What is this?

We select, you rate. Scores are on a 20-point scale, and they're assigned by our members who actually stayed there. If a hotel's rating falls below 16, it's gone — so your post-stay review is actually our most important quality-control tool. Thanks for that.

It’s almost impossible to overstate how central the onsen bath is to the ryokan experience, a point which is underlined rather forcefully by a stay at The Earth, a sixteen-suite inn on the Pacific coast near Toba City, within the Ise Shima national park. It’s aptly named, as the immersion in the natural environment is near-total — surroundings include primeval forest, Toba Bay, and the islands in the middle distance. All suites share the two sex-segregated hot spring baths, de rigueur for any onsen worth the name, but the Earth goes one further, with a private open-air spring-fed bath attached to every suite. Views vary — not every single one takes in a commanding view of the distant ocean — but they’re all well worth the price of admission.

The Earth’s common spaces are laid out and furnished in the traditional, floor-level tatami style, but the bedrooms are hotel-style for maximum comfort. The cuisine is traditional as well, a multi-course kaiseki presentation, drawing on ingredients from the land and sea in and around the national park. It may not encompass the whole of the planet, but The Earth puts you firmly in touch with this little corner of it.

Please note: Oyado The Earth does not accept children under the age of 12 years old.
