We stayed one night in this traditional ryokan whilst on a cycling trip. We had a room overlooking the habour with tatami mats and futons and used the communal bath house in the evening. The highlight of our visit was a fabulous 6 course traditional meal in our own private dining room, the food was exquisite and the service fabulous.

We definitely wanted to stay in a ryokan at least once during our Japanese visit. The ideal opportunity for me was here, away from the cities where there were competing attractions. Setoda was small with not a lot happening but nicely situated on a little Harbour. The boat back to Onomichi goes from just across the road from the ryokan. I’ll get to the quality in a moment, but there was one big problem. I recognize that English-speakers like ourselves are spoiled as we travel, and that it’s not that big a deal not to have English-speakig staff. However, the rules and traditions and facilities of the ryokan do need some explaining to the uninitiated, and pretty close to none of it was made clear to us. We didn’t know where the Onsen was, what time it operated, that slippers were available to us, that the kimono was to be worn for dining, the Onsen rules etc. a simple multi-lingual sheet with this info would have saved a lot of confusion, most of which I got from a fellow guest. However, back to the stay. the room was big and while dated, quite comfortable. The Onsen was so relaxing after cycling from Onomichi. The food was incredible, and so much of it! The meals were very special experiences. Notwithstanding some of the language issues, the staff were lovely. Also a special mention to the lady on the street near to the ryokan who gives out orange pieces to passing cyclists. So warm and welcoming, and part of a memorable day and night here.

Suminoe Ryokan was a peaceful oasis with Japanese style comfort and courtesies. A beautiful central courtyard garden is viewed from all the passageways surrounding it. The Ryokan is easy to find - situated alongside the sea before arriving at the larger Port area of Setoda. We had a view of the sea from our room and could sit and watch the boats glide past. It was close to a quaint shopping street where there were a few restaurants. The onsen was bliss after a day’s cycling. Highly recommend.

We were booked a night's stay at Suminoe ryokan enroute the Shimanami Kaido. It is approximately a 35 km ride from Onomichi to Suminoe ryokan which we made in approximately 4.5 hours (novice riders) with a (sit down) coffee break on the way. The ryokan was fairly easy to find. We had wifi with us and written instructions. The shimanami kaido is fairly well marked with a blue line on the road that maps the shortest route. After arriving at Ikuchijima island via the bridge, we followed the blue line for a further 7 km (signs on streets re number of kms left to Imabari which is the final destination) and then stopped to check google maps. The ryokan was a short detour to the right from a T junction arriving at the seafront. There are no English characters to identify the ryokan but on entering the ryokan, there are big banners with the names of each (lead) guest that is due to arrive on the day. There is a bell to ring as there is no reception area and a lovely staff will come to greet you. Most of the staff are older women and they are very hospitable and warm. They are all able to communicate in basic English and sign language gets you the rest of the way. Shoes are kept on shelves before entering the establishment. Slippers are worn in the ryokan. The rooms are on various floors and are fairly large but slightly dated and worn. The rooms are very clean. There is free wifi with fairly good connection. There is a private, small toilet, but no private shower. This did not bother my friend and I as we had been in quite a few onsens prior to this stay. The public onsen (gender segregated) is basic and bare but sufficient, located on the ground floor. When I went for a morning bath, the lights were still off and the onsen deserted, but the bathtub was filled with fresh water. There are public washing machines for use (free, I think). The yukata was lovely but quite starchy. Stairs are quite steep and may not be suitable for less agile, older travellers. Dining is in private rooms with a hostess who serves you for the night. The food was some of the best we have had on the trip. Breakfast was also a delight (and much needed for the ride). Breakfast is only served from 8 AM onwards (most other establishments started earlier). We liked our stay but if novice riders are riding under time pressure on the 2nd day (we were trying to catch a train by 1 pm from Imabari as that was what was booked for us), I would advice staying in the next island as the 2nd half of the ride is definitely more difficult.

We stayed in a few ryokans during our trip to Japan and this was our favourite. It’s very traditional and peaceful, a few metres from the sea with lovely views. The women who run it are wonderful hosts, very helpful and welcoming. There is a place to hire bikes nearby if you want to ride the cycle route (which we did and would highly recommend). Evening meal was gorgeous - bowl after bowl of delicious morsels, including sashimi, tempura and a whole steamed fish. Can be reached by ferry from Omomichi or a 20km taxi ride. Beach about a 20 minute walk if you want to swim.
