We stayed for two nights at ryokan Yamamoto and it was perfect. Bungu provides tons of information to help you enjoy Kanazawa including maps and restaurant recommendations. It's clean and our room with the private bath was very spacious. Breakfast is also very good (traditional Japanese.)

Bungo and his mother made our stay so special. Nothing is too much. Felt like I was staying with long lost relatives. The welcome and hospitality was first class and all the advice given was spit on. Make sure you get the Japanese breakfast. Extra yummy. Rooms spotless and the garden outside our room was relaxing. Close to everything so... More

I stayed at Ryokan Yamamuro over Golden week in Kanazawa (04.05.-06.05.) and I cannot recommend it highly enough. The proprietor Bunga was the most thoughtful, considerate and helpful host I have ever encountered. When I celebrated my birthday whilst staying at the ryokan, he even went to the effort of buying me a gift - so unexpected but a wonderful... More

If you like ryokan and the type of hospitality (shared services, thin walls between rooms), there might be no issue. Now, if you are looking for quietness, a ryokan is not the best option, and Tamamoro is no exception to the rule. Most tourists have no clue about normal and respectful behaviour and are extremely noisy. Nevertheless, Tamamoro is a... More

Ryokan Yamamuro is an awesome and quiet ryokan. Was there with my family for 2 nights and we have a really nice and quiet time. I love how it retained its authenticity and it is not commercialized like how many ryokans have become. Bungo-san and his mother showed us generous hospitality - with the delicious breakfast to the fabulous guidance... More

We had the biggest room in the hotel, it had the private bath. The futon mattresses were nice and tick and comfortable to sleep on. Our room had a nice traditional garden to view also. Breakfast each morning was expertly cooked and not over the top. I really enjoyed the traditional breakfast each morning. Bungo runs the place and he... More

Bungo Yamamuro provides more than a beautiful room, fabulous ginger cookies and tea, and a great location. We arrived with not much time in Kanazawa and he planned our time so efficiently that we were able to walk through the gardens, tour the Ninja temple (surprisingly interesting), go to a Geisha presentation in the Geisha district, and eat at a...

Ryokan Yamamuro is a no frills Japanese inn. It is owned and managed by Mr. Bungo Yamamuro and his mother. The ryokan has been in their family for more than 100 years! It's easy to miss the inn's simple facade. The interiors are very basic with functional rooms and minimal decor. In terms of hotel grades, this is probably a... More

We had a large room with futons and wash basin, we shared toilet & bathroom with other guests which was very clean, it was in a great position enabling us to walk to all the sites. Bungo & his Mother are extremely kind and helpful making this a lovely homely place to stay. The interior is a little dated but... More

3 of us had a lovely stay here on our family road trip through Honshu. Buncho is a friendly and very kind host, offering many tips about what to see and do in Kanazawa (there's plenty!) He's a lovely guy who can't do enough to help. We stayed in the Matsu room, with a shared bathroom and toilet (down one... More
