We stayed at this hotel as an optional extra after our main escorted tour holiday around Japan. We truly did not know what to expect of a Ryokan, our tour guide had explained the basics of public bathing, etiquette of no shoes in the room and how we would be sleeping on mats on the floor etc. and I must...

Overall, I had a wonderful time staying at the Wakamatsu Honten. Very traditional and rich in Japanese culture, I enjoyed sleeping on their mats (although my hips and back didn't) and the public bathhouse. We purchased their in-house dinner and breakfast package which turned out to be nothing more than pure indulgence and simply amazing. They serve it to you... More

Very lovely hotel to stay in the charming village of Narita. Although the hotel is a bit old and partly worn out the rooms are very clean and the staff is polite and helpful. It was a great experience to stay in a traditional place for my last night in Japan. The rooms are spacious and upon arrival you are... More

We stayed here for a night for a layover at Narita, arriving just in time for dinner, which was great. They were able to accommodate vegetarian diners on short request. The room was small and a bit dated (it still had a rotary phone), but it was really comfortable and had a great view overlooking the temple. The futon and... More

The proximity to Narita Airport of this beautiful, traditional ryokan makes it an ideal place to stay. Our (standard) room looked out onto the temple complex, across a narrow road lined (a little higher up) by a fantastic variety of food places. The in-house Japanese dining is excellent, the service friendly and homely. Loved the in-house Japanese public bath.

Wakamatsu Honten Just had a terrible expirience at the Wakamatsu Honten. We were harrased by an old guy who could not speak English whilst we slept to pay a $12 mini bar bill. He had got it into his head that we were leaving the hotel at 4 am despite the fact that staff had been shown our travel docs... More

The only thing id change is the budget florescent lighting in the room that permeates all of affordable Japan:) I lived in Japan briefly, almost 20 years ago, so I kind of knew what to expect. Wakamatsu honten exceeded my expectations. If you are a japanophile, and are simply passing through on a 18 hr. layover, as I was, this... More

A traditional old style town across the road from a magnificent temple. Our room was less than ¥15000 for one night with both incredibly wonderful dinner and breakfast INCLUDED. The staff were love, flexible

My tween daughter and I stayed here on our last night in Japan, since it was so close to Narita airport. It was an unexpected treat! We stayed at fancier ryokans during our two week trip. But this ryokan was old-fashioned, the food was excellent, and the staff was warm and kind. The temple complex across the street was AMAZING... More

My husband and I stayed in Narita the night before flying home from Japan. We found this ryokan using TripAdvisor, and I'm so glad we did. Although the staff does not speak a lot of English, they are extremely friendly and work hard to communicate. As soon as we arrived (about an 8-9 yen cab ride from the Narita JR... More
