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

We visited the Ryokan with our two children. As the Ryokan is quite far from the JR-Station, the free pick-up service by the Ryokan was highly appreciated. You just have to call them once you get to the station and they pick you up with their minivan. We stayed at the hillside part of the house and had a partial... More

Staffs were well well trained. They were all attentive and remember guest's face. I had a dinner at their restaurant without reservation, but they remember my face and I have an alergy for soba. They changed some soba dishes to another one. It was fantastic service. Breakfast was also wonderful. Negative side is facility. Though I'm a Japanese, this was... More

I think the hotel and Kaiseki are overrated. I found the food blant and of small portion. There's nothing special about the room, service and food . You are simply charged for the location, but nothing else!! In fact, the location is not exactly right, you have to cross the togetsu bridge which is always crowded (even more difficult if... More

Agree with the previous reviewer that this almost resembles a business hotel as opposed to an intimate ryokan. The ryokan is right at the end of the togetsutei bridge, and certain rooms accord great views of the bridge and the surrounding mountains/forestries. We opted for a kaiseki dinner which gave us immense pleasure, and the service was immaculate. We were... More

Was surprised and a little disappointed to discover this is more like a modern businessmen's hotel than your usual intimate ryokan. However, once we got over our initial shock, really enjoyed our 2 night stay. We were on the third floor in a large room and our outdoor terrace had a traditional garden with rocks and plants and an amazing... More

I stayed at togetsutei traditional ryokan for two nights with my husband, and it was a pleasent and relaxing experience. The area is beautiful with a river and mountain forests sceneries. I stayed at the least expensive room, though small it was very cozy and clean and included everything you might need. The ryokan staff was wonderfull, with outstanding traditional... More
