This had been on my radar for years, having stopped in to check it out in the past. The entrance/lobby area is wonderful and the staff members are also wonderful - I guess that is what sold me on it. I finally had a chance to stay there, so made the reservation. I have been in many high end and low end ryokans. In low end things are tattered and food isn't memorable or even very good, but they charge $75-150 per person per night, so I don't expect more. High end ($250-500 per person/night) generally are much nicer with better rooms (with new, nice smelling tatami), nicer baths, and superior food. The price here was about $500-600 before extras for a night for 2 people and I expected much better food. It wasn't bad, but just wasn't special. The room was somewhat tattered and small. The tatami mats must have been old, since there was no nice smell. We had just come from a different ryokan that cost the same and had nicer facilities, a room twice the size and incredible food, so I expected more here. It is older (I think they said 150 years old), but that should be no excuse. The service was very nice and the staff was caring and friendly. I really enjoyed all of the staff members with whom I had any contact. I just expected a nicer room and better food for the price.

The traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast were one of the best experiences at Iwaso. The baths were spacious, but I wish the outdoor bath was a bit more open to the night sky.

Wonderful stay. When we arrived on the ferry there was a shuttle bus waiting to drive us up the mountain road. The ryokan is in a beautiful, peaceful wooded setting. The walk to the floating torii is a pleasant, easy 5 minute walk. The staff from arrival to departure was wonderful and we enjoyed the small tea ceremony in our room when it was ready. We did not eat dinner at the hotel since we do not eat seafood. Most restaurants close early on the island so if you skip the dinner offering, be sure to bring something (we had bento boxes) or eat early. We did eat the western breakfast and enjoyed the offering and variety, the fruit and orange juice were wonderful. We enjoyed the tatami room. I found the tatami mats very hard to sleep on but my daughter was comfortable. Nice shower room facilities and toiletries in the room. We would definitely stay here again.
