    The highlight of Suiho Ogura Ryokan is undoubtedly their onsen baths, which are well-known for their remarkable blue colour. With natural kobald spring waters, your skin will feel beautiful and your soul renewed after your soak. The ryokan boasts seven baths in total, which are available for the use of both overnight and day guests. You can rent out the baths for private use, which is great for people who are uncomfortable taking part in nude bathing in front of strangers.

    The cuisine at Suiho Ogura Ryokan is another draw. The local chef who runs the establishment learned his craft in Italy and, although his food is indisputably Japanese, there is also a vibrancy that is somehow Italian. The ryokan serves kaiseki fare, a type of multi-course Japanese meal that aims to balance taste, texture, appearance, and colors of food. Like Italian cooking, kaiseki emphasises freshness and quality of ingredients over unnecessarily fussy and complicated recipes, so a culinary synthesis can definitely be tasted. In keeping with the kaiseki philosophy, the chef at Suiho Ogura Ryokan prepares his meals using local organic produce, much of it sourced from family-run farms in the Kunisaki Peninsula. Style and taste of Suiho Ogura’s food are notwithstanding, if you need a break from Japanese food an alternative is easily at hand. Just head to the Italian restaurant next door - it’s run by the ryokan manager’s father and is as highly rated as Suiho Ogura.

    Something that sets Suiho Ogura Ryokan apart from its peers is the flexibility of its staying practices. As ryokan are often some of the only places where you can enjoy a private onsen bath, many international tourists have expressed disappointment that they are often only open to guests staying the night. Unusually, Suiho Ogura Ryokan offers a great flexibility of plans. You can either have the full ryokan experience of onsen, kaiseki, and sleeping on a soft futon on tatami mats, or book out a room and a bath for five hours during the day for a daytime retreat and leave with or without having dinner. Suiho Ogura is a rare ryokan that has a truly flexible offering without compromising on authenticity.
