Gyokuhokan
Izu Peninsula

The Gyokuhoukan is an authentic, wood-panelled old ryokan located in Kawazu town on the Izu Peninsula. This spot is mose renowned for its early blooming cherry blossom in February, but it also works well as a stop for a night when driving around the peninsula. It has a variety of Japanese style rooms, some with private outdoor hot spring baths, and sliding screen dooors. Rather than having thin futon mattresses laid out on the tatami mat floors, the Gyokuhoukan has thick futons on a raised platform, which are easier to get up from and more comfortable to sleep on. Local fish catch and succulent seared beef feature courses feature in the multi-course kaiseki dinners included when staying here, and expect a very hearty breakfast with traditional ingredients.
