This ryokan was one of the highlights of my trip to Japan. Nestled next to a major Shinto shrine in the heart of the old section of Kyoto, it is a serene oasis . The rooms are really suites, the service not only impeccable, but charming and friendly, the food unbeatable. Others who I met there envied my stay and... More

I stayed 3 nights at the Royokan, and wish I had the time to stay 3 more! I booked one of the largest rooms, the 'Blue Room' which had a couple of separate areas - it felt like your own home! When I first arrived, they placed me in the wrong room, so I had a chance to see the... More

Wonderful Ryokan in Kyoto. Right next door to a great park for walking. Easy to miss entrance with steels steps that get slippery in the rain. Definitely eat at least one dinner at the ryokan- excellent authentic kaiseki meal. Its amazing how you can feel like you're in a secluded spot in the country while downtown Kyoto is just a... More

Probably the best hotel where we stayed during our 10-day trip to Japan. We spent our last night in Kioto at Yuzuya Ryokan and I can only say good things about it. The ryokan itself is beautiful (lovely waterfall and garden inside) and very quiet (it is literally next door to Yasaka Shrine but once inside the ryokan you can... More

We stayed here for one night. The ryokan is two storey and our room is located on the upper floor. Ryokan is located in Gion, 10-15min walk from subway station, it is more convenient to take buses to get around. Room interior is quite old and basic, the individual bathroom is new probably they recently renovated it. The female boss... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on whirlwind honeymoon through Asia. Was our first experience in a ryokan and enjoyed it immensely. Perfect location for seeing the sights of Kyoto (at the base of temple at the end of main tourist drag in Gion). Great service including tea served upon arrival and turn-down service at night (had no idea how to... More

I stayed here with my partner in October 2013. While a little difficult to find (its entry is tucked away) the location is fantastic. The reception area is beautiful. The staff were very attentative from our first arrival through to departure. Our rom was spacious with a lovely outlook over the waterfall garden. We loved the wooden bath in our... More

I visited around October 2011 One particular staff member has made my stay very enjoyable by being extremely helpful and informative. I had a very short time in Kyoto so I tried to cram many attractions in one day. I would never recommend anyone to stay outside of an expensive ryokan for the entire day because I learned the hard...

This was the 3rd ryokan we stayed in during a week in Kyoto and, of the three, it was in the best location - in the Gion District and next to Yasaka Shrine. However, it was the least "authentic" of the other ryokans and felt more like a hotel than the others we stayed in (Tawaraya and Yoshikawa). But the... More

Although this ryokan is right on Ginza- I almost missed it. The entrance is a wooden sliding door and just its sign. I recommend taking a picture of the sign on this website so as not to miss it. The room included a rollout bed and a sitting room with a tv separated by another more traditional sitting room with... More
