This modern style ryokan is located in Yugashima Onsen on Izu Peninsula, Shizuoka. The purpose of coming here, apart from enjoying the relaxation of the hotspring and the environments, is also because of the gourmet. And this ryokan has a French restaurant, managed by the renown chef Yuma Itoi. We have booked the River Wing Suite, with beautiful view looking...

This place is outstanding...from the wonderful attentive staff to the beautiful forest setting and incredible food that we still dream about. My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and want to thank Shin and all the staff for making our stay so memorable.

A lovely secret garden in Izu, the room has a nice view facing forest and a river where you can have peace in mind and enjoy the onsen in your own room. Choose a right time to witness the autumn and first snow in arcana Izu would be a wonderful experience. Very Glad that I have a chance to see...

Our second stay 5 years on and it was once more extraordinary. Quiet location, along the river where you hear the water flow while you soak in your own private onsen. The food at Lumiere restaurant is simply outstanding. The chef's are masters at their trade and the presentation of the dishes is second to none world wide. The rooms...

In terms of location, it is not near any train station as it is tucked somewhat in the wilderness. As we drove and with the GPS in the car, we did not have any problem finding the ryokan. We are very impressed from the moment we drive through the entrance. Lots of greenery and during the winter season, the trees...

We stayed here in October for one night with dinner and breakfast included. It was very relaxing and the staff was exceptional. One of the hosts explained our dinner courses and breakfast courses in both Japanese and English. The private onsen on our terrace was very relaxing. We hated to leave. If you stay here request a seat at the...

We ended our trip to Japan here - the onsen baths and incredible butler service are dwarfed by one of the most spectacular Japanese dinners and breakfasts imaginable. The meals are worth the price of admission!

We wound up here accidentally. We booked last minute because we wanted to go to the mountains. It was amazing. The rooms are built into the mountains and we were there in the fall so we had this ridiculous view of the colorful trees. And the outdoor onsen-wow! The room was all inclusive so we had all of our meals...

We stayed one night to celebrate a special occasion and enjoyed everything about the hotel. The serene surroundings, the private outdoor bath, the creative food and the ultimate relaxing in-room spa massages. All in all a great weekend getaway!

“I think the river view suite is good for more 'private' traveller as the onsen slate tub is open but recessed within the structure although there is nobody in the forest at all.”
