I was so glad that I decided to book this ryokan. It was super clean. All staff were very friendly and thoughtful. As soon as we arrived at the entrance they ran out and offered to take our bags. We were served tea while waiting to be checked in. The meals were delicious and pretty. We had two traditional Japanese breakfast (each was different), one traditional dinner, and one shabushabu served in our room. The obasan (I guess she was the chef) was very thoughtful. She introduced each dish to us very patiently (I know only a little Japanese). The gentleman who was assigned to take care of our stay was friendly, thoughtful, and helpful. He took the time to tell us about the hotel and the city. He even showed us a trip planner patiently on a map. When we decided to go out for a walk after dinner, he gave us a torch, how thoughtful! We enjoyed the public bath a lot. It was beautiful and relaxing. The bathroom and toilet inside the room was clean and convenient as well. The experience was simply terrific. I wish I could stay a few more days! It was located only 10 minutes from the Nara Park and Todaiji, and 15 minutes from Nara Kintetsu Station. We spent about US$1200 for 3 adults for 2 nights. It was so worth it because the meals, which were prepared with hearts, could have taken up half of the price already! Highly recommended!
