Complete with a garden and a terrace, Minpaku Hiraizumi is situated in Hiraizumi, 2.4 km from Chuson-ji Temple and 6 km from Takkoku Seikou-ji Temple. Extremely friendly and helpful hosts: for those who like Japanese style onsen (hot springs) they drive you to and from one or the other spots in town, and even pay the fee on your behalf! They also take you to Chuson-ji as well as Hiraizumi World Heritage Information Center. With the former there is a steep uphill climb, so it's a blessing to take a leisurely walk down (it's still steep, however). Not only is the place close to the train station, but also to Motsu-ji and Kanjizai-oin, both of which are fantastic remains of the glories of the 12th-century Fujiwara clan. The breakfasts are plentiful and delicious. They are mom's homemade Japanese food. It's obvious that the hosts enjoy running the inn: they've welcomed visitors from 54 countries so far. Hiraizumi is one of the most historically mportant places in Japan to visit, and I can't wait to go back to the inn!
Set in Hiraizumi, 300 metres from Motsuji Temple and 2.3 km from Chuson-ji Temple, Minpaku Suzuki offers air-conditioned accommodation with a balcony and free WiFi. One of the nicest hosts I've ever met - wonderful hospitality, delicious breakfast and as friendly and courteous as could possible be (even for Japan!). I was only there for one night but could easily have stayed longer. I hope to make it back one day!
Set in Hiraizumi, 600 metres from Motsuji Temple, Musashibou offers accommodation with a bar, free private parking and a garden. Not much to recommend this place. The dinner was good, and the location is convenient for visiting the splendid temples and shrines in the vicinity, but nothing else is good about this place.
Offering modern rooms with free WiFi, a flat-screen TV and a private bathroom with a bathtub, Chisun Inn Iwate is 200 metres from Ichinoseki Interchange on the Tohoku Expressway. Large room. Very comfortable bed. Very clean. Good location for exploring the area.
Located a 10-minute taxi ride from JR Ichinoseki Train Station, Hotel Route-Inn Ichinoseki Inter offers modern rooms with carpeted floors and free wired internet. Including the breakfast into the price was a nice extra. The time period for breakfast also didn't end incredibly early like many hotels.
Hiraizumi is a fairly small town with a lot of rich culture. You can visit all the historical sites in the area within 2 days. Folks are friendly, and are always willing to assist foreigners visiting the area. In the evening, the area shuts down fairly early, and it can be difficult to find restaurants and bars, since most signs are written in Kanji, and there are only a few areas around. I would recommend this town to anyone that wants to have a cultural experience unlike any Western style. It’s amazing to think how old the area is, and it really takes you back and makes you think.
Hiraizumi was outstanding. A picturesque and peaceful place, teeming with history and culture. There are beautiful parks, gardens and rice fields. We hired bicycles at the train station and saw the main sights across one day and were very relaxed. Chuson ji complex is, in my opinion, more beautiful than many of the more popular sites in areas like Kyoto. The people were so friendly and welcoming. The public onsen is excellent and we were made to feel very welcome by the local clientele. I would make this a definite stop on any Japanese trip
A lovely town that is small enough to see everything in a day. The sites are beautifully maintained and signposted for English speakers; there is a very convenient loop-bus that takes you to all the main places.
