We spent 4 nights at Inn Seiryuso in August 2016. This ryokan although no as luxurious as Hiragiya in Kyoto, has all the charm and excellent traditional service of a real Japanese inn. We stayed in a Japanese deluxe with private onsen n° 103 which was really gorgeous apart from (it seems) having hosted President Carter on his viti to... More

We stayed one night in this retreat. On the one hand very modern, on the other hand very traditional. Modern because the facilities are state of the art. Traditional: shoes off, food. One must realise, ad a Westerner, that staying in a ryokan is an experience in itself. There is no hotel bar, no olave to meet others (except in... More

Wonderful wonderful place. Not cheap, but well worth it. Lovely traditional tatami rooms. Recently refurbished. Excellent food. Lovely service. Exceptional onsen. And the best bit is that the large swimming pool is full of onsen water so it's very warm. A perfect place to stay if it is bad weather. This ryokan is not by the beach like most others... More

This place is so luxurious. There is nothing bad about it, it is a little pricey, but worth the splurge for the night. We had a beautiful suite, with our own onsen both inside and outside.

It's always great to stay at Relais & Chateaux member hotel for a nice getaway. We chose Seiryuso in the Izu area for its famous traditional Japanese cusine. And I also love how the name Seiryuso sounds, it means Clear River House, which is true, Seiryuso was surrounded by a river. The place was really rural, but in a peaceful... More

Serenity and calm reign in this vast park bathed in Izus light. A flagstone walk flanked by 100-year-old willows and a lovely stone lantern leads to six pavilions admirably arranged in the purest Japanese style. Pure water from on-site hotsprings replenish the external pool, which is open all year long. Casa Vino, renowned for its refined cuisine, offers primarily fish and wines from around the world. ... more   less
