A nice Ryokan on the outskirts of the city. Rooms are fairly spacious and you sleep on good futons. There is WiFi and air conditioning and a very nice garden. Food was nothing special, however. Altogether OK, but no restaurants nearby, only a convenience store.

Was abit tough to understand where to take the bus etc, maybe some attachment of picture of where to take the Bus would help people to understand i guess. Overall really love the ryokan, we get to stay 2 nights there with great view of the garden. I will come again definitely. But one great point must put into consideration,... More

My friend and I were keen on staying at a ryokan for atleast a few nights during our trip to Japan. Ryokan Yamazaki was great, in that it offers a traditional Japanese stay for a reasonable price. The rooms are alright - sparsely furnished - but liveable. I wasn't a big fan of the bathrooms being in a little outhouse,... More

We were touring Kyoto and my wife stayed at Ryokan Yamazaki for two nights. We made the mistake of following google map direction trying to get to the hotel. The direction given was way too far from the Ryokan, we only managed to check in at 2300 after walking for 45 mins. After getting lost a few times. Once we... More

We spent two nights here, and it was easily the nicest hotel/ryokan we stayed at during our trip in Japan. It is about 45 minutes by JR bus away from the Kyoto main station, but the atmosphere was so lovely. The buses thankfully announce each upcoming stop in Japanese and English, and the Ryokan's website provided good enough directions to... More

we were late arriving at the Ryokan. We found it in the dark. Once we had worked out how Japanese buses operate, we found them really good. We had thought it would be difficult to find our way, but the buses give destinations in English as well as Japanese. The 'grandma' at the ryokan made us welcome, even though we... More

Close to the best wifi we had. JR bus went straight back to the station which was handy Very good dinner in the restaurant There was hardly anybody there when we were there which made it even more tranquil than it would have otherwise been. I and my kids slept fine. My wife didn't have such a good time on... More

When I read some of the previous reviews I thought twice about giving this ryokan a chance. I'm sure glad I did! Mia and Du Fujishiro have found their calling in the hospitality business. Our room was large and accommodating with an ensuite bathroom and in room WiFi. Just outside our door was a desktop computer, printer, and a wide... More

we stay one night at this ryokan and l would have liked to stay more. All the staff were very nice and helpful and the room was nice and spacious. They got a nice restaurant with a nice view on the garden and the food is tasty and well priced. l will recommend this ryokan to anyone visiting Kyoto.
