We arrived by car, there is free parking space. The reception is friendly and helpful. The room - especially for Japanese standards - is large with a nice bathroom and all the amenities. The wifi works well. There is a public bath on the first floor. The only drawback for me was that I found the hotel a bit noisy. There are rooms with sliding doors that apparently accommodate for many and there were loud people on the landing. It did not get quiet till after midnight and noise resumed early morning. Finally, the location is excellent for Nara sight seeing, the whole park is in walking distance.

Stayed for 4 nights. Loved the location which is a few minutes walk from that Kintetsu train station (you can get a rapid train to Kyoto in 35 mins from there) as well as other parts of Nara city & Kobe. It is also a short walk to the start of Nara Park & right in the thick of shops & restaurants. A friendly greeting from staff was standard every time we returned to the hotel. The room itself was nice & roomy. There was a mini fridge, kettle, tea & coffee supplies, a tv (all Japanese language), 2 sitting chairs, & a small coffee table. Requested an iron with ease. Found this hotel very comfortable & would return. They offer breakfast however I never tried it preferring to dine out in the many Nara eateries.

We rolled into Nara late in the evening and after looking at several hotels we found the Kasuga Hotel, The rooms were incredible. Spacious, pressed robes, slippers, huge bathroom, toilets with a control panel similar to a spacecraft, foot message machine, safes, sewing supplies, free parking, on and on. They have a communal sauna which we did not use as it was so late. In the morning we were happily surprised to find out that we were only a couple of blocks from the Nara Deer Park. We could have walked there had we known. Great boutique hotel for a very reasonable price. When you check in a person goes to the room with you to give you a tour of everything. that was a first in our travels.

A very lovely ryokan. The rooms were big and spacious, especially the bathroom. They also had a wonderful massage chair which was great after a long day of walking. Staff were incredibly professional and polite, and could handle English quite well. Dinner and breakfast provided were delicious and a great example of Japanese kaiseki. Location is very convenient, not even 5mins from Kintetsu Nara station, and just next to a popular shopping street. It's also just 10min from Tofukuji and the area where the deers start to show up.

Thank you very much for choosing our hotel the other day. We are also content you could have a pleasant time in Nara and our hotel. We wish you could have second time to visit Nara, where we can see a variety of scenery of the four seasons

Spacious, comfortable ryokan with large main area for sleeping, and 2 side tatami rooms, one with a settee, chairs & table, and one with traditional Japanese table and floor level seats w/backs. Great for our family of 2 adults & 3 teenagers. Full amenities. Most staff was very friendly. Large, well equipped onsen with indoor & outdoor baths. A 10 minute walk to deer park which starts your journey to all the local temples. Short walk to main shopping street with lots of local items, such as calligraphy supplies. 10-15min walk from Nara JR station, 2min from Kintetsu station.
