Kotono Yado Musashino  / Nara Nara・Ikaru・Tenri 1


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?

It was my second visit. Last time it was unfortunate rainy weather, but there is a gift of a shaven kid who is a son of an elementary school student, delicious food, and a beautiful hall where every corner is cleaned, the warm hospitality of the landlady and the staff are felt I was impressed. This time, I was reminded of the excitement, but I was impressed again with the polite hospitality. I noticed that there were many staff members who could keep smiling even when they were not facing the customer, such as raising and lowering futons and serving meals. My heart has become soft and warm. I would like to come back again. Thank you very much.

Read more 台風一過のお盆休みに家族三人で二泊させていただきました。なんと言っても施設のロケーションが最高でした。正面に若草山(鹿がたくさんいました)、旅館を出てすぐの階段を降りて、散歩気分で春日大社があります。奈良公園、東大寺、興福寺などなど徒歩圏内。あと特筆すべきは、提供されるお料理の数と質、二泊しましたが、夕飯はバラエティに富み、地産地消のものも多く、全てが美味しく、部屋で一品づつ出していただいたことも含めて大満足でした。朝食も十分満足で、二日目は目の前の若草山でハイキング気分で朝食をとれるようにお弁当が用意されました。少し暑かったので結局部屋で食べることにしたのですが、おにぎり、温かいお味噌などおいしかったです。お風呂は、部屋にもついていますが、大浴場もありました。温泉でなかったのは仕方ないところですが、気持ち良く入れました。私たちの部屋を主に担当してくださった女性のおもてなしも大変良いものでした。その他のスタッフの方々も人当たりが良く、歓迎されている感を強く感じました。トータルで大満足で、知人友人にもオススメしたい和風旅館です。

I stayed with my family for two nights during a typhoon. After all, the location of the facility was the best. In front of Mt. Wakakusa (there was a lot of deer), go down the stairs right after leaving the inn, and you will find Kasuga Taisha in the mood for a walk. Walking distance to Nara Park, Todaiji Temple, Kofukuji Temple and others. Also worth mentioning was the number and quality of the food offered, but we stayed for two nights. We were satisfied very much including. The breakfast was also satisfying enough, and on the second day, a lunch was prepared so that breakfast could be enjoyed in the mood of hiking in Mt. Wakakusa. I decided to eat it in the room after all because it was a little hot, but the rice balls and hot miso were delicious. There is a bath in the room, but there was a large public bath. It was inevitable that it wasn't a hot spring, but I put it in comfortably. The hospitality of the woman who was in charge of our room was also very good. The other staff members were also well-received and felt strongly welcomed. A Japanese-style ryokan that is totally satisfying and that I would like to recommend to acquaintance friends.
