Awesome ryokan on a beautiful island. Staff were outstanding- very friendly and great service. Huge room with very comfortable futons. Big onsen closeby-- it was raining when we were about to go there so they offered to drive us there and pick us up when we were done!

My husband and I stayed at the fantastic Ryokan Sawaki in late August, whist travelling the Shimanami Kaido by bike and bus. This was our first ever night spent in a traditional Ryokan and the staff were all fantastic and understanding, explaining different aspects when needed. We enjoyed the small onsen, tatami room (which converts to a bedroom whilst you... More

Myself and my boyfriend stayed in Sawaki for 2 nights and found this ryokan outstanding! From friendly staff, beautiful rooms and unbelievable food this ryokan ticks all the boxes. I would highly recommend the seafood, it was by far the best I've had in Japan. Can't wait to go back next time I visit Japan.

We were traveling through Shikoku by car and the hotel is the base for our activities around. A bit about our travel around the area: In the morning we drove to Omishima and took ferry to bunny Island (Okunoshima). The ferry took only about 30 minutes (much less than from Hiroshima, which would take 2 hours.) In the afternoon, we... More

The hotel is a little bit old but the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Seafood is delicious! Better to book the room with bath and toilet. The price is not that expensive. Overall ,I think they are still top one Ryokan in Omishima.

Easy to find on the main road into town just past the temple, this ryokan offered a comfortable tatami room w A/C and a view of the hills.
