Fodor's Expert Review Matsushima Century Hotel

8 Senzui, Matsushima-aza, Matsu-shima, Miyagi-ken, 981-0213, Japan

This old-fashioned hotel sits on the island-studded bay near tourist attractions such as Zuigan-ji. The communal, open-air onsen has perhaps the best view of all if you do not mind the tour buses parking in front. Many rooms are lavish, especially the Japanese ones; some even have sea-view balconies.

PROS

  • great views abound
  • free pickup from station
  • a variety of rooms to choose from

CONS

  • busy and noisy tourist area
  • ocean views in Japanese-style rooms only
  • ocean views in Japanese-style rooms or suites only
  • can attract large groups due to its size
