The hotel is perfectly situated on a beautiful bay, less than 10 minutes walk from the Ryotsu port. They will bus you back and forth, but even with luggage it's not really necessary. For English speakers, the best part is Kanako, the host in charge of foreign guests. She is superb, and the time you spend talking with her is worth the entire price of the room. The rooms are exceptional as well, though, and the dinners superb. Only minus is that wifi is only available in the lobby. Maybe they will upgrade soon.
