With a stay at Ryokan Kato - Yoshino in Yoshino, you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Mount Yoshino and Yoshimizu Shrine. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby and luggage storage. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: The location, beauty and quietness of the place, wonderful staff.
Pros: Traditional experience and lovely staff.
Pros: The inn is hugging high up the mountain side of Mount Yoshino . The views are simply stunning - ancient forests, ravines and the mountain ranges in the distance World heritage sites including temples and gardens are wonderful to visit The staff Ms Kato , Pedro ,Ikuyo and Naka were so uber gracious and helpful . They happily did everything to make us comfortable . The Japanese dinners at night were beautifully presented and were delicious .The sushi /The best I have ever eaten ! The Onsen - hot baths were like heaven on earth . It’s no wonder Norman / who we met at the Inn , a Tennessee born who resided in Japan for 27 years and is now a travel guide - only brings his visitors to this Inn in Yoshino!
Cons: Can’t think of anything !
Pros: It was amazing. Fab location, building and location was like something out of a fairytale! Staff lovely. I cannot praise it enough - my stay here is the highlight of my 2 month visit to Japan.
Cons: Nothing - it was amazing
Pros: The location is good for viewing the Sakura
Pros: The fireplace was very homey, comfortable and quiet. It’s a really relaxing place and we loved this space! This is such a great idea :) The staff were really trying their best to accommodate us, especially pedro. So thank you to him for all his efforts despite the language barrier. We really appreciate it!
Cons: The lobby area is quite depressing...and norah jones songs didnt help make it less sad and dry. I think instrumental music would be much better, relaxing and neutral. It feels weird hearing western music in a japanese “ryokan” and it makes it feel more inauthentic. Our room was ok, it had everything we need! Although in terms of how i felt staying there, it’s not really great...maybe it’s the design or the lighting or the view (of the nextdoor building’s wall) from our window...it just felt old and sad. i could imagine the wooden log rooms (after seeing the fireplace) must be nicer and maybe more welcoming/happier. Overall, it was a convenient stay but i just expected something more alive.
Pros: Very spacious room, two lovely onsen, absolutely exquisite food which included a wide variety of Japanese specialities (sashimi, tempura, Kobe beef etc), convenient location near the top of the cable car. The whole place was very stylish - traditional design with modern twists.
Cons: The pillows were a traditional style a bit like a bean bag, which we found a bit hard!
Pros: The breakfast (with a Western or Japanese option) was amazing. The onsite onsen was small but served the purpose wonderfully after hill walking.
Pros: Very impressive dinner, which was a traditional japanese dinner (which we really wanted to try out). Beautiful landscape around and many areas to explore. Unique, old shops in 1-5 min walking time, with humble storeowners and interesting handcrafted artifacts you can buy. Also, the personell was really good at showing us the area within the ryokan; for instance dinner area and other facilities. The onsen, or bathing area, was a truly unique experience.
Cons: We did not like walking with luggage all the way up the mountain. We should have called them and asked for a car or bus. Our fault
Pros: Friendly staff and excellent service
Cons: Check out timing is quite early at 10am
Dorogawa Onsen Koryokuen Saisei is located in Tenkawa and about 90 minutes by car from Shimoichiguchi Station, near Dokogawa Onsen and Ryusenji. LAN internet is available in each guest room. Yukata are available for guests to wear during their stay. Guests may borrow conveniences such as hair dryers at no additional charge (please inquire at the front desk for details). Facilities include a communal bath and an open-air bath. The hotel possesses 11 guest rooms.
Cons: Staff are very helpful and Mostly speak good English. Staff were very attentive and tried their best ti meet customers' needs. However, the room was quite small and particularly you almost need to squeeze yourself in the toilet.
Pros: It was so cold in the mountains that we saw snowing during the night and in the next morning! This was an extra bonus for our delightful stay! The hotel is very peaceful and quiet, well equipped to fight winter weather and with staff speaking reasonably good english! This Ryokan is absolutely gorgeous and a travel to Japan's royal middle ages! The food was so good - specially the white rice - that we had to ask for more rice! And we asked why the white rice and the food was specially delicious? The answer was: the water! The water was likely from the river and it was so pure that turned the food we ate ultimately difficult to describe! The Onsen is a bit small but it was good anyway. The view and the nature's purity in this village is absolutely astonishing! There is a free water fountain 15 minutes walking from the hotel up to the hill and is worth of drinking it because you can feel it is very pure.
Cons: We regret that we haven't booked for 2 nights but only one.
Pros: The food was traditional and amazing, the town was beautiful, but the best thing were the people, they were really kind and were always trying to make us as confortable as posible. I couldn't be happier, thanks to everyone working there for making my stay unforetable.
Cons: Everything was perfect.
Pros: The service was very pleasant. The Ryokan has a nice garden and a cozy and neat lobby. Kuzu-mochi they provided when we arrived was delicious!
