          Japanese traditional style
          I like this hotel because it had me remind Japanese traditional service including atmosphere. It is easy to access the O-Miwa shrine and Miwa JR station, so very helpful for traveler with big package like me.

          do not choose this hotel
          no facilities, far away from jr and not easy to find by car. food is just average but they charge well above average. we travel about 40 days a year and not have such bad experience before. do not book this hotel unless you are looking for a hostel type of accomodation. it is a terrible experience.

          Very nice Ryokan in Miwa
          My wife and I were willing to come to Miwa specifically and we were lucky to find this place. It is a small to medium size ryokan, a few hundred meters from Miwa train station. It is very traditional house with lovely gardens inside, very quiet and well preserved. Uda san (the manager) and all staff have been very kind and helping. By the way, the web site shows : spoken language = Japanese but it was just perfect in English (good for me). I even had an interesting brochure in French (even better) We had a lovely stay and sadly too short. We surely recommend this place.

          Very good
          Charming ryokan close to Miwa station and Omiwa Shrine. Our host recommended the Sakura spot on the hill in the evening and it was a lovely walk up through the shrine. We walked Yamanobe-no-michi to Tenri and took the train back to Miwa. Also walked into Sakurai and returned by train.

          Nice place to explore true Japanese style
          Though 30 min from Nara center, it is a nice place inside true Japanese culture and close to several oldest shrines in Japan. The owner and staff command good English.

          We have good experience in this ryokan.
          We check-in here quite late but the owner still welcome us with hot green tea and dessert. He gives us a lot of maps of Miwa District. We are happy to stay here, it's a quite different experience from other cities. We recommend Ryokan Taishoro.

          Great ryokan experience
          Located in a beautiful and quiet town, nice temple and great view on Mt Miwa only 5 min away. Staff is extremely friendly, and together with the delicious food makes for a truly delightful and relaxing ryokan-experience.

          Best secret place!
          Perfect hospitality, Economic price, Comfortable room
          1. Best hospitality quality : I've never experienced service like here. Indeed great service and greeting with traditional Japanese style. 2. Good place : Miwa station(2 minutes far from the Ryokan) is center of Sakurai area and the area is secret good place to see. Oldest temple in Japan is here and many other historical places too. Calm and peaceful. 3. Ryokan is also great but a little bit cold in the winter season - If you are the person who feel cold frequently, then please consider that.
