Kotono Yado Musashino

  • Nara > Nara ・Yamatokoriyama


Nara-- the ancient capital of Japan.  
Kotono Yado Musashino is a rare inn that situates within Nara Park.
It first started as a small tea house that earned the affection of literati and politicians. As the oldest inn in Nara, the hotel's fame remains unchanged. 

You're invited to pass through the gate where history, tea, and our chefs' seasonal sweets welcome you.
You're sure to notice the brilliant flower arrangements when you take in the view of the building.
The owner makes sure each arrangement harmonies with the season.

Each room is unique and has an underlying theme of peace overlaid with the ever changing nature of Nara Park.
The rooms feature a wooden ceiling that is shaped like the bottom of a boat with high center and a relaxing wooden deck. 
The bathroom has a faint woody fragrance. Please relax in the bath while enjoying the breeze coming from Mount Wakakusa.
We also have a family bath prepared for you!

Dine in the warmth of your room. 
Our classic course uses seasonal ingredients from Nara Prefecture will no doubt make you smile. 
We can prepare your breakfast as a lunch box. Carry your pipping hot lunch to Mt. Wakakusa and eat while its invigorating breeze blows.

The primeval forest houses large herds of grass grazing deer.
Why not take a break where there's warm hospitality and the historical Kasuga Grand Shrine and Todaiji Temple are nearby?

I wanted to know the explanation of breakfast explanation (Tsuyu noodle?). There was no reply to the question entered at the time of reservation, so I was worried whether I could make a reservation. I wrote as a family bath, but there was a luxurious bath in a rustic room, there was a drink in the lounge, it was a very happy trip. It was nice to have both rooms eat in the two meals. Thank you for taking care of yourself.

Read more 子どもがいてうるさくないか非常に心配でしたが、スタッフの皆様が優しくしてくださり子どもも喜んでいました。 部屋食でゆっくりできたし、夕飯は非常に上品な豪華な食事でどれもおいしかったです。 お風呂も小さめでしたが、泊まれる人数が少なめなので混んでいることもなくゆったりできました。 朝食は若草山でお弁当をいただきましたが非常に贅沢な朝を迎えることができました。 また利用したいです。

I was very worried that my child was not noisy, but the staff were kind to me and the children were happy. Everything was delicious with a lavish meal, which was extremely elegant, because we could relax slowly with room meals. The bath was small, but the number of people who can stay is small, so we could relax without being crowded. We had lunch box at Wakakusa mountain for breakfast but we could have a very luxurious morning. I still want to use it.
