Unfortunately we were staying in the second building across the road from the main reception, common areas and showers. If you are staying in the main building I'm sure it will be a fine stay however we found having to cross the street in order to shower pretty annoying. Also the only toilet in our building was through 2 other dormitaries. There was also no sink available to brush your teeth which was bizarre. The location is convenient for the castle and gardens and the owner was friendly.


Only one shower for about 20 guests.


I think this is cool traditional-style Japanese house which has been infused with a youthful vibe.


Himeji Guest House Engakudou is a great option to stay in Himeji, definitively you can find a great atmosphere at the guest house and meet friendly people.

Great location, wonderful staff. The staff really takes their time to get to know you and will even take evening strolls with you at night.
