Shoheiso takes pride not only in natural hot spring bath, including a cypress bath built from a 2000-year-old tree, but also authentic Japanese style cuisines.

It was our first stay at Shouhei-Sou. Also our first visit to the Izu-Nagaoka area. We enjoyed our time in Mitsu sea paradise and Hiruzen hansharo which was registered to the UNESCO natural heritage, and stayed at Shouhei-Sou to end our trip. We had heard good reviews of the food but it was all above our expectations. The food not only looked great but it was really delicious and we had a little too much to eat. The Japanese style Kaiseki for dinner and breakfast was all impressive under the supervision of a Meister chef. The hospitality of the service staff was spectacular. We enjoyed both of the large baths, and we stayed in a cottage. There was a small museum in the New building which was relaxing too. We felt the hospitality from all the people working there and we thought it was a great place to stay at. Although we noticed some very young service staff and thought they were a little in-experienced but we felt their warm hospitality so in the end it was all good. We will come back to Shouhei-Sou for our next trip to Izu-Nagaoka. + More
We had not been to Izu in a while but I am glad to have discovered this great place. The quality of the food and the hot-spring was spectacular and we are very satisfied. We noticed attention to the details in all food menu, the china they had selected and we could feel that they really make an effort. The hot spring had a simmering texture which was very nice. You sometimes get tired of hot springs on a short trip but their hot spring was really relaxing. the details in the bathrooms were impressive too. All rooms are equipped with Tempur pillows and my mother found them to be very comforting for her sleep. The service staff were all polite, only assisted when we asked which was a great point for me. Since I took my mother with me, I noticed it will be nice to have a hand rail at the entrance of the bath. My mother has a bad leg and as she was entering the bath, the other guests advised us to be careful because the entrance was a little slippery. The room wear is clean but we thought they were a little tatty, maybe a new set will be better. Next time we would like to stay in a room with the garden view. Thank you very much. + More
We had stayed here for several nights last summer and this was our visit since then. We always appreciate the heart warming service at Shouhei-Sou. We chose the Kaiseki with a selected main dish, but the serving amount was more than enough and the quality was great. We were lucky to be able to taste the sea eel soup which was just entering season. At this place we can enjoy traditional Kyoto Kaiseki, without traveling all the way to Kyoto. The manager was very considerate and we had a pleasant stay. We will love to come back again next year. Thank you very much. + More
We stayed at Shouhei-Sou for the first time for my boy friend's birthday. The whole place was really clean and beautiful, the hospitality of the service staff was great too! I had told them that it was his birthday, and they had a gift for him which was very nice. The food was delicious, the special soup using the siphon, the dressing on the salad at breakfast were my favorites. The restaurant was separated privately, although it was not a private room we felt enough privacy. I did notice the rice was not warm enough, and it took time for the service staff to come to serve us, which was something they could work on. Even though some issues, it was all a great stay. The sea eel soup sounds tempting so I will be back again in the summer time. + More
We stayed here in the spring holiday. Thank you for the room upgrade. It was a great room and we had a relaxing time there. The food was delicious and the serving amount was good too, we could enjoy until the end of the course. The children loved the western breakfast. The space between the guests and the service staff was balanced which was great for relaxing. All in all it is a well balanced accommodation and we would love to come back. highly recommended. + More
