What a great cultural experience for our family of 5 to stay as such genuine traditional Japanese accommodation - roll out futons, a sumptuous Japanese dinner served at the low table, followed by western and eastern breakfast. Highly recommended for families or couples : staff very friendly and kids loved their kimonos. A great location - walking distance to nara...

The ryokan is in the park and is very close to the Kasuga Shrine and Todaji temple. There are deer right outside of the hotel, and it's so nice to sit outside with them in peace and quiet. At the end of the day however, I was coming from the southern end of the park, and with my map was...

We stayed for one night in a room for four people. The staff were very friendly, attentive, and were even quite helpful even after we checked out, holding onto our bags while we explored the park, and even bringing us tea when we returned! You'll definitely want to get the dinner/breakfast options that they offer, otherwise you'll be missing out...

This place is the perfect spot for visiting Nara. The location is ideal and gives you a very special, peaceful experience. The staff are very kind and accommodating. I recommend having dinner and breakfast in the ryokan to get the full experience.
