Yamatoya Honten is mid-way between a Ryokan and a hotel. We arrived rather late and about 8pm, and the manager was waiting for us in the driveway. He could see that were a bit flustered and also exhausted. His welcome and attention immediately relieved all our anxiety. Each day when we returned to our room in the late afternoon, we... More

We stayed one night at the hotel. The location of the hotel is just next to the historical Dogo Onsen. We took a walk along the dogo onsen area with a lot of souvenir shops around. We enjoyed the onsen within the hotel, particularly the outdoor ones during the cold winter time that was wonderful. We had the western twin-bed... More

We had a one night stay in this hotel. From the outside it does not look fancy, but the inside makes up for this. This is a typical Japanse style hotel. The reception and other staff are very friendly and correct. The hotel restaurant is also excellent with nice and exquisite food. The Dodo Onsen and shopping area are around... More

Very quiet and relaxing place for enjoy onsen and dogo onsen. My shoulder pain had gone with just a several times of bathing in onsen. There are small Noh theater also. Soaking Ashi-yu with beer and listening to the sounds bell, it was fantastic and make you feel real Japan. It's located very closet to Dogo Onsen Honkan and we... More

Located just behind the Dogo Onsen Honkan, Yamatoya Honkan is a typical sizable onsen hotel. After entering the door, you have to walk through a small garden for another door before you are entering the main lobby. It is a relatively big onsen hotel, a coffee shop on the right on lobby floor, and check in counter further down. There... More

This hotel is so cute! If you want a neat, clean, convenient, traditional hotel then this is perfect. The staff were very friendly and the rooms were neat and clean. This hotel is great value for money and a wonderful place for those who are looking for a traditional Japanese experience.
