Shikitei Hotel

137 Yunotate, Morioka, Iwate-ken, 020-0055, Japan

A half-hour bus ride from JR Morioka Station takes you to this quiet hot spring town and upscale, traditional ryokan, which serves two meals a day in your tatami room. High walls around the premises prevent you from seeing picturesque mountain views, but rooms peer out on a Japanese garden where goldfish swim in a pond. You can connect to the hotel's speedy Wi-Fi Internet service for free. From JR Morioka Station, take the Iwate Kotsu bus bound for Tsunagi Onsen (30 minutes; ¥620).
