Please enjoy the Chef's proud specialty.

The best local fish, "Jikinmedai" (a type of local red snapper)
"Jikinmedai" is caught with pole‐and‐line fishing methods by specialist fishermen during the day, from water 300-500 meters deep south of Izu peninsula and around or near the seven Izu islands.
This area is the best for "Kinmedai" because it's full of food, has an optimal water temperature and a good current. Therefore, we can catch "Kinmedai" that is of the highest quality, well fleshed and delicious in taste.
Because the "Kinmedai" catch is small, most "Jikinmedai" is served within the Izu Peninsula.

A similar type of fish called "Okikinmedai" is common as well, but this "Okikinmedai" is found farther out to sea from Kozushima to around Hachijyojima, it is fished in large quantities with 10-ton class large fishing boats going out for a week at a time.
As this not daily fishing, the catch of fish are kept in ice-water on the ship.

We provide the "Jikiinmedai", the true Izu brand which you can only have in Izu.
At our ryokan you can also choose a plan with "Jikinmedai" served shabu-shabu style with an original citrus ponzu.
If you choose this meal plan, it is possible to finish your meal with a special "Zosui" rice cooked in the shabu-shabu pot, which boils down to absorbs the broth of the "Jikinmedai".
Please come and experience our ryokan specialty; "Kinmedai" cuisine.

There were many open-air baths, the outdoor bath and the foot bath in the guest room were perfect for the autumn season. I regretted that I didn't come a little earlier. I felt there was a little too much food for my liking, but it was very delicious. I recommend the "Kinmedai" shabu-shabu style, and Zosui (rice) to finish. I was pleased with the service as we were celebrating a birthday, and needed to take many photos. I would like to go again if there is an opportunity. + More
I stayed for 2 nights on our wedding anniversary. We appreciated the English menu for my husband, also the wait staff's heartfelt kindly care at dinner and breakfast, all in all we had a very pleasant stay. Thank you very much. The hot springs and the private baths were very spacious and the hot springs along the mountain stream were so in harmony with nature that my husband said "this is my favorite hot springs ever!". At dinner on the 2nd day, the Temari Zushi (Ball-shaped Sushi) was served at first, sadly I got full.... but all dishes were very good, especially breakfast on the 1st day was the best ever. This was truly a Japanese Style ryokan, I enjoyed the passage of time quietly and slowly, and I would visit again. + More
I was very much satisfied with the attentive and careful hospitality, along with Japanese standards. After being well taken care of, I took it easy my spacious room and relaxed in the foot bath. The fish and the other dishes were wonderful, I felt the staff provided very good service. I was alright to skip the western portion at dinner, I just wanted the Japanese dishes in the course. Also, breakfast style is difficult to say which of the two, Japanese or Western, was better, the bread was delicious as reputed. I wanted to buy it if possible and take it home. The location was good, moderately quiet and I wanted to visit again. Since I got a good deal on the cost, I was very happy. It's a ryokan I can recommend to anyone. + More
We had a very comfortably stay this time as well. Although it was the last day of the busy season of Obon, the staff always gave good service, which I truly appreciate. Regarding meals, the cuisine changed every time I stayed, and the chef's effort and skill are very noticeable. We want to come back for the next season. + More
First of all, the bath is wonderful! Especially the "Yuzawaburo" open-air hot springs gave me an feeling of bathing secretly in a clear stream. The lush view of nature from the foot bath of the room made the time blissful. There's a sightseeing spot nearby, the Nanadaru (seven waterfalls), visiting these falls was wonderful. It's the best ryokan for a waterfall lover. Meals bring out the fresh taste of the ingredients and I liked that they did not make more work than necessary. + More
