“The Perfect Guesthouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

This small guesthouse is 100 years old, and was the home of the owner's grandmother. The hosts, Tad and Junko, really made us feel welcome, nothing was too much trouble for them. The house itself gives you an excellent feel for historic Japanese living, and the rooms are very clean and safe.

It is perfectly located for the park, and the restaurants and shops.

If you are looking for something traditional in Nara, I can strongly recommend this little gem.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Kaki room - very comfortable and quiet.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

This is a real classical house located in the middle of Nara downtown. Tatami rooms are clean and comfortable with air conditioners. The bath (ofuro) is the same as you see in a regular Japanese homes. The hostess Junko is very kind to tell you everything she knows about Nara and japan. The breakfast she prepares is a real homemade; materials are from her husband's farms neareby. Really delicious. Yes, this is one of the real gems of Japanese authentic houses.

Room Tip: Bring your pajamas with you.
