We were a couple in our mid forties and our two daughters (a teen and a pre-teen). This guest house was our first Ryokan in Japan and we enjoyed our stay and the warm hospitality of the owners who were nice to converse with despite their limited English. We reserved several months in advance (through fax which was a bit...

Although we had booked to stay a night, our flight from Honk Kong was delayed 12 hours because of a typhoon. We had warned the owner so she wasn't surprised when we arrived the next morning. She was very welcoming and showed us our room, which was all we had expected. It's a very typical small family owned ryokan in...

We stayed 3 nights, just for the experience. Rates were extremely reasonable, and the breakfast @ 525Yen per person must be the cheapest Japanese breakfast in Osaka! Though not used to sleeping on the floor, we found the futons very comfortable and slept soundly each night. The airconditioner remote controller needed a bit of figuring out but once we did,...

This guesthouse is really a little gem. It's on a small lane just off a rather large street 2 min from Tennoji railway station. Some reviewers say it's difficult to find, but if you use the map from their site, it's really quite simple. We stayed in a Japanese style room. The pillows were tiny and stone hard, but apart...

For us it was like the inn keeper has adapted us as their family. The cultural barrier melted away with their smiles and loving care. We learned to use the communal bath, the staff will lock off for your party. Get the traditional breakfast it is an event by itself. It is a historical building with antiquity and character. We...

I took 2 days on the ferry from Shanghai to get here for 1 night, then had 4 days ferry ride back to Shanghai, due to a typhoon. But it was so worth it. Getting to the house from the subway station isn't easy, as the street looks like a main road on the map, instead of a small path....

Stayed for one night with spouse and a 10 year old in a tatami room on first floor of the building. We wanted to experience living in a traditional Japanese home. Initially booked for 2 nights but glad that i revised the booking to just one night. They have a website (http://www.hokousou.com/e/p03.html) but do not have email, booking is through...

We had a very nice stay at Hokoso. The owner very kindly waited up for our late flight. The rooms and bathing facilities were comfortable and spotless. Breakfast was delicious and great value. My only word of caution is that if you want to be out late, especially in the centre of town, look elsewhere. I didn't realize that Hokoso...

We stayed at Hokoso for four days. It is a block from the major train/subway station, across the street from the museurm, park and zoo, down the street from an ancient temple. A perfect location! The family is super-friendly! They tell you, "this is your home," and that is how you are treated. We stayed in the large tatami room,...

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for a night. We had a great time there. The bedroom we stayed faces a mini garden, it was clean and lovely. The traditional Japanese bath is very interesting, I strongly recommend all of the guests to experience the bathing. This hotel is very traditional. We shared the bath and the toilet...
