Stayed 2 half board nights in Oct. Very nice homely, beachfront ryokan with posh interior and furnishings. Our room faced the sea and had amazing view of sun setting behind the Mt Hakodate. Beddings are good. Room clean, modern and well equipped. Onsen is clean. Certain part of the ceiling at the male onsen appeared to have balked and may need to be checked. There is 1 indoor and an outdoor pool - both looking out into the open sea. The hot spring water is salty, packed with minerals, but devoid of sulphur and hence its smell. Enjoyed the facilities and hospitality. The kaiseki dinner was artistic that was much appreciated and clearly showed effort and detailed thought in dish creation. Unlike some other ryokans, this dinner spread was not excessive. Breakfast was good and ample. There is a good ramen eatery about 3 minutes walk from the hotel, Ichimonji, which served excellent salt & miso based ramen. And gyoza. Truly fantastic, fast lunch option. Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this property. Thank you for your hospitality!
