Having lived in Japan for five years and experienced many osens and massage treatments I can tell you that 10,000 waves is as close to the real thing in the US. Go and enjoy, your body and mind will thank you.

Thank you for your review and we are glad you appreciated the beauty of our grounds. We are in the process of increasing the size of our locker and waiting areas. The project should be done this spring and will address most of your concerns.

Cate, Thank you for your review. We are glad you felt the spa suites were great and that Izanami was phenomenal! When you return, we would recommend our signature shiatsu massage if you enjoy deeper pressure with a more focused outcome.
