For a two-day layover, we decided to try this ryokan rather than one of the rather nondescript alternatives in Narita town. We had never stayed in a ryokan before (or, for that matter, been to Japan), but we wanted an adventure and we got it. First, the positives: it's very close to Narita-san temple, the beautiful park behind the temple... More

Quaint, charming, hospitable, genuine perfect experience! A wonderful Ryokan nestled in suburban Narita, a 3 minute walk from the temple. The host is a perfect gent as is all the staff. Great accommodations, very nice breakfast and a charming mini-museum of ancient Japanese authentic Samurai pieces. The young man explained that his great great grandfather was a Samurai and the...

We decided to book this place for 2 persons x 2 nights based on reviews on Tripadvisor. Positive Staying at an inn like this is a good way to understand how the locals stay when they travel. 90% of the occupants during our stay were locals – mostly people who worked in Narita. There were a few Japanese tourists who... More

Stayed for one night as I had an early flight the following morning and I didn't want to stay in some generic airport hotel. This is a charming ryokan in the lovely town of Narita. The Kirinoya is run by a very friendly family and the room was great - futon mattress on a bamboo matted floor. The facilities are... More

Booked a room for overnight connection flight, and the hotel is better than I expected. Clean room with good bamboo smell, delicious local food, hospitable hotel owner, and some good tour sights in the area. I took a walk in the morning, went to the Shinjo Temple for a short visit, and enjoyed the peace of the town. It's a... More

Stayed for 3 nights for sightseeing, a bit far from the station, but staff offer free pick up from the station. Love their family, great customer service. The food is not bad, nothing too special. The place is really clean.

On our way to Thailand we stayed in Narita City for one day/night. We stayed at Kirinoya Ryokan and really loved it. It was soooo Japanese. That was what I wanted and that was what I wanted my daughter to experience. The owners are a big extended family who pretty much include you. They're all just so friendly and warm.... More

This hotel is out of the centre of Narita. Standard of the rooms is little bit poor. But big advantage of this place is ryokan museum. Comparing these bad things with museum, it is worth to stay in this hotel. You can also book meals in hotel but it is nothing special.

Stayed one night while in transit to Cambodia. Lovely innkeeper who was quite responsive to email in the days prior to my arrival. Food was awesome. And just a short walk to a great temple. Really glad I didn't choose to stay at a boring box hotel. People might be put off by the age of the place but I... More

The sweetest, kindest people in the world... For instance, my American cell phone wouldn't work in Japan despite reassurances from AT&T that it would once I got on their International plan. :( Anyway, I needed to call my husband to let him know I had arrived safely. I went outside to try to phone. There was just a tiny sprinkling... More
