This was my second stay at Yamatoya Honten and I love it. They have 24 hour lobby with no curfew which is great if you're planning on partying around Dotonburi and Namba. The staff are courteous and helpful and many speak English. There's internet in the lobby and a huge shared bath. Easy to find on the edge of Dotonburi and 5 mins walk from either Namba or Nipponbashi stations. A++ for the price around $75 a night per person with cheaper rates for longer stays.

(Pretty Teacher took quite a liking to Carl!) We then took them out for our favorite Korean BBQ! The next morning, Christmas Eve, they came up to the school with us to experience the hecticness of an all day Kindergarten Christmas Party! After school, us four along with the usual, Courtney and Leah, all head ...
