The Ryokan is only 20 minutes by train from Kyoto station. From the moment we checked in, we were treated with warm hospitality and escorted to and given a tour of our room. We stayed in a room with a private onsen, and this was very good. There were also numerous snacks provided in the room. Each room was assigned... More

From the moment we checked in the experience started, green tea and cake in our room, dinner we had our own private room and breakfast as well. Dinner and breakfast were incredible experiences in themselves. Make sure you include food when booking. We used the private onsen which was only $20AU for an hour and nice to share the expierence...

This hotel definitely needs more reviews, so we are happy to add ours. In mid-September, my wife and I stayed at the Yumotokan ryokan in their top-of-the-line suite, Akane no Ma. This was our first time in a ryokan, so we really didn't know what to expect. The Akane no Ma is their largest suite and it pretty much takes... More

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

A very relaxing and short stay at this onsen ryokan in a quiet neighborhood by Biwa Lake. The food was very good, but the choices different spas facilities of both indoor and outdoor spas available at the same time is just amazing (I believe there are at least eight.)

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
