This was our second ryokan experience in Japan and the priciest and worst. While the atmosphere was peaceful and quiet, our room certainly lacked amenities that are conducive to a traveler. The room was large and almost zen-like, though water-stained and deteriorating in parts. The bedding was comfortable. But the room lacked conveniences such as a hot-pot or a mini-fridge.... More

We stayed one night in this traditional ryokan, this was one of the many highlights of visiting Japan, quite magical! Very small and intimate but really just perfect in every way, it was everything and more than we expected. It is family run business and has been in existence for several generations. The owner and his mother were both so... More

We stayed here for one night and did not opt for dinner, so I can not speak to that. The breakfast in the morning was simple and tasty (we opted for the Japanese breakfast). The staff was very friendly, and the common areas of the ryokan were beautiful, albeit a little small, but this is Japan... After checking in, we... More

We stayed here for one night to enjoy the Ryokan experience; and how fabulous it was too! It is located a good 10-minute stroll up the way from Kyoto Railway Station, and was relatively easy to find.

The best food in kyoto can be found at this ryokan for breakfast and dinner - healthy Japanese food with lots of fish and vegetables. Beds were comfortable. Baths were so hot and relaxing. Owners are lovely Japanese family with history dating back to 175 years ( 7 generations).

The location of this ryokan is great, whether considering the Central Station, shopping, or some of the sights. The size of the city and the cost of a taxi ride makes this less relevant than in other cities anyway, unless you are on a tighter budget. The ambience is really nice. Traditional layout is mixed with beautiful modern furniture and... More
