Relax to the sound of the waves at this seaside accommodation in Wakayama

Make your Wakayama trip memorable with a stay at Ryokan Musashi, consistently rated as one of the top onsen ryokans in all of Japan. Perched on the water’s edge in the town of Shirahama in southern Wakayama Prefecture, Ryokan Musashi welcomes guests to their newly-renovated escape. Overnight visitors can choose from a variety of rooms, with 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 steps 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, choosing from 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.
