This was our first trip to Japan. We were originally having trouble on-line finding accommodation for a family of four in Osaka. We went to Flight Centre and they found Kaneyoshi Ryokan. We needed two nights accommmodation in Osaka for our initial stay before heading to Mt Koyasan (another great location). Our flight had us arriving late, however the front... More

This is already my 2nd time to stay in Kaneyoshi. The location is perfect, locate in the heart of Osaka. Very convenient to go around for shopping, eating and entertainment. It's also near the metro station to access the most of main spots. Inside the ryokan is clean and the room is quite big with the window view to Dotonbori.... More

Throughout our 2 week Japanese adventure, my sister nagged and nagged me to book a night in a Japanese Ryokan. I was hesitant, as I had researched a few places with paper thin walls and communal bathing ( clearly not my style Ya' know). Whilst in Osaka, we decided we would do it, so the night before I booked a... More

Stayed here one night and ordered the breakfast/dinner package.. well worth it. The hosts were extremely helpful in providing us with a layout of the city as well as to make us feel perfectly at ease in the Ryokan. There is one main room for eating/sleeping as well as a side room which acts as a sun room overlooking the... More

What a wonderful place to stay. Despite other comments in regards to decor it is very easy to look past this when staying in such a fantastic location. As other posts have alluded to the staff are amazing - the cleaning staff are excellent, clean the rooms everyday and make your bed. The staff at the front desk are extremely... More

Our initial impressions were similar to another contributor, somewhat disappointed on arrival with hotel older style, dated decor and basic amenities.However they make up... More

While the ryokan seemed to be a small place, the customer service was the best my partner and I had in Japan. Friendly, warm and inviting, while the initial thoughts were a little disappointed, once we settled in and saw our room, we feel this was one of the best hotel we experienced in our trip around Japan.

We started our trip in Japan in Osaka and the Hotel was our base for 5 days. Ultra friendly staff, clean room, great service! Even gave us farewell gifts, as well as advice on securing tickets on the Shinkansen down to Hiroshima and back up to Tokyo. Based in the entertainment sector of Osaka, very close to tourist spots, train... More

We stayed here one night to be close to the nightlife in Osaka before we ventured to Kyoto the next day. The front desk was very helpful and thorough with all of our requests. We got a little lost as we didn't realize that we needed to make a right as soon as we came out of exit 2 at... More
