Kagaya Bettei Matsunomidori

What does Kagaya Bettei Matsunomidori look like?

This is like a traditional crafts museum.  If you are looking for luxury modern ryokans in Kanazawa, you should stay at Kagaya Bettei Matsunomidori.  Actually, the property has a small museum in-house.  If you are keen on Japanese culture, it’s well worth a visit.   It’s like you’re in another world.  We were so excited to explore in-house.  Perhaps if this is your first time staying at ryokans, this is one of the best choices.  Facilities are sophisticated.  You wouldn’t feel any stress during your stay.  Once we arrived at the property, an elegant staff welcomed us with warmth and we were escorted to a beautiful tatami room with a peaceful ocean view.  The ambiance is serene, stylish, and modern. Kagaya Bettei Matsunomidori would be great for couples, families, small groups, business persons, or solo travelers.  *A minimum age requirement of 13 applies.  There are 31 rooms only.  We hardly met other guests during our stay.  Absolutely this property would be perfect for adults.  Check Availability and Pricing for the ryokan on Booking.com or Agoda

Where is the best accommodation for anniversary?

If you are looking for venues for special occasions, I would recommend it.  This is absolutely luxury onsen resort for adults.  The staff arranges flowers and cakes to celebrate an anniversary at additional charges if you request in advance.

Is the location easy to access?

Yes, it would be easy from Wakuraonsen Station.  A free shuttle service is available from the station.  You need to book it in advance.  Alternatively, it takes 25min on foot.  It takes around 90min by express train from Kanazawa Station to Wakuraonsen Station.

How about rooms?

The room tends to be spacious, functional, and user-friendly.  All electric appliances are the latest.  The housekeeping was excellent.   All rooms have twin beds.  if you are a hot spring freak, you should book a special room with an outdoor private hot spring with ocean views.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, samue outfits, a coffee machine with capsules, Japanese sweets, snacks, a complimentary minibar including beer and Japanese sake, and green tea set, etc.  There are POLA amenities in the bathroom.  The free WiFi reception was great in the property.  A DVD and CD player, and air clear, and a massager were placed in our room.  Then complimentary wine, Japanese sake, beer, champagne, and sweets are available at the lobby lounge while viewing a beautiful ocean.  Also complimentary ice cream, yogurt, beer, milk, and orange juice, etc., are available near the communal baths from 5:00 to 11:00, 15:00 to 20:00. 

How about In-house Facilities?

There are wonderful indoor and outdoor communal hot springs with ocean views.  All of them are open from 5:00 to 11:00, 15:00 to 25:00.  Also, you can use communal hot springs in the sister inns, Kagaya, and Aenokaze nearby.  It takes just 5min on foot.  *If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the communal bathing areas.  You may want to book a room with a private outdoor hot spring.   Then Kagaya Bettei Matsunomidori is a perfect universal design.   Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  Each room has twin beds.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift. 

How about activities in the property?

The staff served thick powdered green tea for us at the tea house.  It’s open between 15:00 and 18:00.  It’s complimentary.  Don’t forget to visit the tea house.  Then, you can join a Japanese drum performance for free at the sister inn, Kagaya from 20:15.  Also, you should join a complimentary art tour at Kagaya which has a lot of priceless art treasures. 

How about meals?

Kaga kaiseki food experience was just divine.  All local ingredients were so fresh, high-end, and testy.  All drinks including beer, Japanese sake, wine, and non-alcoholic drinks, etc., are complimentary in the dining area.  Dinner starts from 17:30 to 21:00.  You need to check-in by 18:00 if you have dinner in-house.  Breakfast starts from 7:00 to 9:00.  The portion tends to be average.  All meals are served in a dining area.  The tables in the dining room are separated by walls that provide a decent level of privacy.  Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  After dinner, don’t forget to visit the bar.  Complimentary beverages with finger food, such as wine, beer, cocktail, brandy, whiskey, sour, and liqueur, etc are available.  Also, Udon noodle was served as a night snack at the bar.  It’s open from 20:00-24:00.  It couldn’t be better.  Absolutely, if you are a drinker, Kagaya Bettei Matsunomidori would be a paradise. 

My impressions

Overall, the price range would be reasonable if you are a happy drinker.   All staff tends to be sophisticated.  I’m sure that you can experience signature Japanese hospitality during your stay.  At last, don’t forget to take a walk in the garden.  You can see amazing views with a blue ocean in good weather.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Kagaya Bettei Matsunomidori from the below space.   If you check-in after 18:00, you need to inform the staff in advance.   Check Availability and Pricing for the ryokan on Booking.com or Agoda
