The man who runs the ryokan, Bungo san, is super helpful and very knowledge about most things in Kanazawa. He recommended restaurants as well as booking them for us, he rang and reserved tickets at shows and also booked taxis. Brilliant place to stay for an authentic Japanese experience. The room we had was beautiful and looked over a small...

The hospitality was wonderful, our host looked after us so well, the breakfasts are divine and the hot bath was great after a long day's walking and sightseeing, I loved this place, can't praise it highly enough

If you want a great, authentic Japanese Ryokan experience, this is the place. There was a traditional bath that could be reserved (no extra cost). Green tea always available in your room (again, no extra cost). The owners (Bungo and his mother) went out of their way to make sure our whole stay in Kanazawa was as enjoyable as possible....

This was one of our favourite accommodation in our three week stay in Japan. Handily located to well run family restaurants, the market, and short taxi ride from the station. There is a traditional store selling calligraphy brushes nearby. Also around the corner is a good therapeutic masseur, ask the ryokan to make your booking. The owner and his mother...

This is a lovely family run ryokan located within walking distance to major kanazawa sites. Bungo and his mother went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Bungo gave great dinner recommendations and was endlessly patient showing us how to get to places. Use of the ryokan bikes was also a great way to explore. A very comfortable...

We stayed in four ryokan, and a number of hotels, during our trip to Japan and this was our favourite. It is a simple ryokan, but very comfortable, good futons and pillows, and absolutely spotless. The bathrooms were large and available for morning showers also. Bungo was particularly helpful and kind. His list of restaurants, coffee shops and izakayas is...

Bungo and his mother are a great team in running the ryokan. Always friendly and hospitable..we very much enjoyed their company. Traditional Japanese breakfast on several mornings was much enjoyed. Travelled with my parents, aged in late 70s. They had a downstairs room looking out to a delightful garden with private bathroom and toilet. Both slept well on the futons,...

Most of the reviews about this ryokan are spot on. Yamamuro is a fairly basic Japanese style hotel very conveniently located within walking distance of the main attractions of Kanazawa. It is generally comfortable and a reasonable choice, but the simple rooms and facilities are certainly not the reason for my high rating. What sets the place apart is the...

Traditional Japanese ryokan (think tatami mats, futons, paper screen doors) in a great spot just 5 mins to the fresh food markets. It's clean & comfy, but the lovely & helpful staff are the best part. They really make u feel at home. You can use the bikes that the ryokan has, or hire some from just around the corner....
