The service here is excellent. On arrival one of the (slightly built) staff carried our (very heavy) suitcases up the stairs to our room. As usual we were served tea and sweets, while arranging a time for our family time bath in their facilities downstairs, and co-ordinating this with dinner. Sizing for the yukata was checked in anticipation of our... More

Staying here gives a small taste of traditional ryokan life, and staff are more than happy to explain, demonstrate and discuss ryokan/onsen etiquette for those who are uninitiated. Flip flops and yukata are provided free of charge for all guests, and you can change into outside shoes (also provided) for when wandering around town from onsen to onsen. The three... More

Mikuniya is easily the best ryokan I've stayed at in Japan. The facilities are outstanding - very clean and modern, without losing the classic ryokan feel. The three on-site onsen are excellent - really you are spoiled for choice with the seven public onsen available in the town of Kinosaki, but the on-site facilities are first-rate too. The food was...

Our first experience in a traditional Japanese Ryokan. We were very pleased with our choice. Mikuniya staff are very welcoming they were waiting for us on our arrival. In the entrance you leave to leave your shoes and put on slippers which are laid out on the step. The owners speak really good English and were extremely helpful throughout our... More

This was our first real ryokan in Japan and we liked it very much. At the entrance you have to leave your shoes and put on slippers. The room is gigantic considering the standard size rooms in a Japanese hotel. There is a sitting room were you get some green tea and in the evening futons are laid out, and... More

It was love at first sight! Even at Mikuniya's entrance , the essence of Japanese traditional culture was attested :the espouse of simplicity and elegance. The receptionist was exuberant . The high-standard courtesy and cheerful attitude of the entire staff was unabated throughout our 3-day stay; they were every efficient as well. As we settled down and dinner was served,... More

Crabs of ALL KINDS were served-- Grilled, boiled, raw, minced, etc etc. The lady attending to me was very attentive and kind even though my japanese was very mediocre. I had dinner in my own... More

We arrived early, and they held our bags for us until check-in - it wasn't in another room but it was in plain view of the front desk. When we returned, they carried our (very heavy) suitcases up to the second floor and the nakai (a special kind of maid) served us tea (with very delicious sweets) and verified the... More
