The staff is friendly and the room pleasant, with attractive flower arrangements in the alcoves. However, they charge an outrageous 2200 yen per hour late check-out fee, otherwise if you want to leave your bag past 10:00AM it sits in the lobby with a sheet over it. Dinner was good, attractively presented though not top quality, the eel was disappointing compared to Kawatoyo in town, which I recommend highly. I did find the tiny fugu in the paper hot bowl very tasty. The onsen is purely utilitarian and unadorned, more like a sanatorium than typical of a ryokan or honten. Still, if you want to observe the 6:00AM goma (Sanskrit 'homa') fire ritual at Shinshoji, which is solemn and impressive, a high point of Shingon Buddhism, there is no better place to stay. Tourist buses only begin to arrive around 9:30, the temple grounds are quite peaceful until then.

We were visiting friends in Narita, touring the Shinshoji Temple (one of the nicest). It was lunch time so we crossed the street to Wakamatsu Honten. I enjoyed a very DELICIOUS Eel Unagidon (grilled eel on rice) served with Miso and some wonderful pickles. My friend has a tempura that looked to die for. Service is fast, and friendly (in and out in less than an hour) and English wasn't a problem. We asked about the hotel and were given a tour of the various rooms. They range from a simple room for two people to a suite that would hold 10. Rooms are in a traditional Japanese Inn style, you'll be sleeping on a futon on the tatami. The facility is quite, and I think quite inexpensive for what you get.

This was our second visit to this lovely Ryokan. The property is clean and the staff is friendly. They provided a shuttle to the Narita train station in the morning. We chose to have both dinner and breakfast here and the food was well prepared and presented. The dinner had many different foods including tempura. Breakfast was Buddhist style with no meat or fish products. The on-site bath was relaxing after a long flight. We had a room overlooking the Narita temple and the view is beautiful and peaceful. Note that they do ring the temple bell several times around 5:30 AM. The property is a pleasant, mostly downhill 15 minute walk from the Narita train station. The Narita station is only one stop from the airport on the JR line.

We only stayed one night, before our flight out from Narita Airport. I wish we had more time to enjoy the room and Narita town. We went to a little restaurant a short stroll up the road for the most delicious tempura I have ever had. Oh, and unagi too! Would definitely be back!

Decent place to try Japanese tatami bed and shared hot bath during layover. Not one of those fancy Ryokans, but the room is spacious, clean with everything you need for one night stay, and so much cheaper! Naritasan park and temple are cross the street, worth visiting if you have time.
