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

I stayed in wakamatsu honten for 3 nights in the winter season. As previous reviews have said it is a bit worn inside and could use a bit of a revamp but my room was big enough with a wonderful view over looking narita San. The entry way and lifts stinks of smoke though. The staff are very helpful and... More

My husband had talked for many years about wanting to experience a stay at a traditional Honten, and this one specifically. We were lucky enough to get 3 days on the last few days of the year although not New Year's Eve. Two days would have been fine, a bit easier on our bodies. It was quite an experience and... More

Great place, staff friendly. Traditional Japanese. Other people has said it was slightly worn inside which I would agree with but it was clean and comfortable ans not a problem for me. The communal baths are a reasonable size and nicely hot. washing your hair perched on a stool is a bit of a faff but not impossible. The room... More

We stayed here earlier this month and will go again. We like the location and the wonderful service. The ofuru is very nice too. Not an onsen-type experience, but as close as it gets. It's also walkable from the station, but a little far for most people. Maybe a little worn on the edges, the wonderful attention to guests and... More
