Minoo Sanso Kazenomori


This ryokan wouldn’t be luxury, but very cozy.  If you are looking for ryokans with hot springs in Osaka city, you should stay here.  Access to the property is very easy and it takes just 30min from Osaka Station.  Perhaps, if this is your first time staying at ryokans, I would recommend it.  The ambiance would be family-oriented, tranquil, and lively.  The property would be great for family, small groups, or couples.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room with a view of Osaka city in the annex.  The city view from the room in good weather is wonderful.  We enjoyed viewing a nightscape.  Also, there are 2 rooms with outdoor private baths in the annex.  They are not hot spring, though.  The room tends to be functional, user-friendly, and relaxed.  Facilities tend to be outdated, but well-maintained.  All of the amenities are taken care of including minimum toiletries, samue outfits, welcome sweets, and a Japanese tea set, etc.  Then this is child-friendly.  Strollers, chairs, and toilet seats for small kids are available for free if you request in advance.  Room service is not available.  There is a vending machine in-house.  There is no convenience store nearby.  You may want to buy your necessities before coming here.  Wifi reception was unstable in our room when we stayed in 2018.  Then the property is universal design.  A wheelchair is available for borrowing.  There is a private family man-made hot spring for wheelchair users in the building.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the entrance.  Then there are indoor and outdoor public man-made hot springs.  They are open from 5:30-9:00, 15:00-24:00.  Also, there are two private family outdoor man-made hot springs on 2F and B1.  You can soak in the baths while viewing an Osaka city.  You need to book them if you want to use them.  They cost JPY2,000 for 45min.  *If you have tattoos and want to use the public hot springs, use reserved private family ones.  Then the Japanese food experience was wonderful.  Breakfast is a buffet-style.  All meals are served in a restaurant.  The tables in the dining room are separated by dividers that provide a decent level of privacy.  *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 is no restaurant around here.  You may want to book a room including meals.  Then the staff tends to be very friendly, helpful, and warm.  You can experience signature Japanese hospitality during your stay.  Overall, the price range would be reasonable.  If you don’t have plenty of time to visit Onsen resorts, such as Arima Onsen, Kinosaki Onsen, or Hida Takayama, etc., you should stay at Minoo Sanso Kazenomori.  Then free shuttle service is available from Mino-o Station from 9:00-18:00.  It takes around 10min by car.  You need to book it in advance.  Then there are some nice sightseeing spots around the property.  If you arrive at the ryokan earlier, you should visit after you leave your baggage at the front desk.  At last, the property is popular among local people too.  If you want to chill out here in a tranquil atmosphere, you may want to stay on weekdays.  Also, you may want to avoid staying during Lunar New Year, late April to early May, mid-Aug, and the end of the year and New Year holiday.  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 or 16:00 / 10:00 or 11:00.  It depends on which room you stay in.  Check Availability and Pricing for the ryokan on Booking.com or Agoda
