Stayed one night here and it was very good. We had included in our stay traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast. Food was really good and varied. The staff are excellent and even drove us to the train station when we left as we were struggling with luggage in the rain. The bathroom and toilets are shared between guests but we... More

If you are not fuzzy about having your own bathroom and want a traditional, Japanese ryokan (traditional guest house) in a central location, then this is a great option. We found the place spotlessly clean and with Japanese standards of hygiene you have one set of slippers for your room and one for the bathroom... Takigawa is a short walk... More

Booking on short notice during cherry blossom season, we came across this property in search for a budget ryokan and lived up to expectations. It provided a glimpse into traditional Japanese lodging, from the Japanese-style toilets to the public baths used for showering. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, even offering us the option of using their laundry. Curfew... More

A room that dirty and old, without toilet should never cost 10,000 JPY, especially without breakfast. My room was not very clean, very run-down, which I did not expect. It did not have the toilet, which I knew and expected, but it is did not have even wash basin. Bedding and towels were crisp, but old tatami was not. Airconditioner... More

This Ryokan is located centrally in Kyoto just a short walk back to the Kyoto JR station. Its a little tricky to find in a back street so ask for directions. Rooms are very traditional and authentic. Futons are a little thin but other than that its clean and friendly. The baths are excellent and a must after a long... More

If you are looking for a cheap but authentic Japanese Guest house in Kyoto look no further. 10 minutes from the main station. The room was so lovely & spotlessly clean. The addition of kimonos and tea sets made for a great photo shoot. Excellent facilities, free toiletries & hair dryer etc. The traditional Japanese baths are a big daunting... More

Beautiful traditional Japanese ryokan, with full confort (hair drier, soap, shampoo, yukata, slippers, and free laundry!) in central Kyoto (5 minute walk off Kyoto central train station). The lady owner, even if not speaking English, is extremely helpful and caring. Available to guests a marvellous Japanese-style hot bath for relaxing evening. If wishing to stay at a nice and very...

On our first trip to Japan my boyfriend and I thought that it would be a great experience to stay a few nights in a traditional 'Ryokan' (Japanese bath house with futon beds). The main highlights of staying in traditional Japanese accommodation is- the traditional Japanese breakfast served in a private room at a time of your choice & the... More

GOOD: Room service very good, nice bath area, good traditional style, 10 min walking from Kyoto station and 5 min to the closest bus and metro service. BAD: Staff speaks a very basic english and it is not very helpful if you ask some informations!attractions of cities not very close (all 10/15 min by bus or metro)!

We booked this accomodation because we wanted to visit an old fashioned ryokan. Ryokans are Japanese traditional guest houses with futon beds that are taken away (rolled together) in the morning and made up for you by the staff in the evening. Ryokans have baths, usually very clean and very hot .And so has Takigawa Ryokan. There are separat baths... More