Pros: The staff were very friendly, they made you feel like part of the family. We had a kotatsu in our room which I had been wanting to try for years. The food was incredible in quality and quantity.
Cons: Part of the room smelt like tobacco smoke - it is still common for people to smoke indoors in japan so this is understandable
Pros: The "traditional Japanese breakfast" was a wonderful way to start the day. It really allowed us to come into he day and some time to talk and plan. The two dinners were beyond expectations, we had the local menu the first night and the the Japanese Wagyu Beef Steak the second night, WOW! Adding in the location, Tenkawa, Nara and you can not do better.
Cons: I will add a caution, we drove from Nara and used the car's navigation system. It did not have the newest data, so we missed a turn and took a less than pleasant route to Tenkawa. We took the correct way out and it was not a difficult drive. So driving is OK, but I would have taken the bus and gotten time to look out the window on the way up
Pros: Even hotel staff didn't good in English but they're very polite and friendly, we're very appreciated with their service. Dinner set was very delicious and beautiful.
With a stay at Hounkan in Yoshino, you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Mount Yoshino and Yoshino-Kumano National Park. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, luggage storage, and a vending machine. Free self parking is available onsite.
Pros: Everything. The Onsen, the place over the mountains, the food, but beyond anything else, the people who work at the hotel, they were so kind!
Cons: Nothing to complain.
Pros: Everything was excellent: the attentive friendly staff, the beautiful rooms with lovely views, the Onsen etc. But the highlight was the food: superb banquets of delicious food with great presentation and service. I’d give it more than 10/10. A truly memorable experience.
Cons: No complaints. We found our single futons a bit thin, so they happily added a layer.
Pros: Amazing location, service and breakfast. We arrived 4 hours late by bicycle, wet and dirty (bad luck with weather), but they welcomed us to the nice, clean entrance, which we were afraid of soiling, and offered us Kuzumochi (local sweet) with hot Japanese tea nonetheless. Used the public bath outdoor late in the evening, and made some lasting memories.
Pros: As mentioned by others, what makes this hotel are the staff. They are second to none. The hotel location is quite secluded but well worth the effort to get to. Trains run very regularly to Yoshino Station from Osaka or Nara if you don’t have a car, so access is still quite easy. Once arriving at the station, we asked the station staff for help and they called the hotel who sent a car to pick us up in less than 15 mins. The walk up the hill with luggage is not recommended. They also arranged a booking, and drove us to, a local restaurant for dinner as we arrived a little late. The area around the hotel is great for walking and visiting the temples. The hotels Onsen is also an experience. The highlight of the hotel is the food though. Breakfast and dinner are something to remember.
Cons: The hotel is a little dated and bathrooms could use a renovation, but this is easy to overlook considering the staff and by using the Onsen. Yes wifi is not the best, but considering where you are, this is the last thing to worry about.
Pros: helpful staff lovely breakfast relaxing onsens quiet town,when we visited amazing temple down the road and great walks
Cons: Wi-Fi only in the foyer
Pros: Close to chikurin temple in naka senbon part of Mt Yoshino. Spectacular unobstructed view of the whole Naka Senbon (middle 1000 trees) part of Mt Yoshino... sakuras were just starting / in partial bloom when we were there last week of March. Staff were friendly and ver polite although they didn’t speak much English. The most beautiful part was their open air ’rotenburo’ onsen baths: they had a good shower area and indoor onsen tub, but also a few natural rock pools outdoors, which switches each day so you can try out both if you stay at least 1 night. The extra special treat was a few cherry blossom trees in full bloom literally overhung the rotenburo, with petals falling into the pool as I relaxed in the mild spring weather. Simply magical!! Also a super delicious Japanese breakfast was included in the room rate which I got on special on booking.com for ¥20,000 for 2 people - had grilled fish, tsukemono- pickled veggies, other side dishes etc. welcome tea and sweets served upon check in was a nice touch too.
Cons: - Walk up a steep slope/ flight of stairs from the last public shuttle bus stop (¥360 one way) that takes you from the Yoshino Station as no free shuttle service offered by hotel. Would’ve otherwise taken ~40 mins walk from/to Yoshino Station to hotel. - no wifi in room, only very slow wifi in common areas - not much options to eat dinner as most places close by 5pm but hotel at least told us to go to “Shizuka-tei” down the slope 5 mins away for affordable teishyoku (udon, rice etc), which was pretty good, instead it would’ve been ¥6,000 pp for dinner offered by this ryokan which we thought was a bit steep.

Pros: Friendly people everywhere. We planned to take the ropeway from Yoshino station however it is no longer in service. It is getting dark and we do not know what to do.

Too much good food. All their staff are very experienced and take care of us well.
Pros: Well situated to explore the Yoshinoyama; Very friendly and helpful staff; The benefit to enjoy the garden for free at times when there's no ticket required visitor; Pickup at Yoshino station can be arranged in advance.
