It was a friendly place with great front desk staff. The public bath was clean & relaxing. The location was perfect; only a 5-10 min walk to both the JR and Kintetsu stations and Nara Park. The only down-sides for us were that the futons were very small and not soft, so it seemed like you were sleeping directly on... More

This small traditional Japanese hotel is located in the middle of the quaint shopping district, with restaurants all over. Thus there were no meals served. I had the "inner" room, which was a huge room in the back. I did not get the futon experience, since there were two twin beds in my room, but I had a couch, table,... More

The ryokan is only a short walk from the station and all the temples. The room was big enough for the 4 of us and very quiet. The public bath is little but then it was only my daughter and I using it. Sadly there's no breakfast at the ryokan but a good cafe down the road from it. Good... More

The Japanese-style hotel is located conveniently between JR Nara and Kintetsu Nara stations on Sanjo-Dori, where you find shops, restaurants and Nara's main attractions within easy walking distance. The lodging itself is a typical low-end Japanese ryokan, where guests sleep on futons lay out on the tatami floor. The futons were clean and comfortable, and we had good night sleeps.... More

Just right on Sanjo Dori, the location, cleanliness, and overall "ryokan" experience was fantastic. The owner is super friendly and does everything he can to make you feel comfortable. It's a little bit of a walk from Nara station (JR connection), but it's the halfway point between Nara station and the national park. Which is pretty fantastic if you're backpacking... More

I enjoyed the experience very much, but i don't think this place is suitable for everyone. Good points: 1) excellent location close to the attractions 2) helpful staff who understands basic English 3) Close to interesting shops and restaurants; Points to note: 1) shared toilet (my room at least) 2) public Japanese bath (which i enjoyed, not for everyone!)
