Super Hotel Yamagata Tsuruoka is offering accommodation in Tsuruoka. The property is non-smoking and is set 12 km from Kamo Aquarium. All units in the hotel are equipped with a flat-screen TV. The hotel's bath was lovely and clean, but it was very small. I was lucky and didn't have to share it with other guests. For ladies, there is a security code for the door, which the front desk staff will give you. The free breakfast was good. They had freshly baked bread and it was lovely. The chocolate croissants were delicious, but ran out fast! I wasn't able to try all the different foods at breakfast, but it was nice and seemed to be replenished often. There were a few teas on offer as well as coffee and drink dispensers. The location was good. There is a convenience store next to the hotel and across the train tracks is another hotel with restaurants and a small shopping mall. It also took about 10 minutes to walk to the train station from the Super Hotel. The TV was huge and the Video on Demand system worked well. They had a few new movies I hadn't seen, along with many old classics. Unusually, there was a table/desk built into the middle of the room. It had a bench with it which was good for seating. The bed was comfortable and there was a choice of pillows available in the lobby. I liked that there were two USB ports and an electrical outlet in the headboard. I also liked the keyless door lock. It was recommended that we take a photo of the code and carry that with us. We did, so it was easy to enter our room and we didn't have to drop off a key at the desk.
Featuring a fitness centre and bar, as well as a restaurant, Shonai Hotel Suiden Terrasse is set in Tsuruoka. There is basically nothing to dislike about this place. It's absolutely awesome, in everything from the comfort and size of the rooms to the architecture. The bathroom was amazing, the wi-fi worked great and the bed was super comfortable. There is a restaurant in the same building (make sure to reserve a table though!) as well as an onsen, and there was even a small market with handmade goods on the day we checked out. It might seem a tad more expensive than a room elsewhere, but if you're sick of the standard Japanese business hotel and want something much better, this is what you're looking for!
Situated in Tsuruoka, Yamagata region, Hotel Sun Resort Shonai is located 16 km from Atsumi Onsen. The 3-star hotel has air-conditioned rooms with a private bathroom and free WiFi. Our western style room was big and it looked like it was recently renovated. Everything looked so new and modern. The bathroom was just fantastic. There was also a massage chair in the room. Both dinner and breakfast were very delicious. We were able to watch a beautiful sunset at the beach right in front of the hotel.

Went there to visit the Dewa Sanzan, it was a wonderful trip, better than I could have imagined! Stayed in an Onsen Ryokan in Atsumi Onsen a short trip away from Tsuruoka. So was eating at the Ryokan.
I wanted to go to churenji/dainichibo/honmyoji but transport was crap for New Year’s Eve. I understand this but nowhere on the sites or information did it say the schedule had changed. I ended up going to nangakuji with a nice but half interested obachan who didn’t really sell me the banal setting of the temple. The living Buddha was cool but no pictures could be taken and the whole experience which was probably less than 5 minutes left me wanting. There were no buses or taxis back so I had to walk 40 minutes back to the station(in the snow). It sucked. So This place has potential but it’s really gotta work on transport for tourists in 2020. Though the lady at the tourist information office was super nice, helpful and cool.

In Tsuruoka town, see Tsuruoka Park In the Shonai seaside area, Kamo Aquarium, the nearby town of Atsumi Onsen, and Mt. Haguro are some top destinations. Climb Mt. Haguro by steps. See the 5 layer pagoda at the bottom of the climb and the temples temple/shrine
Tsuruoka is great if travelling to see Haguro-San. Just catch one of the red buses from outside of the station into the town outside of the gateway to the mountain. it takes roughly 30 minutes and costs around 820 yen on the bus. Tsuruoka also had a really convenient supermarket a short walk up the street and to the right (called Mise en Ono I think?) if needing supplies and are travelling up into the mountains.
Tsuruoka City is pretty much dead around the train station, so the only reason to visit would be hiking or visiting the Dewa Sanzan. The stone path up Mt. Haguro is very scenic and peaceful. Plus, you can walk in the footsteps of the famous haiku poet, Matsuo Basho. The hike up Mt. Haguro is not too challenging, but you can always take your time since the stairs can be a little steep in parts (and slippery if it's recently rained). If you like nature or the mystic feeling of "Old Japan," then you'll love being surrounded by ancient towering cedar trees while you trek up weathered stone steps, worn down by thousands of feet over the ages. Relatively frequent buses make visiting Haguro-san easy, but buses are far less frequent to Yudono-san, and there are no buses to Mt. Gassan in the off-season.
