Hanajukai was an absolute pleasure to stay in from the moment we arrived to the moment we left! Situated on top of a hill facing the Seto Inland Sea, we enjoyed amazing night and sunrise views of Takamatsu city as well as the Seto Inland Sea from both our room and the roof-top onsen, which is the star attraction of the ryokan! Our Japanese-style room was meticulously clean, in pristine condition, and spacious. Other highlights were the impeccable and warm staff who made sure that our every need was met, as well as the 9 course dinner that featured vegetables from their very own garden and the local specialty, Sanuki Udon. The traditional Japanese breakfast impressed yet again, and we were left ruminating our decision to stay only 1 night in Takamatsu and Hanajukai. We certainly will be back again and highly recommend Hanajukai if you are looking for an authentic ryokan experience offering amazing views of Takamatsu and the Seto Inland Sea, delivered with genuine warmth and sincerity.
