Fodor's Expert Review Naniwa Issui

63 Chidori-cho, Matsue, Shimane-ken, 690-0852, Japan

A swanky ryokan near the Matsue Shinji-ko Onsen Station (for easy access to the shrine of Izumo Taisha), Naniwa Issui is envied for its amazing views out over the big lake and for its hot spring. The seven mind-blowing deluxe rooms on the fourth floor have private tubs to soak in out on the balconies. Naniwa offers impeccable service and serves fabulous Matsue seafood. In season, the delightful lounge-side garden becomes a beer and cocktail patio.

PROS

  • beautiful views over Lake Shinju
  • private balcony tubs put you in the lap of luxury
  • the public bath is small for a hotel this size

CONS

  • 10-minute walk to bus stop
  • quite expensive for Matsue
  • noise from the road below carries up to rooms on lower floors
