    Lovely short stay at a traditional Japanese home. The hosts are very welcoming and had lots of recommendations. It was very quiet when I was there so I didn’t find the atmosphere particularly social, but I got a whole room to myself so I’m not complaining! Good walking distance from everything — yes it’s a tad further from Nara station but it’s right beside another station, plus it’s in the heart of downtown Nara and close to the park which was more important for me! I highly recommend!!

    Little mom and pop style hostel, offers tatami guest rooms for 2 or a 4 bed hostel room. Really cosy and traditional home, with all the amenities and close to a local train station- just one stop from Nara station (very easy to find). The staff where super helpful and friendly, they also recommended a local sento which was interesting and enjoyable, I bathed with 3 grandmas. Overall very nice.

    I really enjoyed sleeping in the traditional room and loved the history of the room and building. It was very much appreciated and i will always remember it fondly. It is a very well run guesthouse. As a british person it was a very unusual experience to have so many rules to follow however and this does make it less relaxing but nevertheless i would recommend it if the guest is able to adhere to the house rules. Thank you for looking after us.
