IWASO, MIYAJIMA

IWASO

RYOKAN-STYLE GUESTROOMS

Ever since it first opened its doors more than 150 years ago, Iwaso has offered visitors to Miyajima a taste of authentic Japanese hospitality.

Iwaso sits peacefully amidst the vibrant maple trees of Momijidani Park. The ryokan-style guestrooms match the tranquil surroundings with their simple decor, traditional latticework and antique windows looking out onto the lush greenery. The property’s hot spring baths are equally serene, partly open-air and with lovely forest views. As you soak in the healing mineral waters keep an eye out for the occasional passing deer.

Choose to stay at this charming guesthouse on your luxury, tailor-made holiday and you’ll find yourself within walking distance of the celebrated Itsukushima Shrine. There’s no shortage of beautiful nature walks to enjoy in the surrounding national park, but you can also while the hours away with a good book in the cosy tea lounge and library.
