hotels and ryokans in japan

I like to read a book alone. Please tell me any recommended pleasant hot spring inns where I can enjoy reading, hot springs, and drinking. The price must be 20,000 yen or less per person per night in the vicinity of Kansai area.

I like to read a book alone. Please tell me any recommended pleasant hot spring inns where I can enjoy reading, hot springs, and drinking. The price must be 20,000 yen or less per person per night in the vicinity of Kansai area.

I love reading all day alone. I thought it would be nice to read a book in a different place for a change. I prefer a hot spring inn, if possible.

Long-established inn with the top-quality hospitality, service, and quality of hot springs

The inn was quite spacious and clean, and the staff was very polite, so I am so satisfied with our stay. The room was wonderful and we enjoyed a lot. There are three public baths with good quality hot spring water, and we enjoyed taking a bath relaxingly without overcrowding. The hospitality, service, and quality of hot springs were all top-notch. You can stay there within your budget.

While listening to the sound of the sea

Hello. How about Shirahama in Wakayama? The color of the sea is very beautiful. Tatami mats, spacious veranda, and chairs are in a room. It is my opinion, but I think a chair is better if you read many hours. It's also nice to read while listening to the sound of waves. The lounge is also spacious and comfortable.

Ocean view location

How about Shirahama Onsen in Nanki-Shirahama near Kansai region?
Not too close or not too far from the Kansai region, and I think it is a good location.
This hotel is inexpensive, and it is on the coast and has good views.
I think it is good for refreshing yourself, as the hotel also has open-air baths.

An inn surrounded by sea …

The entire island in the midst of Katsuura Bay is a hotel. To reach there is by ship. Apart from your everyday life in a remote islet, it may be a perfect inn to enjoy your time alone. It is very quiet as only the sea is around, and you can fully enjoy reading. However, the facilities are modern and perfectly comfortable. You can enjoy hot spring experience as there are open-air baths on the shore and such.

An inn you can relax

This hotel is one of the top accommodations in Katsuura Onsen.
You can dine in your room, of course, and their meals are fairly sumptuous. I think you will be quite satisfied with plentiful seafood, together with spacious hot spring baths.
I feel my heart is purified when I overlook sea from the room. I think you can enjoy reading relaxingly, as it takes about 3 hours by the Kuroshio express train from Tennoji, Osaka.

Popular hot spring inn among locals

I recommend Fushio Onsen Fushiokaku, where locals get addicted to when visit once. The charm of this hot spring inn is hot springs and food. It also offers a sense of comfort, with which you can go alone and read all day. Above all, it is recommended because of its proximity to Osaka.

A resort hotel nestled on tidal flat

Water fog, crawling on the surface of the tidal flat, is beautiful, as well as great views of sunset over the Sea of Japan.
There is no open-air bath, but the spring water of inner baths are in good quality and smooth, and a sauna can enhance your metabolism.
The room is such a comfortable space with clean air, and is clean with little dust, so it would be a good idea to read a book and spend peaceful time alone there.
It is located in Komatsu City in Ishikawa Prefecture, but it is surprisingly close if you use the "Thunderbird" super express train.

Quiet, delicious food, great service

It is a tranquil inn, conveniently located, going through a narrow mountain road just a little from Takarazuka with some hustle and bustle of the city. You can enjoy a bath with superb views or relax in a private bath alone. The meals offer delicacy after delicacy, supervised by a famous chef. The undisturbing inn structure also helps you to enjoy a graceful time alone.

An inn for grown-ups with elegance and tranquility

A graceful inn in Kinosaki Onsen. It is a peaceful inn, so I think you can chill out and relax alone. Also you can enjoy delicious crab from Kinosaki that makes your drinks even tastier. This is recommended inn where you can fully enjoy your stay, from autumn to winter in particular.
