Founded over 150 years ago, Ota Ryokan is a traditional Japanese inn known for its homely and calm atmosphere. It is located right next to the 25th Shinshoji Temple of the Shikoku Pilgrimage, with a view of Murotsu Port in front of it. They are most proud of their countryside cuisine made with fresh seafood of the day and seasonal vegetables. The gorgeous chirashizushi-style specialty, “Gonbei Sushi,” is famous locally for being named after Gonbei Ichiki, a benefactor who sponsored the excavation of Murotsu Port.
As with many ryokans the place is a bit old, but the food was great, and it was right on the water, so you could watch fishing boats come and go from the harbor. It's a stone's throw from one of the henro temples, pretty convenient. The lady running it tried explaining the types of sashimi I was given, they were awesome, good place to visit for a foodie.
