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?
