Our family of five just spent a wonderful night at Hakkei on 29 Mar 18. We went all the way up from Okayama to Maniwa just because we want to see the cherry blossom of 醍醐樱 and we are glad that we picked Hakkei to stay. The onsen is great and the food is also delicately prepared. We are also deeply impressed by the hospitality by the owner herself and all the staff working there. The owner and also some of her staff speak very good English (Waseem for sure) which is not common at all in such a rural area in Japan. We will surely recommend this place to our friends~

Thank you for the kind words for Hakkei. This time Cherry Blossom just began in Okayama, also from 1st April we started Daigo Sakura Bus. Onsen in a relaxing natural hot spring with Hakkei best food makes your family happy. Hakkei`s all staff is very happy with owner (Okami san) for your appreciation and good words for Hakkei. From all Hakkei staff, best wishes to you and to all family.
We feel honor to host you again and your friends too.

It was a family holiday and my wife found Hakkei through Mr.Chua Lam’s book. As what was mentioned in the book, the quality of the stay, the dinner, the breakfast and the onsen were exceptional. It was very healing and I don’t think you will get tired with Chef Masahara food even if you stay here for a week. He can even prepare vegan full course meal if you request when you book the room. You can sense the passion of the owner Uwashio san. Very well run ryokan which certainly deserves five stars.

Taisengyee san,
Thank you for staying at Hakkei. Hakkei`s specialty is good food and relaxing hot spring. Providing good quality food and hospitality, with friendly environment is very important. Many guests search for better place to relax, with that you will have good food is plus. In a year i found guests staying consecutive nights at Hakkei. Chef Masahara can prepare different variety of food as per season, so you will taste different variety every next day. And dedication of the landlady (Okami san) to serve best.
Kindly come again, it was nice talking and learning about good food in Japan, prepared at Hakkei.

Super friendly, polite and helpful staff. Amazing indoor, outdoor and rooftop onsens. Room is big and the river view is stunning. The hotel offers a pick-up at the Yubara-onsen bus stop. Food is delicious. There is a karaoke room with affordable price.

Room Tip: choose the ones with river view, its stunning; there are some rooms with bed too :)

Four of us are staying at Hakkei for one night of our year end trip in Tottori and Okayama. We are impressed by Uwashio san’s sincerity and passion to the guests. She brought us seeing the snowy mountain and having yummy ice-cream and strawberries from local. Highly recommend this lovely hotel if you visit Maniwa.

Thoroughly enjoyed our restful and relaxing stay at this lovely ryokan surrounded by beautiful green mountains. Our spacious and very clean Japanese style room (which had a massage chair to boot!) overlooked the suna-yu and the lovely Asahigawa River.The in-house open air onsen was stunning! Service was impeccable and meals were excellent! Awesome experience...hope to be back again before too long!
