Nagomi no Yado Kakujoro

If you plan to move between Osaka and Tokyo, I highly recommend staying at this property.  Why don’t you get off at Toyohashi Station on the way to Osaka or Tokyo?  Just 90min on the bullet train from Tokyo or Osaka Station.  Perhaps, you want to get much of an immersive Japanese ryokan experience, I really think you should stay here.  The ryokan is luxury, authentic, and charming.  We felt the luxury and authenticity at once.  Everything, such as architecture, furniture, and decorations, etc., is amazing.  The main building was built more than 100 years ago, but surprisingly well maintained.  Facilities tend to be the latest.  You can stay at the property without stress even if this is your first time staying at ryokans.  Once we arrived at the ryokan, we felt that I was being pulled into old-Japan.  The ambiance would be perfect if you want to feel nostalgic.  This property would be great for couples, groups, family, or solo travelers.  *A minimum age requirement of 6 applies.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room in the main or the new building.  Rooms in the main building tend to be quaint.  Rooms in the new building have nice balconies with traditional peaceful views.  On the other hand, if you are a light sleeper, I wouldn’t recommend booking a room in the main building as it has no latest soundproofing.  Actually my ear sometimes caught some noise when I was in the main building.  Then, the room is functional, user-friendly, and stylish.  This is a modern design expressing unique Japanese sensitivity.  Also, wifi reception was good.  The housekeeping was excellent.  All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, tea bags, a coffee machine, and a green tea set, etc.  You can request CD players and air cleaners.  Room service is not available.  Complimentary wine, beer, Japanese sake, coffee, and fruit juice is available at the lounge from 15:00-17:00.  You can relax with a beer in hand while viewing a beautiful courtyard.  There is a convenience store nearby.  Then there are nice indoor and outdoor communal baths in-house.  They are not hot springs, but they are used underground water.  They are open from 6:00-10:00, 15:00-24:00. *If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the communal bathing areas.  You should book rooms with outdoor private baths.  There is no private family bath in house.  Then the property is no universal design, but there is room for wheelchair users which is called “Kiri” in the main building.  The room has an outdoor bath.  Once you enter your room, you wouldn’t need to move around.  Then seafood kaiseki cuisine for dinner was wonderful.  If you love seafood, you should try it.  Then breakfast tends to be mediocre.  The portion tends to be average.  All meals are served in a dining area.  It seems that there is no private room.  Dinner starts from 18:00, 18:30, or 19:00.  You need to check-in by 20:00 if you have dinner on the property.  Breakfast starts from 8:30 or 9:00.  *Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  Then, as far as I know, there wouldn’t be nice restaurants near the property.  Most of the local papa-mama shops are closing early.  You may want to book a room with meals.  Then the staff tends to be not sophisticated.  The hardware would be perfect, but the software wouldn’t be the same class.  If you expect a 5 hotel star service, this is not.  Overall, the price range would be reasonable.  At last, a free shuttle service is available from Toyohashi Station at 14:15 and Mikawa-Tahara Station at 15:00.  It takes 75min from Toyohashi Station and 30min from Mikawa-Tahara Station.  Don’t miss the shuttle bus.  You need to book it in advance.   Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about the property from the below space.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  Check-in and out times 15:00/11:00  Check Availability and Pricing for the ryokan on Booking.com or Agoda
