Our first night in Japan was spent at the Kirinoya ryokan in Narita. The ryokan is very old and run by an elderly couple. The couple are very humble and welcoming. The elderly gentleman kindly picked us up from Narita station and drove us to the ryokan where his wife had our dinner waiting. Although some of the shared facilities,...

Amazing place (very good location, clean, well maintenance) and wonderful people. The ryokan was beautiful and the people there were very kind and helpful. I strongly recommend to taste their breakfast.

We stayed here for one night - with a flight out from Narita airport the next day. I wanted an authentic Japanese experience on my last night and so booked this in preference to a bland hotel. The place was a little more rustic than I had expected, and yes there is a strong smoke smell downstairs as the owner...

We booked this online, and they were happy to take our booking just over email without requiring credit card details, which was nice. We then called when we arrived at the train station and 5 minutes later the owner arrived in his van to take us to the ryokan. We were contemplating walking but were glad we didn’t – it...

This ryokan's charm is only out shone but its owner's spot on hospitality. The couple that runs the home are very welcoming and accommodating. He was even kind enough to give us a courtesy ride back to the train station before our departing flight. The home it's self is basic and quaint. The customary beds are quite comfortable, even for...

We stayed only one night in this ryokan because we had a flight from Narita Airport in the next morning. The ryokan is not very accessible by public transport and a taxi is quite expensive. But the owner is very friendly and helpful, so he took us to Narita Station with his private car. From Narita Station it is only...

As an experience of a traditional Japanese ryokan, this is a good place to try and great value for money. It is extremely convenient for Narita International Airport (9 minute train journey) and Narita town itself is well worth a visit. The owner and his son were very friendly and helpful and spoke enough English to make our stay straightforward....

For a two-day layover, we decided to try this ryokan rather than one of the rather nondescript alternatives in Narita town. We had never stayed in a ryokan before (or, for that matter, been to Japan), but we wanted an adventure and we got it. First, the positives: it's very close to Narita-san temple, the beautiful park behind the temple...

Quaint, charming, hospitable, genuine perfect experience! A wonderful Ryokan nestled in suburban Narita, a 3 minute walk from the temple. The host is a perfect gent as is all the staff. Great accommodations, very nice breakfast and a charming mini-museum of ancient Japanese authentic Samurai pieces. The young man explained that his great great grandfather was a Samurai and the...

We decided to book this place for 2 persons x 2 nights based on reviews on Tripadvisor. Positive Staying at an inn like this is a good way to understand how the locals stay when they travel. 90% of the occupants during our stay were locals – mostly people who worked in Narita. There were a few Japanese tourists who...

“Difficult to find as all street names are in Japanese. Call the owner from the JR or Kensei train station in Narita, he'd be happy to pick you up, or take a cab to figure out where it is.”

“For me alone the six tatami room was great. I stayed in room at the top of the stairs. Room eight looked better for a family with two rooms and a table. seriously though three people could have stayed in my room by Japanese standards. I felt very spoiled.”
