we travelled directly from Kansai airport to Shirahama and took us around 2.5 hours with JR. It's really fast and easy to reach out the hotel by the bus at the Train station. The onsen hotel is super nice and it is not a packed hotel with lots of tourists. The room is well facilitated with super comfortable beds and...

It is quite disappointing and I think people shouldn't take the hotel photos too seriously. They are quite misleading. I thought I was putting too much expectation to this hotel. It looks so beautiful and was so tempted by the promotion, (but the price is still high) I wouldn't go and try. Whatever I asked the hotel staff keep saying...

This is my second time staying with Kaisyu - glad to have tried all the 3 private onsens this time without waiting! Been here in April and stayed by myself - only had chance to enter the Stone private spa, yet the view from the mixed spa was unforgettable. We picked a room with private bath located on ground floor...

Shirahama is some distance from our main agenda of Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe and Arimaonsen. We almost wanted to skip this area but reading reviews of Kyushu made us really want to go. The JR from Kobe was about 3 hours I remember. We stayed two nights, and out of three onsens visited during that trip, this was by far the...

Although there are 3 private onsen but we never had a chance to get the key during our stay. The public onsen is a bit small & it was quite crowded the days we stayed. Two good things: free ice-blocks outside the public onsen & free ramen during 10 - 11pm (both were yummy!!). Nothing special with their dinner &...

Probably the most up-market onsen in the Shirahama district. Most rooms are Yen35000-50000 for 2 including dinner and breakfast. Service are fine and well thought of. We went there on a friday. There are 3 private plus one unisex open onsens which they will provide special cloths for you. We were able to get a slot for one of the...

My overall comment is that it gives u what u paid for. Location is good but you can't walk to the beach, if you drive, it will take you less than 10 min to get to the beach. They have different onsen, with private onsen if you are lucky enough to get the key. I appreciate the ice-cream or drinks...

If you are hot spring lover, you couldn't miss Kaishu! It's the best hotspring hotel I have need had. Both indoor and outdoor hotspring are excellent and you could feel your skin smoother right after . Especially for the outdoor one, you could see the beautiful sunset while you are enjoying the hotspring. Another highlight is the three free of...

Stayed here for one night with my wife. I drove there and it was easy to locate. Plenty of parking space. We were warmly welcomed. The room was exactly the one I booked which was ocean-facing but the room was on 2nd floor therefore the view was mostly blocked by trees and other buildings. The room was large enough and...

We are a group of 15. This is a hotel that never let you hungry. Other than breakfasts and dinner, they serve free coffee in the morning and free ramen from 22:00 to 23:30. The is the best hotel in this area. The room range from small twin room to annex which is an individual house faces the Pacific Ocean.
