Our travels in Japan (including all other hotels where we stayed) were marked by attention to beauty, cleanliness, and detail. This hotel was the complete opposite: an ugly junk hole and complete rip-off. This place was a cheap, plastic, bachelor's dorm room interpretation of a ryokan/seaside hotel. It advertised all the bells and whistles at about $400 USD per night in the off season (!) and we therefore expected a truly romantic evening in lovely Japanese aesthetic.

Hotel is clean and modern, with Balinese decor. Hot spring on top floor a nice touch. Food was of good quality, but could be a little exotic for foreigners. Within walking distance to major attractions. Is conveniently located on loop bus route.

The best part however was waking up to the sun rising over Matsushima Bay. A view you would not forget.
