a ryokan (Japanese inn) which is a "hidden jem" which does not advertise via 3rd parties. The services and food is so good that repeat customers kept their bookings full a few months in peak periods and rarely empty during the off peak months. Loved by Japanese and long term expat residents, this is a gem I hesitated to write a review on for fear of overtaken by tourists spoiling the peace and serenity for loyal long term patrons. No big groups when we were there and even check in is so quietly done and smooth. no one speaks loudly and everyone smiles at you giving you space and peace to enjoy the tranquil surroundings listening to the waves....and u enjoy the same views and sound of the rushing waves from the comfort of your room. the glass windows can also be open up to allow the breeze in.

Room Tip: ask for high floor sea facing

Recommended by my Slovenian colleague who lives for 20 years in Japan as the best ryokan/onsen experience his wife managed to find for him in Japan. Staff super-dupper friendly, the dinner and breakfast of the delux experience - I have eaten a lot of Japanese food in Japan and around the world, but the quality of food was superb. Not cheap, but worth of every single yen. We were there with kids and they were delighted by the whole experience of the Japanese traditional dinner.

Exceeded my expectations - if you want a place to relax, listen to soothing ocean waves as it lulls you to sleep, feel pampered and enjoy fine dining in your room - then this is the place. Located about two hours from Tokyo by train - Izu Inatori is a small town - two lane highway - and a train station located next to a quaint market.
They responded to all of our emails and answered our questions. Professional, patient, courteous, and sense of humor - since I spoke no Japanese and pantomime some of my words - we both ended up laughing out loud.
The rooms were comfortable, clean and well maintained - outside bath/onsen water temperature was perfect.
One thing everyone needs to know - the food served was outstanding and included a lot of raw as in not cooked and did have some cooked main dish. Fresh sashimi (locally caught fish called gin-me-dai or golden eye snapper) in all types of dishes mixed with local grown vegetables. If you are not use to eating raw items - just give it a try - at least immerse yourself in the culture and onsen and take the time to really look at the detail in the presentation of the food served. Breakfast and dinner are the only meals served - and there are no restaurants located in the hotel. Across the train station is a little shop that has baked items and sweets. The market also had some fresh fruits, sandwiches, bentos and food items for purchase.
Hamanoyu staff members come from different areas of Japan. We were pleasantly surprised you are assigned a dedicated staff member for your entire stay who spoke some English.
We were very impressed with the service, excellent fresh seafood and beef and spectacular ocean view. We would definitely return and highly recommend this place.

Spent 1 night after spending a day at Kawazu Sakura Festival as the ryokan is just 2 stops (or 5 mins via train) from Kawazu. The room we booked had a view with a hammock where you could fall gently asleep while reading a book. Our package included a special gourmet dinner with add-on catch of the day sashimi. Well worth the extra expense for the experience and best to book on the hotel's own reservation site for the full range of package options. The hotel's website advised guests to manage as light a lunch as possible and they were not joking! The menu featured seafood, especially the prized Kinmedia fish in many ways (sashimi, shabu, broiled). The roof-top onsen was lovely for its night view and sunrise. The private onsen that we booked for 1 hour, totally enjoyable. Facilities are well kept. The hotel had checked with us prior to arrival on our spoken language and assigned a lovely staff, Yuka who spoke perfect English and took care of all our requests perfectly. You can tell that the hotel frequently hosts international travelers. From the time we were picked up from the station to the time we left - we were well looked after. Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Corner suites have good views.

This was a wonderful onsen/ryokan and perhaps the best I've stayed at so far. It is easy to reach the station (Izu Inatori) and from there, they have a free shuttle to take you to the hotel. Our room had a private onsen, but there is the rooftop onsen that has stunning views of Izu Peninsula. The food was beyond amazing and they can accommodate non-meat eaters (only seafood). Our room hostess spoke English, so when we the conversation became too advanced for our Japanese, she flawlessly switched to English. They even provided an English translation of the menu. The rooms were big, bright and clean. I loved it and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for nonsmoking.
