We loved our stay at Ryokan Azumaya..It is pricey but I think all of the accommodations in this sweet little town are. The service was great ,the food was beautiful and very good. The rooms and common areas need updating. They are worn and outdated. I think for the price it should be a little nicer. The baths are great...

This was our next stop on the Kumano Kodo after Kawayu Onsen and offered a total contrast to the Fujiya Ryokan in that location. This ryokan has the air of traditional Japan, somehow time warped back to the 1950s or 1960s. It is faded and frayed around the edges, however I thought that this was part of the property's charm....

My husband and I stayed in a lot of ryokans during our Japan stay. We stayed here on our first kumano hiking night. This is a traditional ryokan with the perfect location. We had a huge room, with its own toilet and basin and the onsen was lovely (indoors and outdoors). The negatives were dinner wasn't very tasty ! My...

You may be surprised as I was when you walk in the place. It doesn't look like a fancy place. It looks old and faded. BUT the food and service are worth more than what you pay for the stay. So it's as if you get to stay for free. The dinner, served in your room, is as beautiful as...

This was our third ryokan experience, and to be honets, it lacked a bit compared to the other two (price was similar). While the building is quaint and charming, both the common areas and our room are in need of some renovations, and there wasn't any heating outside the rooms, so you had to endure the cold to go to...

This was our favourite hotel on the Kumano Kodo Trek. It had wonderful traditional baths - both inside and out and we all had a great time soaking away the pain of the walk. I will upload some photos to share of the beautiful baths. Highly recommended!

This was a great experience! We stayed here 3 nights and had it as our base for hiking parts of the Kumano Kodo. The staff was super friendly, they only spoke a limited amount of English but it was no problem. The breakfast and dinners were amazing! 15 small courses with wonderful goods. Even though we stayed multiple nights we...

Upon reaching, the staff brought us to the room and served us some tea. Room was spacious and had a small balcony overlooking the main streets. Went during spring and as the weather was cold at night, the staff provided us a bottle of hot water to warm our feets at night. Very considerate of them. Dinner was an interesting...

It is the most expensive accommodation in this onsen town. The suite with private ofuro probably can fit 6! All the necessary amenities of a ryokan is available. Food is reasonable. Not exceptional but some expensive ingredients used (e.g. wagyu shabushabu and deer sashimi). If here for onsen I would probably stay at a lesser ryokan and try out all...
