Went there in December 2017, met up with Mr Seiichiro Tokuda. He showed us very sincere hospitality. The next day, he introduced us to his historic roykan. Through his vivid stories, we got a glimpse of what was like in the past. The place was neat, & clean. There is a Mipple shopping centre, & the oldest Catholic church within walking distance.

This is an old traditional ryokan with history in its walls - probably was amazing some years ago but it is not kept with care - neither the building nor the garden. We travelled for three weeks in Japan and this is the only place we cut short due to the hotel facilities (we had booked two nights but left after one). The bathroom was so tiny and rusted down that it was not pleasant at all. The room itself was ok, and had old «charm», I guess, but it was most of all just old. The view was nothing like the photos at Hotels.com or Tripadvisor. The garden had not been tended to at all and the whole place just had a gloomy feel. Location was ok - not too far from train station but a half hour walk from Amanohashidate. They do offer bicycle rental though, but not exactly cheap.

I love this hotel, a traditional hotel with roomy guest rooms. They have no heated tatamis, but worry not as you'll can hug those hot stone while sleeping.

You should order breakfast or dinner which was cooked in Miyazu style and tastes great! It is a little bit on the sweet side rather than savoury like most Jjapanese cuisine. However you should tell them in advance that you wanted to have breakfast or dinner otherwise they won't be able to prepare anything for you.

Don't worry tough if you've forgotten to reserve the food. This hotel is located in strategic location, as it is close many local restaurants just across the road, and a shopping mall 5 minutes away by foot, and train station is just 10 minutes away.

In addition to this hotel's lush garden, this hotel is located adjacent from public park and seaside.

Oh yes, you are not allowed to wet the wall as its traditionally made. Also for some rooms, the toilet was located outside.

Room tip: The room on 2nd floor north side got the best view...

We absolutely stumbled upon this place...only because I was an ignoramus and thought Kyoto Prefecture meant Kyoto city. But I am so glad that we did! Miyazu 2 hours from Kyoto and not easy to get to but it is worth a visit to Amanohashidate. About Seikiro, here are some pros and cons:

Pros:
- It has the most wonderful hot springs that are incredibly relaxing
- The traditional Japanese-style living was brought to life for us and we loved our spacious and comfortable room with beds on the floor (each with a hot brick-like thing)
- The staff were extremely warm and friendly. Although they barely knew English (only a few words), they took pains to explain what we could do around Amanohashidate and with a little bit of gesturing and flexibility on both sides, I knew exactly what options I had :)
- This was also the first time we had traditional Japanese breakfast, it was amazing
- The ryokan is well taken care of and clearly a part of local history, so we felt like we experienced a sliver of it too
- Close to the bus stop, 9 mins walk from railway station

Cons:
- The shared bathroom was a new and uncomfortable experience for us. Thankfully we were the only ones that night
- The town is so silent that it is eerie and not many eating options near by, so stock up before you get to Miyazu
- Internet in our room was spotty. Needed to get to the main reception area for better connectivity

Overall, I wouldn't have missed this experience of rural Japan for the world!

Cant find any reasonably priced good hotels in Amanohashidate. Location of this hotel is only 10 minutes bus ride from Amanohashidate and also offers an opportunity to tour
city of Miyazu before going to the next destination. Hotel is 2 minutes walk from the bus stop coming from Amanohashidate. Booked rooms with private bath. The rooms upstairs are fine (booked 3 rooms for total 7 persons). The slightly larger room on the ground floor had a "ancient" wooden drum as bathtub. The size of the drum is not a problem but the appearance of the drum is somewhat suspicious. Saw something like green mold of the surface of the wood. Can go to the showers in the onsen/public bath as an alternative. restaurant recommended by the hotel is very good (they actually took us to the restaurant to make sure that we wont get lost although the restaurant is merely 3 minutes walk away). Had breakfast in the hotel which is adequate. There is a shopping mall nearby. There is a observation deck on the fifth floor which offers great view. Few restaurants also on the fifth floor. A fairly large supermarket is on the ground floor. Miyazu is a quiet place. rarely saw people walking on the street. A few sighting seeing places all of which are within walking distance.
