We had a very nice and spacious room with a small indoor terrace and fantastic views to the temple just across the road - the futons on the tatami fllor are very comfortable - the breakfast and dinner were both days very delicious and served in the room - we found nicer onsen in other ryokans and the entrance hall...

stayed there in order to catch an early flight and it was a perfect end to our trip. Awesome location, make sure you visit the Narita temple - we did so at night and it was eerily beautiful. Make sure you eat at the ryokan, their special is grilled eel and it's outstanding. Staff was very helpful and has a... More

We stayed there only because of an early flight from Narita. It is a traditional Japanese hotel. It sits right opposite the temple. We had wonderful views onto the temple. They have a free shuttle bus from Narita station. It is only 15 minutes walk but can be a bit much with baggage. Very friendly and helpful staff. And the... More

It's 10-min walk from the train (Narita Station). We really can't find the hotel right away because it's late at night, good thing Japanese people are really so nice, 2 girls we bumped into helped us the way. One waiter in a restaurant, assisted us to the hotel. We arrived late in the hotel, around 12 midnight and we were... More

My husband and I stayed at Wakamatsu Honten before flying out through Narita the next day. The public areas of the hotel are pretty dated and worn, but the room itself was very nice, with furniture and tatami mats in good shape. Be aware that the rooms have private toilets, but no private baths or showers. The experience of the... More

Wakamatsu Honten is a great place to stay when travelling via Narita International Airport. One stop of the train (10 minutes) from the terminal, and you are in a very interesting town of Narita, with narrow streets full of shops and restaurants and a huge temple complex with amazing views. The hotel offers a really Japanese experience with tatami mats... More

If you want to experience real traditional Japanese stay....this is it. Look no further. Tatami room with Futon and buckwheat pillows. Big Japanese style bath and yukata ( kimono)..staff are extremely helpful and polite. Breakfast was great. Beautiful presentation and delicious. Everything was perfect! Thank you everyone at the ryokan. I will be back next year!!!

We stayed at this marvelous ryokan after arriving rather late in the evening at Narita Airport, and it provided a relaxing, hospitable welcome back to Japan. Located directly across the street from the magnificent Naritasan Temple, we awoke early to attend the amazing Gomi Fire Ceremony at Naritasan while still dark outside, and greeted the sunset at the temple and...

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
