  • Nara > Nara ・Yamatokoriyama
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?

Read more 先日はお世話になりました。 私達の旅行は基本的に温泉目当てのことが多いのですが、今回は私が奈良に行きたくて泊まらせていただきました。他のところではベッドが2つあるところで3人泊まると1人はお布団のことが多いのですが、ベッドが3つ用意してあって気持ちよく休むことができました。接客も感じよく、料理も美味しく、お部屋の露天風呂も気持ち良かったです。 大浴場は流石に少し物足りなかったので申し訳ないですが評価を少し下げました。それと一番気になったのは、隣の部屋のテレビの音でした。私達の部屋の壁の裏側にテレビが置いてあったのか、自分たちの部屋のテレビと同じくらいの音量で隣の音が聞こえてきました。もちろん朝も早くから聞こえてきました。何か対策をされたほうが良いのではと思います。 観たいところがまわり切れなかったので、また機会があればよろしくお願いします。

You were very helpful the other day. Basically, our trips are mostly aimed at hot springs, but this time I wanted to go to Nara and stayed there. In other places, when there are two beds, one person will often have a futon when staying for three people, but there were three beds and I was able to rest comfortably. The service was pleasant, the food was delicious, and the outdoor bath in the room was also pleasant. I apologize that the public bath was a bit disappointing, but I lowered my rating a bit. What I was most worried about was the sound of the TV in the next room. I heard that there was a TV on the back of the wall of our room, and the next sound was heard at the same volume as the TV in our room. Of course it was heard early in the morning. I think it would be better to take some measures. Since the place I wanted to see did not go around, I would appreciate your favor if there is another opportunity.

Read more 子供づれで利用しました。卵アレルギーの娘の食事にも丁寧に対応下さり、とても豪華な食事に喜んでいました。湯上りの色浴衣や、翌日のお天気を気にして頂き、てるてる坊主を作って頂けたりと、細やかな気配りがとても嬉しかったです。 夕食も部屋でゆっくり出来ましたし、若草山でのピクニック朝食はとても清々しく、美味しいお弁当と温かいお味噌汁にいつも以上に食べてしまいました。奈良での宿泊は初めてでしたが、ぜひまたこちらを利用したいです。親子共々大満足です。 ありがとうございました!

It was used by children. She was also polite to respond to the egg allergy daughter's meal and was delighted with a very luxurious meal. I was very pleased with the careful attention I had to take care of the yukata color yukata and the weather on the next day, and to make a terel chef. I also had dinner slowly in my room, and the picnic breakfast on Mt. Wakasayama was very refreshing, and I ate more than usual for a delicious lunch and a hot miso soup. I have stayed in Nara for the first time, but I would like to use it again. Both parents and children are very happy. Thank you very much!
