Pros: The food was wonderful and everyone was very helpful. The rooms were big.
Cons: The hotel was a little musty and could use some renovation.
Pros: If you are looking to experience traditional Japanese inns (Ryokan) in Ibaraki look no further! About two hours from Tokyo by train, Kasama is a small town with a shrine at its center. Kappo offers ...
Adjacent to Kasama Inari Shrine and convenient for a range of activities such as sightseeing, business and golf - and of course with a range of delicious dishes.
A quiet accommodation nestled in a mountain valley. Soak in relaxing hot springs with 150 years of history. On site is also a rock bath that offers a sense of space, and a cypress bath with a calming fragrance. Savor healthy dishes prepared mainly with vegetables and look forward to hand-pulled soba noodles.
Pros: The hotel has an onsen and the water was very nice. Breakfast was good as well. The room looked out on trees and was very soothing. Nice location, though a bit far from town.
Cons: The staff were variable in their attention. All were quite friendly and they do a good job at what they do. But there is little flexibility when faced with a request that is not part of their regular ...
Pros: Breakfast&Dinner was amazing. 5 star food. Especially dinner was only 2,000 yen extra and you will get 9 course meal which would cost you 10,000 yen in Tokyo. There are no restaurant or shop ...
Cons: location. It was too far to walk to Mashiko town.
Mashikokan Satoyama Resort Hotel is a great choice for a stay in Mashiko. Guests can grab a bite to eat at one of the 4 restaurants and visit the spa to be pampered with massages, aromatherapy, or reflexology. Other highlights include a bar/lounge, and rooms offer LCD TVs and refrigerators.
Cons: The staff need to be more available, very understaffed. Breakfast was terrible and we needed to ask the Kitchen to open for our family. Our room had no curtains so sleeping was difficult. Payment ...
Pros: Has a fun pool & onsen (Japanese hot-spring). It's a nowhere place, close to local delights like small but crowd-free amusement parks, museums, children's parks etc...
Cons: As others have mentioned the lace curtains needs getting used to....
SPA RESORT LiVEMAX is a great choice for a stay in Mooka. You can visit the spa to be pampered with massages, body treatments, or aromatherapy, and Hanasaki, one of 2 restaurants, serves Japanese cuisine and is open for lunch and dinner. An indoor pool and a spa tub are other highlights, and rooms feature spring water baths and kitchenettes.
Pros: Beautiful setting, incredible old village-style architecture and working studio with constant pottery activity. Great place to meet other people interested in ceramics - and not just collecting, but ...
Cons: Nothing. Some might find the layout of the tatami rooms makes for little privacy, but it was no problem.
Pros: Within walking distance of the pottery shops of Mashiko. Good place for folk coming to experience pottery on a budget. You have to be prepared to look after yourself. Once we had got over the student ...
Cons: We got very little information online to prepare us for the Furuki experience. For instance, website says breakfast is 'Asian'. In fact no food is available. We arrived just on dark. No-...
Pros: Helpful staff. Good vibe, relaxed place.
