The Kaneyoshi Ryokan was the first ryokan experience we had ever had and I wouldn't have it any other way. The guest room we stayed in had a very traditional feel to it, but with some modern amenities. The room itself had tatami mats, a traditional table, TV, A/C, and a separate sitting room. In the sitting room there was... More

We wanted to embrace the culture whilst in Japan and what better way to do it that stay in a Ryokan. We had a good sized room, which was clean and authentic looking. We were provided with kimonos and tea to have our own tea ceremony. The staff were friendly and helpful when providing info of the local area. The... More

Comfortable, very clean and with welcoming, helpful staff, this is a lovely, small hotel. It is a decent walk from Namba JR station. If you arrive by Shinkansen at Shin Osaka, it's much faster and more direct to take a subway train. Close to the amazing nightlife area which varies from bright, cheerful with lots of food places on one... More

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
