Stayed here with family to experience a traditional Japanese experience. The ocean view rooms were really spacious and included a private bath on the deck. The course meals (dinner & breakfast) were very traditional and worth the experience. Some of the best meals we had during our two week stay. The hotel itself was a bit dated; a bit of an 80's vibe going on here, but the Japanese style rooms with tatami (straw) mats contributed to a tranquil stay.

Ever go urban exploring and find an abandoned hotel? Upon doing so, do you run away in fear of monsters and pathogens or take a step inside and try to imagine what the place was like in full glory?

The kurofune hotel allows you to explore the compelling purgatory between abandonment and old.

It is glorious. The arcade? From 1989. The telephones? From 1989. The photos and information in the hotel guide (they offer next-day film processing!)? 1989.

It is a living connection with the ruin of Japanese bubble excess and for that reason it is simply wonderful.

Internet? Hahaha! How about a 1989 fax machine?
The staff are great.

In terms of value for money, compared to a modern business hotel or hell, even a holiday inn, kurofune loses. In terms of character, though, I find the kurofune as second to none.

Stayed here one night in a room with its own rotenburo with an ocean view.
Overall great experience and for me worth another go.
The decor and guest events probably reveal the age of the owners/managers and therefore attracts similar generation people more but I'd say it's definitely worth a try if you're in the area looking for the classic japanese onsen hotel thing. The pool was cool. Food decent. Shuttle bus to station at certain times. Get one arcade, some kind of indoor garden, and the main onsen has pretty much everything you need.

Room Tip: get a room with a private rotenburo, i think they all face the ocean.

Kurofune is like a 1960s Rat Pack favorite hotel, if they had ever come to Shimoda, Japan. But with time, its glamor is fading a bit. Not run down, but it's a big hotel that requires a lot of upkeep and some updating, and they almost, but don't quite, do so. Still, comfortable, large Japanese style rooms with a nice view of the bay. Shimoda has a few nice sites, but you probably want to travel from here to other locations around the peninsula too. It takes some time - almost 3 hours from Tokyo - to get around. Probably packed in the summer with Tokyoites running away from the city, as much as a small town can be packed. Quiet the rest of the year. Restaurant only open in summer. I dig the hotel, and enjoyed the fairly nice onsens. But you're in small town coastal Japan, so don't expect easy access to lots of activities. Cute town to walk around. Oh, and that bar! Seats 9, and the food is fantastic - she just keeps cooking as you keep drinking. Tiny, between the town center and river... ask and I hope to have the address by then. A hidden gem. (Miyamae St. or the one before with Kaizenji Temple at the far end, on your left as you walk towards the river. Cloth hangs in the doorway.) For pastry, Mai-Mai Ave, about 4 blocks on your right. Unexpected items, all yummy.
Stay classy Shimoda!
