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.

you need improve the installations, specially the bath zone and take the bussiness more seriously


Had a short stay but the place is pretty nice. Well located and has a real atmosphere. The staff was really friendly and always eager to help you (even the neighbours !). Too bad there was also a circus troop staying that night, pretty noisy but it was still worth the price. Would come again if i come back to Himeji.
