Stay in a ryokan

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 13, 2006

We arranged to stay at this Ryokan when we arrived at Kanazawa station at the tourist office. This was to be our first attempt at experiencing staying in a Japanese hotel/ryokan. We had to take off our shoes to enter our room which was 8 tatami with a broad shelf under shoji windows, a TV and cupboards containing bedding and towels.The toilet and bathroom were down the passageway.We were given a welcoming "cup" of Japanese tea but breakfast was not included.In terms of location the ryokan was very close to the main street and restaurants and we walked to Kenroku-en Gradens and Kanazawa Castle.
Cost Y9,000 for 2 persons.

Unique Quality: In terms of Ryokans the Murataya is fairly basic but it is reasonably cheap and in terms of the "Japanese experience" OK.

Directions: 12 minutes bus ride from JR Kanazawa station. Take a bus to depart from bus stop No 7,8 from Kanazawa station to Katamachi bus stop then 3 minutes walk to Ryokan. 10 minutes by taxi.
