We came for lunch and ordered lobster and seafood curry lunch sets respectively. The restaurant has a stunning view towards the peaceful bay. The food was very delicious but I found the lobster set (¥14,000) a little bit light.

The hotel is situated in a beautiful area of Japan not far from Ise Jingu. (about 20 minutes by car). The hotel restaurants are very high end so if you are looking for a reasonably priced dinner then you need to look elsewhere. It was interesting that they had the table setting for the G7 Summit where all the world... More

I remember walking down that... More

The hotel building is old but well maintained. We stayed in a Japanese-Style room and it had a new plasma TV and the bathroom also seemed that it had been refreshed in the last few years. The room was clean and they supplied nice towels (unusual for most Japanese hotels). There is not much to do around or even in... More

Really enjoyed my 2-night stay in a Japanese style room that I booked through JAPANICAN. Comes with breakfast and dinner at the French restaurant, La Mer. The room was just like ryokan style and it's bigger than the standard twin room. It was clean and had a great view of Ago-wan. What I like about the place was that it's... More
