We loved our stay at the Fukuchiin! The tatami room was bigger than many of the other places we had stayed in Japan, the common areas and gardens were beautiful, and we absolutely loved the meals that were not only delicious to eat but beautiful to look at. The two young men who served us our meals and prepared our... More

I can't fault this place on cleanliness, the staff or any of the facilities. It was a nice HOTEL! What it wasn't was a cultural, authentic or spiritual experience staying in a monastery with monks. The onsen's were ok. Quite small. Well equipped. The staff was lovely. It felt like a night in an ok hotel for a lot of... More

When you enter Fukuchi-in you can walk throug a very fine garden. But don'let the appearences deceive you. Garden was the only good thing. We had an awful experience. Japanese old style room had chipped walls and was dirty, stinky and full of dust. Furthermore we found a very big dead spider upon a pillow. We asked to carry away... More

Staying at Fukuchi-in was the highlight of our trip to Japan. Awesome traditional Japanese experience staying in a temple, it was just amazing. The temple is so well-maintained, very clean, gives you both the spiritual and traditional feeling and a real 4+ star quality sense at the same time. I'd say it's really worth the extra money compared to some... More

I cannot praise Fukuchi in enough ! The entire stay was amazing ! The staff are very friendly and welcoming. We left our bags and went for a walk around town and the temples as we were early for check-in. When we came back we got a tour of the temple, they had brought our huge bags to our beautiful...

Very serene stay in a very beautiful temple. The bathrooms are shared, very clean however. The onsen was particularly nice and clean, especially the outdoor area. The morning mass was spectacular, an experience worth waking up early for. The room like everything else was very authentic. It didn't lock from the outside, it had a safe though. The vegan breakfast... More

For personal reasons I arrived well past 9pm (time the temple closes the doors) but was still welcomed by the staff who showed me the place around, served me dinner, and offered me to enjoy the onsen! The onsen facility is great including the outdoor pool. The place is very relaxing, clean, well maintained, and beautiful. It serves the purpose... More

This temple was all that we hoped for, we had an amazing time here. The food was exceptional, the hot springs were so relaxing, it was not too crowded, morning meditation was a very cool experience, the place has beautiful gardens, and the monks were very hospitable. Some of the workers did speak english and were very helpful in showing... More

I am not quite sure how to rate temple ryokan accommodation because obviously it cannot be compared to a 5 star city hotel. However, I have given the Fukuchi-In 5 stars because it had everything you could expect of temple accommodation. Our room was larger than we expected and faced the front courtyard and the lovely stone dry garden. Reception... More
