Sekiyou 石葉

 Time flows slow. Meals are sensitively well prepared. Further more, the hospitality and the service make every guest satisfied.
From young staff to bosses is thorough “hospitality”, it is beyond describable.  I could not write down every single “happy” hospitality here. I had heard the rumours of Head Chef Kase, who is still in the early 30’s, both dinner and breakfast were finished to memorize each dishes individually.  (by Tabelog reviewer)

Kinosaki Onsen Nishimuraya Honkan 西村屋本館

Expedia guest rating 5 out of 5, 100% of Expedia guest recommends this Nishimuraya Honkan. Kinosaki Onsen site itself has history of 1400 years as onsen bath resort for nobles, where as Nishimuraya has been here for 150 years.

This was an amazing experience, the perfect way to end our trip to Japan. To get the full Japanese experience you must stay at a ryokan, and Nishimuraya was stellar. The staff, the cleanliness, the authenticity was all off the charts. Go, go, go! (by Expedia reviewer)
