Nagasaki Kagamiya
Reviewed 18 June 2013

Kagamiya was my 'home' for 3 weeks and if I could give more then 5 stars, I would. You are very lucky if you can get to know these wonderful people! They will make you smile and let you know all the ins and outs in Nagasaki. From the hostel you can easily take a streetcar (120¥ fixed price) or walk to many of the main sights. In nearby Shindaiku you can find your fruits, coffee and bento, and take your time to talk to all the kind shop owners around this area and just wander around through all the picturesque nearby alleys. If you are looking for the real Nagasaki-experience, stay at Kagamiya. (And make sure you check out the beautiful antique kimono's they rent!)

Four of us stayed in one of the Annex buildings. The rooms were clean and spacious by Japanese standards. (I have stayed in a lot of Japanese accomodation.) The location is easy to access on the tram network and in a pretty, quiet backstreet next to a small shrine. The owners lovely and very helpful. I gave it five stars, not for the facilities which were standard for the price range (albiet lovingly presented), but because the value was exceptional.

The place is well accessed through the tram lines or as they call then in Japan 'street cars'. The attractions, such as the ropeway to the million dollar view, a-bomb museum, gardens etc are easily accessed through the same streetcars. The directions on their website are perfect to arrive to the place. The owners are great people, very friendly and respectful. They were also made sure to keep me company during when I was alone. The place has an authentic Japan feel. Cannot complain on anything, staying here was one of the nice memories of Japan that I will cherish when get back home. Thank you!

This is the best hostel I've stayed at in Japan so far! The staff were so lovely, and let us check in 3 hours early after catching a night bus from Hiroshima so we were able to catch up on some sleep.
The hostel was a beautiful, traditional Japanese house style and the facilties were great. Very clean too.
On our last night there, the lady dressed us up in kimono from her vast collection, it was so kind of her. Such a lovely, kind couple that run the hostel. Highly recommended!

A friendly couple run this little accommodation business in a Nagasaki suburb. All the facilities are clean and neat, and it’s a pleasant place to stay. The house has a comfortable communal room but there isn’t a kitchen; just a sink and hot water but no microwave or other cooking facilities, nor any plates or cutlery. But it does have laundry facilities. The full kimono experience is available as an extra attraction.

The hostel might look remote on the map but it’s just a five-minute walk from the end of a tram line, and with a day tram pass it’s a very convenient base for exploring the city. There is some traffic noise from a nearby busy road.

My friend and i took the japanese floor room for couple of days. We enjoyed so much with kind hosts who make their place clean and organized. It was comfortable as an old shoes.
There was shampoo, after shampoo, hair-dryer.

I strongly recomended this guest house for many many reasons.

Try antique Kimono(if you're lucky, or the owner is not busy you can put on beatiful japanese traditional cloth)

It cost you to take a cap 1,000yen from the nagasaki station or main bus terminal.

Take a breath, and stay in nagasaki kagamiya! You will see more than that what you expect!
