My partner and I just spent two days at Shizukatei, an Onsen ryokan and restaurant located about ten to fifteen minutes away from the World Heritage attractions of Hiraizumi, in the middle of a countryside lined with rice paddies. Because the superb staff is willing to drive you to town, or to Chuson-ji (the foremost World Heritage site), and pick you up as well, their rural location is a plus, because it gives you a feeling of living in the lush farmlands of the area, while still making it easy to see anything and everything there is to see. The Onsen is fabulous, with both indoor and outdoor areas, the rooms are spacious, meticulously clean, and in very good condition, and the food, especially the dinners, are course after course of delicious dishes, very well prepared, and served in your room! Breakfasts are served in the restaurant downstairs, and are also elaborate, with many courses. I can highly recommend Shizukatei to anyone planning to visit Hiraizumi!
