When you arrive in touristic Nara, you go up to Kasuga Taisha to continue the path through the woods. And there it is... a hidden gem! Lost in the middle of nature, small cottages linked by a path traced in the forest and outside blend into the forest... It is a unique, sublime, almost unreal place.... The room has large windows overlooking nature. It is the most peacful place we stayed in Japan No wifi, no TV... just you and the nature The private bathroom was a great experience. The food was exceptional! We would like to thank the staff who was really nice and helpful. They made our stay even more magical. We were feeling like home.
We really wanted to try a ryokan and after some searching we came across Tsukihitei. The pictures looked nice and gave us an authentic japanese vibe. When we arrived our first thought was: what a beautiful place and building. De rooms were exactly what you would expect for a ryokan. After a amazing 10-course meal, they prepared a bath for us to relax. While we were dining, the staff pulled out our futons for the night. In de morning they came and got us for breakfast and, again while we were eating, they removed the futons. We only stayed one night, but it was one of the most unforgettable experiences ever!
There's something quite special about being surrounded by nature, on top of the mountain and watching deers as you have your breakfast. A small traditional ryokan that has great service but is not quite luxurious. The rooms are a little worn, though exceptionally clean and the view more than makes up for it. Privacy is valued here, you have your meals in a private room and you can book one of the two private onsens. We hardly saw anyone else, but who we did see staying there were mainly locals. The service was familiar, though mostly in Japanese and a little English, but we could communicate all right. Dinner was kaiseki, and was good though not memorable. We had a nice bottle of Nara sake with our meal. We had a bit of a hard time looking for this place, the GPS in the car and Google Maps lead us in circles around the forest. Asking the locals did the trick.…
We stayed here on the last night of our recent trip, in early November. The awesome bits: It is very private and nestled in the forest; it is out of the most touristy parts of Nara but in walkable distance; it is on the walking trail to Mt Wakasayama (sp?); the set up is brilliant with little watercourses etc and it is very authentic - like something from a movie or anime; the staff are lovely; the food is amazing - up there with the best I've had; the onsen bath is nice; the room is huge with a nice bathroom and great outlook into the forest. The not so awesome bits: you cant check in until 4PM which is a bit late - 3 would be better; you couldnt open the windows in our room - probably because of insects; I dont think that wandering about is encouraged probably to protect others' privacy - so when you are there it is pretty much in your room (with no opening windows) or in the bath, which is reserved; typically of Japanese establishments there is no wine on offer, so drinks choices for non beer drinkers are limited. A very amazing place, I'd stay again.…
Just one word to describe everything: AWESOME We decided to try this authentic local traditional ryokan after reading good reviews on the tripadvisor. We drove and almost lost in the trek trail going up to the ryokan (careful when driving up as you will see deers after deers). The ryokan is located at the slope of Kasugayama Primeval Forest, and dont worry about car-park since they only have 3 rooms. The only feedback that they might worth considering is having the direct access from room to onsen willl be good though this idea might be impossible.
First time staying in a ryokan and great place to do so. Staff very friendly albeit not the most fluent in English. Room was comfortable, bed they set up was great and floors were heated. It does get cold in the winter especially in the bathroom. Used one of the outdoor baths which was great, although again getting to and from the bath from our room was ice cold. Food was great, had kaiseki for dinner with around 12 courses and a large breakfast as well, service very attentive. Location was serene, it is a 20 min walk into the city centre but we liked being away from it all. Stayed for one night which I think was enough for the experience. Do note they are quite strict with their check in/out times.
Tsukihitei is a traditional Japanese ryokan nestled deep on the slope of Kasugayama Primeval Forest. It is the right place If you look for somewhere quite and refreshing. The place is well managed. The service was excellent as you may expect from a traditional ryokan. There are only three suites. There are two public bathrooms which you use privately. Highly recommend to try them. Marina speaks very good English.
This is a truly magical place. A traditional ryokan settled in a world heritage listed forrest with no one for neighbors except the trees. It is a 5 minute walk outside the eastern boundary of Nara Park but accessible by a short taxi ride from either of Nara's railway stations. The staff are friendly and some have excellent english although others have just enough to get by. The food was the best we had in Japan with the usual traditional Japanese for dinner and the choice of Japanese or Western for breakfast. We chose the former. We walked down to Nara Park and the major sights but enjoyed the hot tubs and just sitting. My advice - do it at the end of your trip when you just want to chill.
