    Lovely old Japanese restaurant but refurbished. Not the most convenient location, both outside the park and away from centre. Also checkin could be streamlined - first needed to fill in a form with all our passport information, then later they photocopied our passports.

    Authentic old Japanese House”

    This place is beautiful. We stayed in one of the private rooms with shared bath. Rooms are small but comfortable. There are plenty of spaces in the Hostel to hang out, eat, chat and meet other guests. The location is a bit of a walk from the tourist sights but the Naramachi area is full of small shops and cafes to explore.
