I booked this ryokan on the recommendation of a friend and it was truly amazing, unforgettable - if you want to experience something truly beautiful in Japan this is the place for you - its definitely not cheap but it is worth every $$$ you spend. My husband and I were lucky enough to have a room with our own... More

If you are looking for a traditional Japanese Guest House experience you cannot beat this accomodation. Honkan is located in Kinosaki Onsen which is a small spa (onsen) town about 2 hours away from Kyoto. Originally I wanted to try a Ryokan in Kyoto but due to the expense and the quality decided to stay here and I could not... More

Beautifully styled decor, delicious food, warm hosts and a wonderful onsen experience. I hope this isn’t a once in a lifetime as i’d love to visit Nishimuraya Honkan again. The Kaiseki dinner was a 10 course work of art. Kinosaki Onsen is a charming town and we enjoyed clip clopping around the streets in our sandals. If you’re searching for... More

My wife and I stayed at Nishimuraya Honkan for our honeymoon and we had an amazing time. From emails exchanged prior to our stay to the time we stayed, we were treated with attentiveness and care that I have never experienced. When we got out of the Kinosakionsen station, a shuttle bus for NIshimuraya was waiting already. When the driver... More

The Nishimura Honkon (main building) is located near the end of the onsen street which takes about 15 minutes to walk from the train station. And since it is located off the main area, it occupied a bigger lot than most other hotels. The annex hotel is much bigger in size and therefore located even further down from the corner... More

I trusted the reviews on this ryokan and I wasn't disappointed. Everything about it (the room, the garden, the ambiance, the cuisine, the staff) was beyond my expectations. Especially our gracious room attendant, who made us feel special.

From the moment we arrived we knew we were in for a special experience. Welcoming staff, beautiful room, tranquil atmosphere and fantastic food. Absolutely fantastic. The onsen in the hotel is lovely, the larger one is perfect although I was less taken by the smaller one. A little more expensive than others we looked at but the attention to detail... More

We arrived at the train station with a train from Kyoto and were picked up by a bus who dropped us directly in front of the Ryokan. We were extremely friendly greeted, left our shoes at the entrance and continued walking in the slippers provided by the hotel. The hotel has traditional wooden interior, a fantastically maintained internal garden with... More

We booked into Nishimuraya Honkan for a single night, and within hours of arriving, our party of 4 agreed that we should have booked two nights instead. Although prices may seem steep at first, it's an absolute bargain all things considered. Nishimuraya Honkan is a beautiful ryokan property, so peaceful and very worth the two hour train journey from Kyoto.... More

Loved it here! The service was out of this world and the food amazing. The crab kaiseki dinner was so huge we could barely finish it. Breakfast was also a feast. Loved everything we tried. We had fun walking around in the yukatas and geta shoes in the village and enjoying the public on send. We also did a private... More
