hotels and ryokans in japan

I’m thinking to go to Izumo with my husband during summer vacation for a night or two in order to soak in a hot spring and visit the shrine. I’m looking for a small Japanese style hotel where we can relax and chill out.

I’m thinking to go to Izumo with my husband during summer vacation for a night or two in order to soak in a hot spring and visit the shrine. I’m looking for a small Japanese style hotel where we can relax and chill out.

Although I like a big Japanese style hotel, I’m looking for the one which isn’t so big but serves delicious food with homely hospitality.

Nice design

I just passed by in front of this hotel but I always wanted to stay at this very nice designed hotel. I’m sure you could have a comfortable stay at the room. I think it is better to look for nice restaurant around this hotel for food. This hotel is located close to sightseeing spots so I think the location is convenient.

You can have a relaxed stay at this Japanese style hotel

The view is great and I think this hotel is a perfect to stay at for married couple. I’m sure you can have a great time together with your wife in a leisurely pace while viewing magnificent view of Japan Sea from your room or soaking in hot spring at open-air bath with the view of sunset. I think this is a perfect place for visiting shrines and temples and world heritage sites.

A cosy hotel with delicious meals

This cosy hotel is located on Shinjiko in Matsue and the view is beautiful. A hot spring is great and you can eat delicious seafood and food from mountain at your room. I could enjoy eating crabs and drinking alcohols without caring other people’s eyes because I could eat at my room. It wasn’t inconvenient to go to Izumo taisha by rental car. I recommend that you rent a car as it is convenient for sightseeing around Matsue jyo. Sunset at Shinjiko was very great as well.

A homely accommodation with comfortable open-air bath

I stay in Tamatsukuri onsen when I visit Izumo and I choose to stay at this small accommodation with open-air bath. I could get coupons for street shops in ‘summer festival’ which is held every night by Tamatsukuri onsen town when I went there last summer. With these coupons, I enjoyed eating shaved ice and Shocyu and I enjoyed listening to the music. In addition, I enjoyed doing bingo game which is held every night by this accommodation. Tamatsukuriyu shrine, popular spot for female, is nearby by foot and the bus stop of Tamatsukuri onsen is next to this accommodation. I think good location is a big advantage of this accommodation. You can be picked up from JR Tamatsukuri onsen station if you tell them in advance so I always use this service. The rate isn’t so expensive and you’ll receive homely service. I recommend this accommodation.

You can spend a relaxed and quiet time there.

An accommodation inside of Kiyomizu dera in Yasugi city, which serves shojin dishes

I went to Izumo and Matsue trip for 3 nights and 4 days with my family end of this year and I stayed at this hotel for a night. I stayed at ‘Sun Rapo Murakumo’, a hotel of school mutual aid (non-members also can stay there), near Matsue jyo for other 2 nights. I liked both accommodations but Kouyoukan in Yasugi has more homely atmosphere. It was snowing so heavily and I was with children so I got a lift from them to go to bus stop. Dinner was full course of shojin dishes and breakfast was standard Japanese breakfast. Both were very delicious. You can enjoy soaking in hot spring at chartered bath which is recently renovated. Other facilities look old-fashioned as this is an accommodation inside of the temple. This accommodation is a bit far from Izumo but Adachi art museum is nearby and there is spacious beautiful garden.
