A wonderful ryokan. The rooms were really nice and beautiful. 2 futon beds easily fit in there and were quite comfortable. We were served a welcome tea when we arrived and there was more tea on the table (2 kinds) for us to brew ourselves. The onsen was delightful and open almost 24h a day (with a brief cleaning break...

The ryokan is very beautiful, extremely clean and serves excellent dishes. We stayed there in late November so autumn was amazing. The staff spoke very minimal English but they were very helpful and kind.

Greeted on arrival, taken on tour of facilities. Staff spoke English and always very helpful. Room spacious and clean with sitting area overlooking small garden. If on set menu, dinner served in room, breakfast in dining room - plenty of food, of good quality. Futons probably the most comfortable of trip with two types of pillows, for those who don't...

Nanten-en is a historic inn in a scenic rural valley, traditional Japanese tatami mat ryokan style accomodation. The graceful owner lived in Edinburgh and speaks excellent English. The inn is surrounded by beautiful gardens, there is a comfortable lounge, a good HOT ofuro springwater bath and there are some nice nearby walks. Nanten-en is just 100 meters from Amami station...

I would strongly recommend this for those who want to see some countryside, experience a traditional japanese ryokan and onsen all in one go. Getting here is easy - you take the train an hour or so out of the city... and the guest house is located just 50 metres or so from the train station, so very easy to... More

Good is the food and the Onsen. The staff is great and the room are really Japanese. The sofas in the sitting room are old and tatty. The garden is small. The main complaint is the noise, from the railway is ok and disappears overnight when you are left with the road noise, always there and particularly bad early morning.

Finally we found it on our thrid try using google map. Ryokan is very close to the airport and the rinku outlet mall. Wifi- only available at the lobby Dining- dinner was good. They... More

The ryokan was lovely, just as I pictured it. The gardens were very serene even in the rain and I liked all the little paths. The room was large, with tatami mats on the floor. Interesting ceilings with wooden poles and there was a lovely view of the garden. The dinner meal was spectacular with 10 courses of Japanese exquisitely... More

Our stay at Nantenen was definitely one of the big highlights of the trip. I was concerned at first about it being too remote, but as it turned out the location was perfect. This type of place wouldn't be possible inside of Osaka. The grounds and surrounding gardens were out of a movie. I loved waking up early and walking... More
