Komatsu-kan Kofu-tei

Top choice ryokan in Matsushima
Image by

This classy seaside ryokan has inimitable, understated Japanese style. Elegant rooms are furnished sparingly with high-quality art and homewares. The outdoor onsen is pleasant, though small, but the bookable private outdoor bath with bay views is a treat. The kaiseki meals are as good as anything you'll find on your travels.
