A Fantastic Experience
I would recommend this place to anyone looking for the traditional Japanese experience. It’s location is perfect, right above one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. Their shuttle to and from the train station is great and the people are fantastic. I definitely recommend the traditional Japanese dinner which was one of the best meals that I’ve ever had.

Great place to stay
We really enjoyed our stay at the Simodakan. Service was great, foods were exceptional and especially the hot tub in the balcony was lovely. Only slight downside was the speed of WiFi in the room which was difficult to connect and very slow sometimes. However it wasn’t a big issue at all. We strongly recommend this hotel and would like to come back there in some future.
