    Beautiful location in a protected forest in Nara”

    Everything was great until we needed to get a cab. You would think that the manager would have known that it would take over 40 minutes for the cab to arrive...missing our train...not the end of the world...but highly annoying ;-).

    Perfect to enjoy Nara and its nature in full swing. ”

    Room was spacious and has separate living room area and sleeping area, surrounded by corridors of our own. When I open door to corridor, we can enjoy panoramic view inside of the forest, which was amazingly refreshing. The most fabulous part was their Kaiseki dinner. We were delighted by their beautiful presentations and perfect balance between all dishes of 10 courses. We've had so many Kaiseki in ryocans and other famous restaurants, but this can be one of our favorite.. We enjoyed private hot tub under pre reservation, and this was also delightful and private time to enjoy our family bath together. Everything was perfect and smooth under staffs' high maintenance and service. I will definitely want to come again. Moreover this is just right inside of the park, so you can go down to famous attraction areas by walking. Strolling around forest is another killing point in this ryocan. 11 out of 10 I want to say..

    Stunning!”

    Although there were little reviews on Tsukihitei, we were not sure what to expect. It was tricky to find on foot but once we got there, we were warmly welcomed to this establishment on the edge of the forest. It was stunning. The hostess was fantastic and the dinner (you must have if you stay there) was incredible- Compliments to the chef! They made a kids meal (more than enough for out little man) and a private bath for the adults after dinner (you can choose which order). Essentially our needs were looked after, but completely left alone. Didn't see other guests, and awoke to the waterfall running nearby in the lush forest. Magical, Japanese style and really a great experience. Highly recommended

Morgen- und Abendessen zu bestimmten Zeiten festgelegt (Man kann zwischen jeweils 3 Zeitpunkte auswählen), deshalb muss man darauf achten, am Abend, nicht zu spät zu kommen! Tagesausflüge halten sich damit in Grenzen. Aber dafür kriegt man lecker japanische Gerichte, sogar Shabu-Shabu!

    價格稍高一點,但一晚只接待三組客人的旅店,帶給我們獨特的感受。 晚餐相當精緻,擺盤別有巧思。口味上或許不能帶來太多驚奇,但仍舊有一定水準。 私人預約的湯屋相當舒適,千萬不要錯過了。 稍稍可惜的是隔天早晨的女中或因資歷尚淺,手腳有些魯莽。雖然也是相當客氣有禮,但與前晚優雅的體驗有所不同。算是能雞蛋裡挑骨頭的地方吧。
