I booked a night here through booking.com, and stayed in a western style room. The room was basic and not very modern, but clean and comfortable. As with most Japanese hotels, the room was small compared to western standards. The staff was quite helpful, and went out of their way to be kind, even receiving a package for me while... More

Booked a stay here on japanican.com and was very impressed with the staff who really did their best to make our stay in Kagoshima a pleasant one. Our rate included two meals per day, both of which were delicious. I booked a semi-Western room with an ensuite bathroom... There was a drawing room with the necessities for tea service, the... More

We stayed in a Japanese style room which was large and clean. The onsen was fine but nothing special. The breakfast was delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is opposite the main shopping area of the town and the choice for restaurants is vast. Try the local speciality of black pig. The only thing that bothered... More

We stayed two nights at Nakahara Besso in a japanese style room, which was rather small but convenient. The hotel is very well located, 2 minutes from the shopping and dining areas, 15 minutes walk to the harbour and close to bus and streetcar facilities. We particularly enjoyed the extremely friendly and helpful staff and we had an excellent japanese... More

Stayed here August 7-9, 2010 with my husband and our three children ages 18, 14 and 10. Kagoshima is our ancestral "hometown" and the Nakahara Besso served as the base camp for our homecoming. This welcoming hotel with its gracious staff did not disappoint in any way. The Japanese-style rooms are spotlessly clean and the staff sets out your bedding... More

This one is recommended in the 2009 edition of the Michelin Green guide. We stayed in a Japanese style room (tatamis & futons). Minor problems are that there is no Internet access in the rooms the only possibility is with your laptop to use the Lan cable of their single internet station in the lobby, which worked in practice, also...

I stayed a total of three nights, before and after my visit to the Island of Yakushima. This hotel is a seven story, major size hotel, but is a family operation. The Japanese style rooms were unusually spacious and the dining service was first rate. Out of my travels in Japan and United States, the Nakahara ( the family name... More
