It is more of a hotel than Ryokan, dinner was good, lots of onsen choices, private onsen is rather small though, should only fit 2-4 people, did not really go to the public onsen but they should be pretty good. Price is reasonable for a "Ryokan" hotel.

We stayed here for one night in a room with an open air bath. But there wasn't too much of a view as the wooden blinds/partitions blocked most of it. This of course prevented others seeing us bathing as well. The room size was average, but comfortable. There was only an outside shower on a timer next to the bath,... More

The outdoor spas are on 8th and 11th floors, with the... More

Yumotokan has to be the best onsen ryokan I've ever been to. First, location, only a half an hour from kyoto. Second, the onsen is VERY nice, you can watch sunrise from the rooftop onsen (depending on gender and dates rotation) and enjoy serenity in the dream like onsen on the fifth floor. Experience beyond imagination. Tatami rooms are nice... More
