We had a great time here. Despite being in the middle of the city, once we were inside we felt like we were in a traditional ryokan. We also had a balcony to look out over the river. Breakfast was prompt and the bed was comfortable. We have no complaints!

I stayed at the Kaneyoshi for 3 nights in October 2013 and would have no hesitation in going right back if I was ever in Osaka again. The Guesthouse is in a great central location and is within walking distance to the Shinsaibashi and DotonburI and a number of subway stations. Its really is a great neighbourhood to see all... More

I cannot heap enough praise onto the staff at the ryokan! Even before my trip to Japan had started things didn't quite go to plan. The guest house I was originally meant to stay at went bankrupt a few weeks before I was due to go to Japan and also my connecting flight to Osaka was delayed for several hours... More

For anyone from the West it can be a thrilling, if slightly intimidating, experience arriving in Japan with barely any grasp of the language and less still understanding the written Kanji. The Kaneyoshi Ryokan then is a gentle and extremely friendly introduction to the traditional Japanese approach to hotels. It is by no means luxurious but it is comfortable and... More

In the perfect place if you want to see the lively evening/nightlife of Osaka. Right next to streets packed with restaurants, video games places, shops, and the occasional cat cafe. We loved this area and staying here. The rooms were comfy although we struggled a bit with the mats on the floor so i'm glad we didn't book Ryokan for... More

we had difficulty securing osaka accommodation so took this at last minute; the most expensive ryokan we've stayed in so far. it has a lot going for it, namely its' proximity to namba, but sadly the place reeks of smoke. the bedroom is huge, has a separate little veranda overlooking the river & a decent en suite. the staff are...

I stayed at this Ryokan with my husband and 2 friends (also a couple) for a night in May. The staff were so, so friendly and helpful. They even confirmed all of our other accommodation we had booked in Japan for us and printed out train times etc. This Ryokan is in a great area - perfect for exploring the... More

I decided to stay in the Namba area after reading reviews on trip advisor. I wanted to stay in a Ryokan so I decided on Kaneyoshi Ryokan and I am glad I did, I had a very good experience here. The hotel gave very good instructions on how to get to the Ryokan – as I was travelling solo and... More

We booked my family to stay here for 4 nights. We chose the hotel as the location is very convenient, and we thought a Ryokan experience would nicer than a standard hotel for people new to Japan. Staff spoke good English and the ladies who took bags to room were very friendly and helpful. The night manager on check was... More
