Yamamotoya was our only ryokan experience in Japan and it exceeded all our expectations.
I booked directly with the hotel about 5 months before our travel date. No complaints; everything went smoothly and I received very fast responses to any emails I sent. I recommend...More
The service, the amenities, the location, and the food were absolutely amazing! There was also a small craft beer bar in the lobby which was nice for a nightcap. We unfortunately could only stay a night but if we ever find ourselves visiting Kinosaki again...More
