Watanabe Ryokan

You will find this small family-run ryokan at the end of a narrow alley lined with old wooden buildings, minutes away from the World Heritage site of Itsukushima shrine.

All rooms have traditional Japanese baths made of fragrant cypress wood, but what really makes Watanabe Inn stand out is the delicious Japanese kaiseki cuisine served in the rooms and impeccable, friendly service – no wonder it has such a good reputation and gets booked months in advance!
