I give this ryokan five stars primarily for the extraordinary dinner and breakfast.
Dinner was immense and exquisite, kaiseki style, and an assault on the senses - with tuna, abalone and lots of local fish and vegetables beautifully presented on gorgeous pottery and lacquered trays, good local sake was also available.
Breakfast was fabulous as well, with a massive array of beautifully prepared dishes and local specialties, sizzling fish cooked at the table, whitebait, delicious soups...amazing!
The hotel onsen was enjoyable with a small outdoor area, but there was also access to the massive and slightly insane hotel urashima, a must do, with massive cave onsen overlooking the ocean and a festive vibe.
The room at the Manseiro was comfortable with views of the harbour and the ocean. Service was excellent throughout, although slightly bemused in dealing with foreigners.More
