comfortable and well-organised detail. A very good place to stay and relax, the staffs are just like friends and willing to provide kind services. The charge is quite affordable and we even stayed one more night due to amazement.

It's situated inside a park behind the Yasaka shrine. It's a very traditional Japanese Inn in which you may experience making your own bedding on tatami and taking a shower and or bath in a shared bathroom. It's shared but you won't use it at the same time with any strangers. The bathroom is big with two shower sets and... More

This little inn locates in the maruyamacho park, around 8 minutes walk from the yasaka shrine and 10 minutes from the gion station. You can experience traditional tatami sleep-in, make your own futon bedding. Very elegant and simple breakfast. Not the most convenient location-wise, but a really great option for those who want to enjoy a unique Kyoto experience. Bring... More

This traditional Japanese inn has one of the most beautiful locations of any place I've ever stayed--set high into the park in Kyoto, it's a very scenic 5-10 minute walk to Gion and a few steps away from Chion-in. I can't say enough about the fabulous location. The traditional rooms are lovely, and the staff are amazingly friendly. The bathrooms... More

Yes, a beautiful place, great accommodation in a very peaceful spot, at the back of Maruyama park. Just a 15 min walk through a beautiful park to the main street and buses or just walk left or right to amazing Kyoto.Staff where very helpful and the place just had a very nice, laid back feel to it.

Stayed here for three nights with two couples. Rooms are very comfortable. We hade one room without a bathroom but with a garden view which was nice. The other room had a bathroom. The shared bathrooms are very big and always clean. The best thing about this place is the common areas. Nice big room with lounges looking out over... More

Amazing ryokan, super friendly and helpfull staff. Quite difficult to find but as soon as you are there you are transported to another time but just 8 min by foot from busy Gion. It is so quite, in the morning you get woken up by gbe sound of the Gong of the nearby temple and the birds.

The first time I came was almost the same time last year. I was accompanying a friend who had stayed here at least five times prior. As promised, it was a great experience and the same was true of this stay as well. For what it is, it can't be beat. It sits inside Maruyama park at pretty much the... More

We stayed at Yoshimizu for two nights during our Japan trip. Once the taxi driver had found the place (make sure to bring address, map and phone number just in case) we ended up in a beautiful little house in a very green, close-to-nature setting where we were warmly welcomed by the friendly staff even though it was way before...

I echo the comments of the previous posts. This inn is hidden in a wonderful location and is a most comfortable, though not luxurious inn. I was lucky to chance upon the cherry blossom celebrations in the park and nearby streets and it was quite special. I also walked in the park before breakfast and it is really a wonderful... More
