We chose to stay at Funaya mainly due to its location. It is only 5 minutes away from the Dogo Onsen area, which is one of the key tourist attractions in Matsuyama. While the hotel is quite dated, it was in decent shape and clean. Our room was incredibly spacious (especially when compared to our cramped night staying in Kochi),...

My wife and I chose Funaya at Dogo Onsen for it's close proximity to Dogo Onsen Station. It is truly just a few minutes walk. We arrived unexpectedly late into Matsuyama Station, so opted for a taxi instead. The cost was less than 1000 yen. When we arrived, we were immediately greeted at the door and our luggage was taken...

I stayed probably close to a hundred onsen hotels in Japan over the years and Funaya is probably the worst I have ever stayed. Funaya ranked not bad in tripadvisor and has a website that is rather misleading. I must hate myself for believing the content of the website. The layout and furnishing of lobby reflects that it is not...

Lovely room. Excellent service. Food - both dinner and breakfast was absolutely delicious - served in the room. Bit disappointed with the onsen - it was very rowdy in the evening but I suppose it is a bath! Onsens were swapped in the morning and it was much more peaceful.

We arrived quite late at night (after the restaurants closed) but they provided a pair of rice balls (onigiri) as a courtesy. So we decided to have lunch at this hotel, which was superb with local specialities. We also asked the hotel to hire a tourism taxi for four hours in the next morning. The driver was a veteran and...

We stayed here for 2 nights in January 2015. From the moment we alighted from the taxi to the moment we got back in, the service was exemplary. Although none of the staff spoke more than a few words of English, communication was not a problem. We stayed in a Japanese room and slept on the floor on futons. The...

After a long 2 hour drive from Iya Valley, we finally arrived at Matsuyama. As with most ryokans, check-in is in the mid-afternoon. Thus, we took the opportunity to visit Matsuyama Castle and rode on the Batchan Train. At the hotel entrance, we were warmly greeted by staff and our luggage brought into the large welcoming lobby, similar to a...

If you can afford it, try this hotel. A really traditional Japanese experience. Reception staff can speak English and give good advice about the town. The Onsen is excellent, you don't need to visit the Dogo with this in your own hotel. The breakfasts are amazing, the best we have had anywhere....but I would avoid the fermented beans, I think...
