We wanted to stay at a ryokan whilst in Japan and this was a very pretty ryokan. However, used to western ways, we were not able to really get into the experience. We found our standard twin room small and a bit stuffy. There was little room to get around once the futons were on the floor and lying on... More

The rooms and the building are traditional Japanese. It's an old building, but well maintained. Very friendly service (although it seemed like SO many people were working there??). Japanese breakfast is not my cup of tea, but obviously of good quality. We got unlimited tea in our room and the onsen is open 24h a day! Loved it here.. Very... More

To break up our trip a little and to experience a ryokan, we found Nanten-en online and decided to book it. It is a very convenient walk from the railway station and the staff were well versed in English. The grounds were absolutely lovely and the rooms were great too. Dinner was served in the room at the time alloted... More

We stayed 1 night at the start of Sakura season. After about 1.5 hour of travelling from Osaka station and walking downhill 3 mins to the ryokan, we were warmly greeted by the ryokan staff. A young man with very good English took us to our rooms and gave a comprehensive overview of the facilities and was most helpful with... More

Please experience this type of traditional Japanese ryokan guesthouse. Set in beautiful gardens you are met at the door by almost all the staff. They take your shoes and you wear slippers throughout the hotel. We had breakfast and dinner which were both freshly made and delicious - and totally Japanese so don't expect anything western at all. The rooms... More

My wife and I usually stay 1 night at a ryokan per trip to Japan to pamper ourselves with onsen and kaiseki dinner. We chose Nanten-en on basis of its easy accessibility from Osaka via train. Location: Excellent. Nanten-en is 70m (Google map said so) from the Amami train station along the Nankai-Koya line. It's clearly sign-posted from the train... More

A wonderful ryokan. The rooms were really nice and beautiful. 2 futon beds easily fit in there and were quite comfortable. We were served a welcome tea when we arrived and there was more tea on the table (2 kinds) for us to brew ourselves. The onsen was delightful and open almost 24h a day (with a brief cleaning break...

The ryokan is very beautiful, extremely clean and serves excellent dishes. We stayed there in late November so autumn was amazing. The staff spoke very minimal English but they were very helpful and kind.

Greeted on arrival, taken on tour of facilities. Staff spoke English and always very helpful. Room spacious and clean with sitting area overlooking small garden. If on set menu, dinner served in room, breakfast in dining room - plenty of food, of good quality. Futons probably the most comfortable of trip with two types of pillows, for those who don't...
