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.


Engakudou is a fantastic little minshuku just minutes from Himeji Castle. The family that runs it are extremely friendly and helpful, giving us plentiful information regarding places to eat and visit. The feeling of belonging was strong at Engakudou, both with the owner and the other guests. The kotatsu was very welcome. Inside, the building is creaky but warm, with several pebble gardens separating the areas. New renovations for the busy period in 2015 are underway to increase capacity.
