5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Great traditional Japanese experience
Pretty much everything about this place was great. The staff were welcoming and very helpful (and did well with speaking English). The room itself was brilliant and was everything you could hope for from a tatami mat ryokan room. I'd definitely recommend the private hot spring room! Yukata are supplied too to give the full traditional experience. Location was perfect and was easily accessible due to the free shuttle bus they offer from Kintetsu-Nara station. The shuttle bus also took us straight to Nara Park the following day which was very helpful

Love the location at the top of the mountain and bus services. Excellent quadlingual staff and worthwhile kaiseki. Would be perfect if it was natural water. Still a great stay.
