My friend and I were looking for a place where we can enjoy the ryokan experience and Toshiharu gave us just that! Firstly, the service was just impeccable, from her warm smile to welcome us back from the cold streets outside to the prompt hot tea and sweets as we drop our weary bodies down in our room. She then... More

We stayed at the Ryokan for one night and enjoyed a lovely little and traditional Japanese house.we were welcomed by the warn and lovely owners of the place. We left ours shoes outside, as needed and got a nice Japanese sandals to walk with while in the house. For those who don't use to it, it might be a bit... More

This place is just awesome and every detail is reaching perfection. The room opens on a beautiful little inner japanese garden. The family running the ryokan was extremely attentive and helpful. In addition, the breakfast was excellent. Would stay there again with no doubt.

This was our first ryokan experience in Japan and we couldn't ask for more. We spent 3 nights at this ryokan and didn't want to leave at the very end. Our room was in the back area so it felt pretty quiet each night. We had easy access to the shared bathrooms on both levels. The room was large enough... More

There is a certain level of apprehension when you book nights at a ryokan, a place more expensive than most hotel options in Kyoto, and promising a traditional experience. You fear you may be entering a Medieval Times-type experience. Fear not. This is a beautiful and simple ryokan with a pleasant and accommodating hostess and comfortable quarters. It is easily...

First of all, the owners could not be kinder or friendlier. Greeted with tea and homemade sweets. The room in this 100 year-old home was really amazingly beautiful. Bath, toilet, sinks outside the room, but this was not a problem. Highly recommended.

Stayed 3 nights with my boyfriend. We were greeted by the owner and her daughter when we arrived, with tea and sweets. Very warm smiles and explanation about the history of the ryokan, it has more than 100 years history run by the same family. Ryokan with traditional kyoto style interior, our room was not big but linked to a... More

About our 6th trip to Japan and we always wanted to try a Ryokan so this time with 3 nights in Kyoto we picked Toshiharu and were not disappointed. Run by a lovely Japanese lady with minimal English but able to communicate effectively. The room we had was surprisingly large, with an ante room and table with our robes and... More

It's a cozy traditional ryokan with lovely garden near Gojo station. Room is lovely. We didn't order breakfasts, so can't comment on that. As it's an old traditional ryokan, so the washing basins and bathrooms are outside of the room and you walk there through the terrace. It's fine, but in January it may get just a tad cold, especially... More

Highly recommended for a Kyoto experience in a traditional house that is centrally located. The hosts are extremely friendly and welcome you at the entrance and also in the room with a ice cold tea and mochi. We had a twin room that was large and comfortable with a separate sitting and balcony overlooking the garden. The ryokan is very... More
