Taikanso Senaminoyu is a beachfront hotel in Senami Onsen, Murakami in Niigata Prefecture.

Their rooms feature traditional Japanese styles, with tatami mat floors and wooden accents to warm up the interiors. Guests will have a view of the Sea of Japan as they soak in the relaxing waters of the hot spring, either from the privacy of their own rooms or in the large open-air bath that’s situated right on the beach. One night’s stay will range from 16,000 to 45,000 JPY.

Asian breakfast options are served in the mornings, and the daily menus for all meals will feature Niigata beef and seafood–both specialties from the area.

Taikanso Senaminoyu can be accessed from Tokyo Station to Niigata Station and then to Murakami Station. A shuttle service is offered to pick up guests at Murakami Station. The hotel is operating normally with safety measures in place to prevent the spread of infection.

Japanese ryokan food, dinner and breakfast – a ryokan providing local foodstuff

Local Niigata seafood. Famous local Niigata beef.

A ryokan particularly good for health and beauty

This hot spring infused with the fragrance of the lake was discovered when incredibly hot water burst forth in this spot during oil drilling. The view from the open air bath facing the Sea of Japan is spectacular. The water is good for neuralgia, muscle pain, joint pain, etc.

Great hotel and wonderful view from oceanfront room
The hotel stands oceanfront and great ocean view from room. Our room has balcony with private hot spa. The kaiseki style dinner and the buffet style breakfast was also great. The stuff is very friendly. I highly recommended this hotel for couple, family.

Waterfront room and great meal!
Our room faced the ocean, and had a private hot-tub on the balcony. We were served tea immediately upon entering our room, followed by a great private dinner in the evening. Futons on tatami were very comfortable. I realize it's rural Japan, and probably few foreign tourists such as myself, but I thought this hotel was excellent value! A large, clean Japanese style room, facing the ocean!, with a great kaiseki dinner in a private room with our travelling guests, for not that high of a charge. Staff were friendly and helpful (our friend was able to converse in Japanese). If you're in this area than I highly recommend this hotel!

You will never believe what they can provide you for a dinner
I stayed in this Ryokan style hotel during April 2016. I have a very good room which has a sea view. When you walk down to the beach side you will see the place where you can put your feet in the hot water pond to sooth your heal. At the same time this hot water pond has a good view to the sea with some garden nearby. When you go to the room you will have you own onsen. But the most highlight is what you will have for a perfect dinner which is full course very high quality foods. I bet it will be rarely to find in any Ryokan style hotel. This hotel located in the famouse sea salmon fishery. You will always get a very fresh sashimi and sea urchin.

Room With a View
Stayed here during Murakami Triathlon, the hotel let us keep our bikes in our rooms and were in tune with what was going on with the triathlon. All the rooms seem to face the ocean and have great views, we had a room with a bath on the balcony and it was lovely to sit in that and watch the sunset. The public onsen was fantastic too, we all went there post race to relax and get cleaned up. This hotel is good value for money as the room rate includes breakfast and dinner and we have stayed here the last two years for the triathlon and will most certainly stay here again in 2014.

Great view, helpful staff
A group of us stayed at Taikanso for the Murakami Triathlon in September. The hotel picked us up from Murakami Station, free of charge. This location was very convenient to the start of the triathlon, but the staff also knew what the triathletes needed and was very relaxed about us unpacking the bikes in their lobby while we waited for our rooms to be ready. They also prepared a private room for dinner for our group and was very accommodating to all our needs. My husband and I had a room with the private bath outside, which was very nice. I will be back again and recommend this hotel to others!
