Beautiful Ryokan right on the river in Matsue. Stayed for 2 nights and had a very nice and spacious room with a view over their beautiful sand garden, ranked as one of the nicest in Japan, and over the river. Food was just great, although as non-japanese we did not appreciate all the minute details. Don't miss Matsue castle !

Service from welcome to departure without equal. Every need anticipated before you even think of it. Cuisine to rival or exceed the quality of most Michelin starred restaurants across the world that we have eaten in. The choice of ingredients, the cooking and presentation just sublime whether for dinner or breakfast. The head chef, Hideharu Sato, and his team are...

This was my 4th time in this excellent set up. The service still outstanding. Overall a unique experience. If something worths a comment, that is a kind of renovation need in old armchairs in rooms, or old blankets.

Beautiful spot in central Matsue, with views of the water and fishing boats from the room. The garden is magnificent---ranked number 8 in Japan. Room is Japanese-style, and the futon mattresses are super comfortable. Food is nothing short of extraordinary. Set menus of local delicacies. The onsen is delightful. And the level of service is phenomenal, even for a country...

Or two. Or just stay in beautiful Matsue and never ever leave this enchanting place:-). The moment you drive into the property you enter a different world. The staff is wonderful and extremely efficient any time of day or night. After a warm welcome you are shown around, explained everything about the amenities, dinner times and so on. The hot...

I have stayed there for two nights in May 2008. My room was a Western-style twin room (the only one in the ryokan), which was very spacious. The design is absolutely magnificent, mixing with taste modernity and tradition. The ryokan also offers Japanese rooms, and Western-Japanese room (on the 4th floor) with private onsen (with view over Shinji-ko). The staff...
