  • Honestly, it was a mistake to go to a high class ryokan for my first day because I ended up comparing everything against that standard. For the most part, it was really good. I ended up with the room with a broken light so they fixed it for me and gave me a free service tea. For the money, it's really good and I loved the futon, I couldn't seem to get myself out of the comfy bed. Location-wise, it's perfect! Near Dotonbori-Nama area and very convenient

  • Yamatoya Honten is a fantastic place in Osaka, the location is absolutely perfect, right in the heart of the city and easy to get around and explore. Staff are extremely happy and very eager to help, our experience was wonderful. Nice public bath on the basement floor, welcome drinks, nice little chopsticks gift for foreign visitors, overall they do a great job, would definitely recommend and stay here again!
