You could enjoy different sense of relief from bathing in hot water by laying in the warm sand using the heat of onsen which flows out on the coast. The heat of onsen surrounds your whole body with warmth and makes the circulation in the blood better. As the result the poisonous matter is excreted out of the body with sweat. It is the old health treatment that lately has been proving its medical effects. Let yourself feel the warm of the Earth while listening the waves on the beach.

We stayed for restoring our health after a big lesson. We had given up about onsen because one of my friend could not use the communal bath due to the personal reason. But they offered us private bath generously.(they seem to be the cooperator of Pink Ribbon Movement.) Moreover, they immediately replaced us to seat on chairs at the meals, when they noticed that two people from our group has weak legs. We felt highly of their services and consideration, by being supported genuinely according to our physical and mental conditions. My friends who traveled from far away, were all impressed deeply and pleased. Herewith I would like to show my gratitude. Thank you. + More
Although this was our first time to visit to Kagoshima, this stay made us be in love with Kagoshima… We had a joyful and pleasant stay in Kagoshima for 3 days, deep thanks to Shusui-En that gave us great home. From the moment that we had arrived to the parking lot, the staffs looked us after with beaming smiles all though our stay. That made us feel fully at home. Our room attendant named Shiho who look us after during our stay, gave us great treat in every occasions. When in the meals, she brought us even the sense of ease together with the delicious meal. Thanks to her, we could fully enjoy the delicacies of Satsuma. There was much thoughtfulness paid everywhere in this Ryokan; the food, Tokoroten jelly served just after the bath, and a bag to carry spare clothes. I could imagine the generosity of the staffs and it made me grateful to them and happy. + More
This was our first visit to Ibusuki. We had not planned anything and spontaneously asked a pick-up from Ibusuki Station on the arrival day, but they picked us generously. We spent a great time of comfort all through our stay, thanks to warm, friendly, and excellent services. Moreover, the view of beautiful garden from the lobby, the writings of Satsuma Warrior in Edo-Meiji period and various antique Satsuma potteries and the main building made me nostalgic and feel more at home. Their renowned meal was simple but cooked with great care that reminded me again their great sense of consideration. I had a great meal with drinking Shochu in Kurojoka, the Shochu server. I would like to spare more time to visit again. Thank you for the hospitality. + More
This Ryokan was fantastic as its reputation. More than anything, courteous, kind and warm services of the staffs made our stay pleasant. Although it was the trip with my parents at an advanced age, the staffs welcomed and took warm care of them from the moment of our arrival with the car. As well our room attendant was kind to us. The room was spacious, everything was clean and tidy and that gave us great comfort. There was everything needed, we felt the high degreee of their considerations. Onsen is not particulary big, yet spacious enough to bathe and relax. And the meal was great as their good reputations. We enjoyed fully both the dishes with fresh materials and the dishes that went through cooking. The dining is devided into private rooms and was quiet and contained. If I have another opportunity to visit Ibusuki, I would like to stay here for another time. + More
This was our first time to stay in this Ryokan. As their reputation of winning the first prize straight for 37 years in the cooking section of The Best 100 Ryokans selected by Travel Agency says. The dishes extracting the Umami of the materials was absolutely the best. Especially Grilled abalone in Miso sauce was awesome. We stayed in a suite room, which they have only two. The drawing, pottery, and scroll that decorates the room were all magnificent historical crafts. The supreme atmosphere spread in the air is the one that only the Ryokan with a long history would have. Their onsen has a half outdoor and an indoor bath organized tidily in a modest size. The water in the bath Is slightly tepid. A side of the bath tub is slightly tilted in the way that you can lean back and rest your shoulder against. I dipped myself deep till my neck, and it allowed me to stay at ease in the bath for a while. Although I got impression while bathing that the water was not hot enough, I was so warm and nearly sweating after going out. I enjoyed bathing and took a bath for 3 times through my stay; on the arrival, before going to bed, and after the breakfast. What made our stay fantastic was the warm care of the hotel staffs. From the response the receptionist on booking call, to the treats of Nakai, the room attendant, they had an exclusive attendant and looked us after in a very considarate way. Though words has limitation to express everything that I have, we could feel their considerations and ideas to create a pleasant feeling to the visitors. All my family were pleased and we had a quality time of intermission. Actually I had had an impression that the price is a bit high, but it was much worth staying here. It certainly made me want to come back here again. + More
