A Seaside Ryokan Getaway in Wakayama


Relax to the sound of the waves at this seaside onsen resort


Make your Wakayama trip memorable with a stay at Ryokan Musashi. Perched on the water’s edge in the town of Shirahama in southern Wakayama Prefecture, Ryokan Musashi welcomes guests to an enchanting escape. Overnight visitors can choose from a variety of rooms, some featuring traditional futons and others sporting beds with a distinctive Japanese style. Some rooms even boast a private hot spring tub with ocean views. It’s worth a splurge to book a seaside room in the Nagitei building, where you can enjoy one of the most breathtaking sunsets in the country from your suite’s picture window. The ryokan is just a few steps away from the famed white sands of Shirahama Beach and the beautiful Engetsuto Islet with its photogenic rock formations.



Guests at Ryokan Musashi have the option to choose from two types of dinners: either a buffet of Japanese, Chinese, and Western dishes, or a multicourse kaiseki feast featuring local ingredients, including Wakayama-brand Kumano beef. You can also enjoy over 40 varieties of umeshu (plum wine). Children are well-catered to, with numerous kid-friendly buffet options.

With a multilingual staff speaking many different languages, Ryokan Musashi will make travelers of all nationalities feel at home.

Access: From Tokyo Haneda Airport, fly to Nanki-Shirahama Airport (about one hour), then take a bus or taxi to the hotel (about 10 minutes).
