Standing apart from Shimoda, Rendaiji, is a quieter, though still a large hot-spring town with some fascinating history. Part of that history is Seiryuso. From the moment you arrive, the opulence and beauty of this traditional Japanese inn captivate the mind. You will experience the fear of missing the many splendors with the sheer flicker of the eye. Be still and behold the magnificent beauty of Seiryuso, the first ryokan in Japan selected as a member of the elite Relais & Chateaux collection.
