Fodor's Expert Review Shikitei Hotel

137 Yunotate, Morioka, Iwate-ken, 020-0055, Japan

A half-hour bus ride from JR Morioka Station takes you to this quiet hot-spring town and upscale, traditional ryokan, which serves two meals a day in your tatami room. High walls around the premises prevent you from seeing picturesque mountain views, but rooms peer out on a Japanese garden where goldfish swm in a pond. You can connect to the hotel's speedy Wi-Fi for free.
