Comfortable, convenient ryokan in Dotonburi
Posted Oct 31, 2016
Heading into Osaka from Himeji and planning some serious sightseeing and shopping on my last day in Japan, I headed to Kaneyoshi Ryokan to drop off my luggage two hours before the check-in time, since their website stated that they were willing to hold luggage for guests. To my surprise, I was immediately checked in and shown to my room (as was the couple before me and the gentleman who came in after). I was handed a packet consisting of both hotel and Osaka information (the latter of which I didn't need seeing that it was my last day there, but it was a very thoughtful gesture nonetheless), including the wifi password. As it turns out, unlike what the FAQ on their website says, their wifi was very much accessible in the guest room (or at least, in the room I got). And while they do not have non-smoking rooms, there was absolutely no sign or smell of tobacco in my room. Public baths in Japan are wonderful, but it was very nice to have a private bathroom and shower in the room as well. My stay at Kaneyoshi Ryokan was most pleasant, and I look forward to staying there again.
