Mari's heart is the mind of "entertaining with sauce". What they think important here is to privide profound sincerity and hospitality and treasure an encounter of once-in-a-lifetime, with traditional sauce "hishio" (miso-like paste made from koji mold and salt water) made by island nature. It aims to be an "island ryokan" like guests can relax and feel this island.

In the middle of the Meiji period, around "Sato of Hishio" where Mari still stands, there were so flourished and were lined with about 400 soy sauce stores.

I arrived here by bicycle. When I requested to a staff that I wanted to park my bike in the facility upon my arrival, he immediately answered, "Then please park it in the balcony of your guestroom." and carried it to the balcony of the room. I felt that he might have arranged the issue even if my room had been with no balcony. Staff members were working in vigor, so I felt really comfortable. I could enjoy both dinner and breakfast. As I was travelling by bycicle, I was so tired that I slept like a log after dinner and I regret that I could not listen stories from a professional story teller. Thank you. + More

I was very satisfied with the bath as well as the concierge service of the staffs. Special mention should be made of the meal and when looking closely,each dish was well finished even in the details, so the meal was wonderful. I stayed at a detached room and it would have been better if I had had a pair of clogs without cords Also, I was happy that morning milk as well as a cup of coffee after breakfast were delivered to my guestroom. + More

This was my first stay. This is a hotel where I had been interested since long time ago and wanting to stay. However, as Shodoshima island is far from our place and not easy to go, we decided to drop by there when we planned our trip to Shikoku. My expectation was not high considering the scale of the hotel (sorry, I'm rude) but that was turned over in a totally positive way as soon as I arrived the hotel. Every service in the room or building and all dishes were colored by the hotel owner and his wife's sensitivity and beauty sense that marvellously harmonized with actions of the staff who support them. It would not have been nurtured and could not be experienced in anywhere else but Shodoshima. While 3 stars in Michelin guide are described as " Exceptional cuisine, worth a special journey" , I would name this hotel as "Exceptional hotel, worth a special journy" as a Michelin class. I additionally felt so because I had a meal at 3 star Japanese restaurant in Kyoto just a week before. Thank you all staff for your hospitality. I appreciate it. + More

We stayed at the hotel to celebrate both my wife's birthday and our wedding anniversary. We had a really good anniversary, and appreciate the staff members. I wish I could help by writing down everything, but rather than my insufficient words to explain, I want you to visit Mari once to feel everything. While giving the soy source I purchased at Mari which was age in barrels for two years, I tell people that I stayed at the best hotel ever and they should definitely stay there as well. I will come back in the near future. Thank you in advance. Thank you very much for your wonderful hearty hospitality from greeting to send-off. + More

There are hotels everywhere that treat the regular guests with care however it was the first hotel for me where they cared for the guests even when they were the first-time users and there seems to be the tender consideration everywhere. Thank you so much for having me. The room, the bath, the food and the service from the staffs, everything was perfect and satisfactory so it is hard to evaluate in a good sense. One point though, dinner was enough for adults however it might have been not entirely satisfactory if it was not for the room where you could add the food from the a la carte menu. There were many great things other than that, but the fact that not only the morning newspaper but the milk got delivered to the room, and that I could have coffee after breakfast in the room were the service that does not exist in other hotels and I found it very refreshing as well as happy. + More

it was a particularity high-quality hotel. The room in a detached building I stayed was large and clean where I felt calm and mentally soothed. For meals they paid attention to local production for local consumption. Every dish looked simple yet well-prepared. The way they showed how to taste soy source was impressive, and their detailed attention to the tableware was worth seeing. It really is a top-class hotel. I want to bring my mother next time, but because of the stairs in each room, I wonder if it is possible to bring her who has problem in her legs. From my viewpoint, it is a hotel witch offers top-class service and meals. This hotel is worth staying. + More

As soon as I entered the room I thought I would come back. The room, the food and the staff were all very good. And I was moved by the wonderful story of Twenty-Four Eyes by a storyteller. I would like to save my money to stay there for 2 nights next time. The only thing is that I was scared because the bike made noises and there was not much light in the streets but when I think about it, nobody rides on a bike until late at night. Next day, I was headed to Kochi by express train as the motorway was blocked due to the snow. I enjoy the dried sardine vinegar at home, as well. + More

This is a hotel only Shodoshima can offer, where you can enjoy meals that make the most of soy source and other local food stuff. The guest room was extraordinary yet convenient, combining a traditional Japanese house and modern equipment. Detailed attention was paid, such as the emergency exits and the ventilation fans covered with cloths, and I felt the owner's passion for every detail. The room we stayed was the one converted from an old warehouse. I understand that old building can be this comfortable by renovating like this. + More

I visited the inn I wanted to stay at for many years. The inn and the surroundings were comfortable and relaxing which freed from the everyday life. The facilities were not just wonderful, it was luxurious and well-maintained, and the food was really great too. If I could ask for more, I wish the bath was a little bigger. It's not much different from the bath in the room with its current size. But as the number of guests were few, I had a really quiet and relaxing time. + More

Although the facilities and service was wonderful, what was worthy of special mention is the tasty dinner. The food, which utilized the freshness of the ingredients, was amazing and goes well with Japanese wine. As I head towards the island on the ferry, I savored a taste of the extraordinary and recovered from my daily fatigue. I would love to visit again. + More
