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!
