Stayed here for two wonderful nights in September 2018. Keita san, the okami san (proprietress),and the rest of the Wakaba staff, truly reflect the Japanese hospitality spirit in seeing to meet and exceed the guests' needs from the heart. From the moment I was picked up at the train station, to the morning I was dropped off, it was one of my top ryokan experiences. Rather than reiterating all the other reviewers' positive comments regarding the ryokan with my own, I'd like to offer a few comments which would hopefully help visitors enjoy this town. All Western guidebooks mentioned Tsuruoka and staying at Tsuruoka or Haguro-machi to visit Dewa Sanzan and suggest doing Sakata as a day trip. I would suggest the opposite, basing yourself in Sakata and doing Dewa Sanzan as a day trip. Unless you have your own car, bus services to Gas-san is only on weekends and national holiays in July and August, and there are no bus services to Yudono-san at all. Bus services to Hagura-san is about hourly all year. Sakata offers many attractions, all within walking distances, and free bicycles are available to bike to the outlying attractions (e.g. Domon Ken Photography Museum and the Sakata City Museum of Art are only 10 minutes by bike). To appreciate Yamagata-ken and Sakata's culture and history, would highly recommend watching NHK's Oshin TV drama series (1983-1984, 120 15-minutes episodes) or the 2013 movie. Both are available online. The Tohoku region, and Yamagata in particular, experienced extreme hardship, poverty, and famine circa the 1890-1920. It is a great story about the human spirit in perseverance and overcoming adversities and obstacles. It will make your visits to the Sankyu Storehouses, the Abumiya Residence, and the Honma residence, all that much more meaningful and enjoyable. Finally, if you enjoy seafood and sashimi, Sakata Kaisen Ichiba (Sakata Fish Market) offers great choices at very reasonable prices.

Upon checking in, our room was more than a bit on the small side. We went to the front desk to see what options we had and fortunately there was a room a bit more than double the size for a small premium, a great deal. Room 916 had two double beds, a sitting area, a large work desk and bathroom and three windows – two facing Shinyama, the local version of Fujisan, and the end wall’s window facing Sakata Port. The windows did not open much, but with three of them it was enough for some good fresh air. The beds were very firm and the duvet was just the right weight to sleep in a cool room. Breakfast was excellent, with a wide choice and a bright and cheery room. The staff were excellent throughout, friendly and professional. The hotel is a short walk from the very interesting rice museum and a walkable distance from most of the area restaurants. I will return here on my next visit.

Stayed here for 2 nights in May 2019, during Golden Week. It was pretty packed! Not many reviews were available when I decided to book this hotel but judging by photos and being new thought to check it out. We wanted to stay in this area as a base to explore Dewa Sanzan. It was beautifully designed, lots of timber, floor to ceiling glass letting natural light in. Our room was small, we had a double room. But given the ample storage space in the room, once we had put everything away actually had heaps of space to use. It was nice to just stay in our room and relax, which sometimes we don’t like doing in similar sized japanese business hotel rooms. We tried the restaurant for dinner one night, and breakfast included both mornings. There weren’t many options for dinner, so maybe not ideal for some people. We were happy with our spag bol and curry. Nice local beer too. Breakfast was buffet style, good variety and delicious. Tried the onsen one night, but it was quite packed, with lots of kids. Didn’t find it relaxing and preferred to shower in my room the following night. Because it was so busy as well the onsen was quite dirty. Hair blocking the drains, dirty floors in the change room. It’s not very big. It would probably be a different story though if it wasn’t so busy in the hotel. I’m pretty sure it was booked out when I was there. My husband went to the gym twice and enjoyed the equipment there. They had some great Technogym machines there. Overall we enjoyed our stay and it was something different in Japan to break up our stays in business hotels in the city and traditional ryokans in the country.

My first stay. All ok on arrival and room small but very clean. Breakfast included and typical of Japanese business hotels so not quite aligned with non-Japanese tastes. Overall a clean and good hotel.
