The location of this ryokan is walking distance to the man JR Sapporo station, which is nice and the staff were nice. Otherwise, I didn't like it. The restaurant downstairs allows smoking, so it was very smoky on the first floor. I wanted to stay in at least one ryokan while we were in Japan to experience a more traditional...

The ryokan was a really great experience! All staff members were wonderful and really helpful when we needed a cab or any local recommendations. Our only complaint would be to have more options at breakfast. The traditional Japanese breakfast was nice, but the buffetruth was really small for the price. Overall, we would definitely stay here again! But we'd probably...

Located in Sapporo, about 15 mins walking from Sapporo station, its not so easy to find but you can just follow goggle maps slowly. I was there in mid of March and the weather is still cold and was snowing a little bit. So if you carry lots of luggage, you might want to consider take a cab from Sapporo...

After our trip from Tomamu, we continue to Sapporo. We booked this Nakamuraya ryokan via website. Reasonable price for this spacious traditional room with tatami floor. We slept on futons which were very nice. The first day we came, we were greeted warmly by the host, then one of the employee made us some ocha then served chocolate mochi. We...

My boyfriend and I booked this trip months in advance because accommodation books out quickly around this time of year. We chose Nakamuraya Japanese Inn because of its price and location in relation to the snow festival and Sapporo station. We also chose it because it had a hot spring for its guests to use. The staff were very friendly...

This was our first accommodation experience of Japan, deliberately chosen to allow us to see what a ryokan is like, whilst still being near the centre of a large, buzzy city. It was a delightful experience and we happily stayed in many more over a two-month driving tour of Japan, of all sizes and prices. Arriving in our rental car...

Only the friendliness and helpful staff save this from a one blob rating. My wife commented that it is a bit downmarket, she is quite correct. Its just all rather poor, cheap band b style reception, very pokey and tired bathroom, and the room is small, a little weary and frankly just a bit cheap. Communal bath is surprisingly good,...

This ryokan is delightful. The staff are very friendly, welcoming and eager to please. The ryokan itself mixes Japanese tradition with modern comfort. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, and the ryokan itself is located within easy walking distance of Sapporo railway station.

It was a very good decision to stay in this ryokan as the room was spacious and clean, the food was excellent, the staff were very friendly, helpful and able to speak English. It was winter but sleeping on futton mattress and tatami mat was comfortable, even for my 8 years old girl. Their clean and relaxing public bath (onsen)...

“Why go to Japan and not try a Japanese style room? It's fun.”

“If you are particular about 2nd-hand cigarette smoke (and the smoke really lingers), ask for a room as far away from the designated smoking room eg room number 201/301, 202/302, 203/303, etc. depending on which floor (the first number rep the floor). The smaller the number, the further away from the smoking room.”

“Try and get a south-facing room. It's great to see the sun light streaming into your room. The pillow is a typical bean-filled Japanese pillow. When you get used to this, it is actually works better than a western soft pillow, but you may want to bring your own (such as a Tempur travel pillow). This is obviously a personal thing. The slippers are also small for most western people, so you may want to BYO.”
