We had a great stay in this quaint ryokan at the heart of the old quarter. The services are very friendly. The ladies at the reception speak some English. The house is elegant and top clean. It is worthwhile to spend 2 nights in this charming town, but try to avoid weekends.

We stayed at the Ryokan Tsurugata for 2 nights at the end of September. It is a high end ryokan with attentive, courteous, ‘old school’ staff. The inn is spotless with gleaming polished wooden floors throughout the public areas and beautiful, fresh, ikebana displays outside and in. We ordered dinner for both nights and on our first night we were...

Kurashiki has an old charming touristic center and Tsuruguta Ryokan is just located in its middle. Perhaps are they a bit too accustomed to tourism? It's the third time I travel to Japan, I have ever been to many ryokans and I can claim I know the basic rules of the codes of practice in this styles of lodging. The...

Having stayed at numerous ryokans in Kyoto, Miyajima and Nara, this ryokan though not as luxurious nor stunning as the ones like Kankaso in Nara or the Yoshida Sanso in Kyoto, this has got to be a very good value traditional ryokan indeed. We can only blame ourselves by arriving on a Saturday when the ryokan's 13 rooms were all...

Located in the Kurashiki Bikan Historical quarter, this ryokan was established in the Edo period, but with many upgraded facilities since then. However, it remain a traditional ryokan. From the Kurashiki Bikan street side, you will be met by ryokan representatives and checked in. Our bags were left at the ryokan earlier, and we found these in our room. Some...

If you want to stay in a hotel, then pick a hotel. However, if you want a genuine Japanese Ryokan experience then you may like Tsurugata Ryokan. Kurashiki has a beautiful old quarter in which Tsurugata Ryokan is located. Be prepared for a traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast which may include some dishes which are unusual for a Western palate...

We stayed in the garden view room for 1 night in mid Dec12. The ryokan is perfectly located next to the river and about 15 minutes walk from JR. The room is very clean but a bit small with a lively garden is lovely! The japanese style in-room dinner was bravo and we were consulted about our preference before the...

The hotel is located in a traditional building in a pedestrian street in the center of Kurashiki (around 700m from the railway station). The room in Japanese style was very big, comfortable and clean. The room rate (inclusive of breakfast and dinner) was expensive but still below average for such accommodations. The Japanese breakfast was very good and a unique...

Tsurugata is a rather traditional ryokan. They have buckwheat pillows, which I found was like sleeping on hard sand. Dinner and breakfast are compulsory (included in the room rate) - they do not serve western breakfasts, so unless you like raw fish and egg first thing in the morning, best to eat out at a cafe nearby. The evening meals...

Ryokan Tsurugata was wonderful! It is perfectly situated in the middle of old Kurashiki. We did pass by it originally because it does not have a sign in english indicating its name. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The ryokan is a beautiful building with a lovely garden that guests are free to walk around in. Our room was...
