Authentic ryokan in Arashiyama, a calm place in the tradicional city of Kyoto. Surrounded by woods and small temples and shrines, the place sends you 200 years ago at Japan. Amazing private onsens in some rooms, with an espectacular service, with high quality japanese traditional food. It seems very expensive... But it's cheap when you see this ryokan, the onsens,...

This was our only ryokan stay during a 2 week trip to Japan in Dec 2014. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The traditional meals were fantastic, and the staff all very helpful. We stayed 2 nights. The only quibble is that the baths are indoors, and not natural hot springs. Otherwise, it's a great place

The hotel is less than helpful in terms of shuttle service. When our party of 8 arrived at the taxi stand of the JR station, the cab drivers kindly advised us that we could request the hotel to send a shuttle van to pick us up. One driver even kindly called the hotel for us and communicated effectively. The van... More

I noticed this place when I was in Japan last time because of the excellent location and booked this one in purpose this time. However I think the hotel and Kaiseki are overrated. The food looked like being prepared long time ago - not fresh at all and the taste was very average - nothing surprised us at all. I... More

This ryokan is very friendly for foreigners to learn more about Japanese culture. There are 16 rooms, and I would recommend to book a room with a garden from the 3rd floor. The meals can be served in the room. Nine course kaiseki-dinners are unbelievably good (also shabu-shabu is avaliable) with a cute waitress making sure one gets the best... More

I stayed at Togetsutei for 2 nights with my husband and 15-month old daughter. We stayed at a 8-mat (tatami) room on the 2nd floor of the mountain side building. The room was decorated in traditional ryokan style, it was very clean and well appointed with a little balcony and ensuite toilet and bath. We had our breakfast and dinner... More

We were a group of two families (four adult and three children) traveling from Tokyo to Kyoto. We decided to booked our accommodation in Arashiyama area at Togetsutei. The room was the type two with private bathtub which was convenience for the children. The Japanese bed and yukata were comfortable and provided some taste of Japanese traditional style. The public... More

It was first trip to Japan for me and my mom. For first introduction to Japanese culture ryokan "Togetsutei" is really good choice. Despite of being quite costly, it's worthwhile every dollar! it's high class traditional Japanese experience. My friend, professional tour guide recommended me and we didn't regret. Starting from simple but stylish room (but in Japanese style -... More

We booked 2 rooms from Togetsutei. One of them is a luxurious room, 碧川阁 (红云客室)with an outdoor hotspring round bathtub. In the washroom, there is another a wooden bathtub available. Yukata (Japanese bath rode) was given to every room guest. The staff would offer a range of yukata for you to choose your favourite colour. Looking out from the balcony,... More

It's nice Ryokan if you want to feel the atmosphere of Kyoto. I chose this Ryokan for the sightseeing of Arashiyama, actually very good access to the bamboo road and my favorite place, Jikishian;it's quite far from there, but we could walk to. Around the Ryokan, there're a lot of stores and the places to see. The food we could... More
