Fodor's Expert Review Matsushima Ichinobo

1-4 Hama, Takagi , Matsu-shima, Miyagi-ken, 981-0215, Japan

This posh resort hotel has a gorgeous garden that stays illuminated at night. All the large, bright rooms overlook the bay, as do the delightfully relaxing tea room and the public hot spring baths on the top floor. The "concept" Western rooms by different designers are particularly popular. Affluent travelers may enjoy this splurge, but it's also a favorite among locals celebrating anniversaries. The Kyohei Fujita Museum of Glass, within the hotel complex, contains many opulent pieces by an artist inspired by the area.
