We loved our one night in an ensuite Japanese-style room. Compared with our previous ryokan, it didn’t have a private hot spring bath and was smaller and simpler; however that was compensated for by a more Japanese experience. Meals were served in our room on a low table, with us sat on legless chairs with our legs poked under the... More

Stayed here for two nights with 3 kids and we were pampered from start to finish.

Located on the quiet side of Nara Park, this ryokan is... More

Excellent service...staff was outstanding. Great soaking tub in room. Wonderful location on the edge of Nara Park...on the side opposite from the center of city. Easy walks to the sites within Nara Park. Great cherry blossom viewing.

Beautiful ryokan situated right in Nara park. Beautiful fall colors and deer right outside. Very accommodating. Great experience, even with young children. Meals were so creative and the children's meal was perfect. We got a room with an outdoor bath - wonderful!
