We loved our stay at Kakimotoya. The food, service, room, and onset were great. I just love this place. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Our room was so neat and clean overlooking cherry trees in bloom. You can use the tub to death on the balcony or go to the public bath in the ryokan. The view from...

Thank you for coming Kakimotoya. We greatly appreciate receiving your comment. And we are very pleased that you were very satisfied to stay in Kakimotoya.

The hotel was very traditional, if a little dated. We had a private bath on our balcony which really made it for us and the location was stunning and very peaceful.

We visited Kakimotoya during a sakura trip in the spring a couple years ago. We had been to Nara on another trip several years ago and wanted our friends to experience it as well as the ryokan, kaiseki traditional Japanese inn cultural experience. Except for the inclement weather, we were not disappointed as the ryokan is located away from the...
