Very spacious room, which for Japan is a big plus, clean and nice in the Ryokan style of accommodation.

Amazing experience with Traditional Japanese style accommodation. The place is very clean and the mattress is super comfortable. Two of us booked a room up to 5pax, which is huge. There is private toilet and bathroom in our room. It is also a good experience to go to public bath. The double layer windows block all noise from the street. It is a quiet area anyway. There is PiPPA bike parking nearby. Thank you for the gentleman who carried my super heavy suitcase to our room. Salute!

Perfect Ryokan Experience
I have always wanted to stay at a Ryokan and this was the perfect experience. The ofuro was very relaxing with a beautiful garden to view from the soaking tub, room was clean, and it felt very private. It was the ryokan experience I had always dreamed of! I would totally recommend. However, it is a traditional ryokan with tatami mats and thin futons. My father did say that sleeping on the floor like that was really hard on him, so understand what you’re getting into before booking.

Gorgeous Ryokan Hotel
I and wife stayed here for 4 nights, what a gorgeous experience stay in this traditional Japanese Ryokan hotel. The room was very big, immaculate clean and comfortable, looks like newly renovated. The room has a separate Shower/tub, toilet and sink, good quality toiletries were provided. Everyday the tea, coffee and cookies were replenished. The owner, Nakamura san and night duty staff, Hiroshi san were friendly and helpful in guiding how to get to each location. Wifi was good in the room. The hotel is located about 10 mins. walk from the Jingu-Marutamachi Station. All in all very satisfied and highly recommend this place to anyone.
