We had wonderful experience staying in ryokans specially at the Hotel Kanyo.We liked the tatami floor and the mattresses to sleep.Could see the sun rise at 5.40am from the room and also the pacific ocean.My husband wore Kimono n went for dinner.Our room number was 1001.Thanks to our friend shoichi n Yoshiko.The food specially the japanese dinner was excellent.Very very different and healthy too.We were thrilled to see the live shellfish and the rice got cooked on the table.The staffs were very nice.Only Thing is we could not go to Public bath.The souvenir shop was excellent.Best thing is we could meet the owner and took a group photo with her.She is a very nice lady and have heard about her from our friend Yoshiko.

Sushree2014-san, thank you for your good comments.
I am very happy to know you have experienced Japanese Ryokan as we are one of the tipical and local authentic ryokans in Japan.
I hope you come back to Japan in a different season as our country shows another beauty in a different colour and different taste.
Thanks again!

I selected this hotel to hear the real story of Tsunami. This hotel has the tsunami devastated area bus tour with storyteller. It was about 1 hour drive, but I could hear what happened after the 3/11. I can't experience it at usual life.

The room has enough area and one bedroom. Hotel has 2 onsen, 1 has open-air bath and sauna room. Scenery from the room and onsen were excellent. Dinner and breakfast were delicious. Hotel has the little library collecting manga, my sons enjoyed reading them.

Seagull could be seen from the room. Maybe they don't afraid human but little bit noisy.

One of the more beautiful places I have ever stayed--remarkable views, beautiful rooms with a combination tatami and western style bedroom. Magnificent outdoor onsen, and fantastic buffet style dinners with some of the best sashimi I have had in Japan. Moreover, a great place to spend your money, since the hotel owner and staff worked tirelessly to restore the community in the two years since the Tsunami. They opened the hotel as a shelter for many months and still maintain a library and classes for local children. I was humbled by their courage, and by their almost magical ability to create a joyful place of peace in the midst of such devastation.

Emily P-san,
Thank you for your nice comments.
I am working in this hotel, but I believe our sashimi is one of the best in Japan as freshness.
Our place is being recovered after tsunami, therefore I hope many of people come to see how we are getting better than past years.
I hope to see you again. Thanks again.

During our stay in the tsunami-devastated Miyagi prefecture, we stayed at the Hotel Kanyo for one night. The hotel is located just outside the tsunami hit area of Minamisanriku, but the hotel is intact and fully operational. We stayed as part of a business trip, for one night. The hotel itself was lovely, very clean and everything is shiny. The decor is a bit dated but the upkeep is phenomenal and the hotel looks like it was beamed straight out of 1988. Rooms were traditional Japanese style, sleeping on thin mattresses on the floor. If you're in Japan, you've got to try this at least once!
The hotel staff were fantastic and extremely friendly and gracious, despite the horrors that the region has been through. We felt good spending our money in this hotel as we could see the hotel supports the town. The onsen (hot baths) is apparently quite famous and is definitely worth a go - the outside one is a great experience. The traditional Japanese food we had was lovely - fresh and tasty. You could tell in it's heyday this hotel would have been the bees-knees - complete with swimming pool and views over the bay.
Overall, if you're in the area it's worth a stay here. Especially at the moment, the region could do with the boost.
