Review of Ryokan Bentenkaku (Naruko, Miyagi)


I was here to photograph the kokeshi festival, so it was a business trip of sorts. Above and beyond incredible hospitality. The owners are so nice and helped me get acquainted with the locals. I can’t recommend this place enough, they really know the true meaning of countryside hospitality. One of the owners can speak English as well.

There is a private onsen bath here for couples or shy foreigners who do not want to get naked in front of strangers. The food is gorgeous as well. The onsen water is fantastic. If you are in any way stressed out, or want a break from the Tokyo pace, come here, eat good food, and unwind in some beautiful scenery.
