. Compared to other Onsen hotels we stayed in this was indeed a palace. The sheer size of the room and bathroom was a wow factor for us after traveling 3 weeks in Japan. Food is very large buffet for breakfast and dinner with many choices. Inside and outside Onsen but the outside one has the best views in Japan. Very few non Japanese here. Not sure why this beauty is still a secret but we loved this stop and the hotel is the place to stay if you visit.…
