Really friendly service here! Room was traditional ryokan (as shared toilet and onsen/shower). It is family athmosphere here. Maybe we did wrong choice not eating breakfasts here. The street is really quiet, and our car was parked just front of the house (space only for one car). But just 100m walking, and rhythm of the street is much more active.... More

--I was traveling with a friend for the summer in Japan. We were mostly in Tokyo for our trip because we had old classmates and family there, but we decided on a side trip to Kyoto as well. I'm not a huge fan of big city life, so I absolutely loves that Nashinoki was set away from most of the... More

Staying at the Nashinoki Inn was a wonderful experience for an affordable price. I looked up the inn's website on google prior to coming, which gives detailed instructions on the easiest way to get to the inn. (Otherwise may be hard to find - Takes about 10 min walking). The inn didn't have record of my reservation (done on booking.com),... More

Maybe my expectations of what a ryokan experience would be were just incorrect, but this did not meet my expectations. First, the web site gives the walking time from the closest subway station at 7 minutes. Maybe at a running pace with no bags, sure, but lugging suitcases, it's more like 20-30 minutes. Though, you do get to go down... More

This hotel is very clean and very fine with best breakfast. Is not about luxes, but is about experience. The owner (perfect old lady with good english) can recommend to you many possibilities in Kyoto. She was always helpful and it was really good place. Ryokan have small onsen and bikes are for free. Hotel is located next to Imperial... More

I am writing this from the Inn itself, at the end of my week-long stay. I am a female solo traveler attending a conference in town. I can only replicate other people's comments: the owner, who has been in charge of the Inn for 40 years, is adorable and very caring (she had fresh cherries waiting for me every evening),... More

Stayed at Nashinoki Inn last October for three nights; a fine experience. Cozy and clean. Bicycles were available to use for free and were handy in seeing sights. Japanese breakfast was not cheap but well worth the price. If you appreciate a quiet location a bit off the tourist areas, the breakfast and the bicycles, would recommend definitely. TM, Finland

I was having a terrible time trying to find a reasonable priced ryokan in Kyoto in late March, and after emailing 26 different places, the Nashinoki got back to me! It's run by an older couple who don't speak much English, but we were able to get by. The ryokan is nothing fancy, but clean and serviceable, and the price... More

We enjoyed our Spring stay In Kyoto at the Nashinoki Inn. Quite easy to find from the directions supplied when booking. The delightful couple serve a wonderful Japanese breakfast in their sparkling clean establishment and the only problems likely to occur will be with your knees!!!! It's tatami mat and low tables and chairs! A wonderful experience. Not a lot... More

We stayed here in April on a one day trip to Kyoto and were very happy. It is a 10 minute walk from the train station, but the lodgings were nice and very clean, and the innkeepers were very kind. We really enjoyed the breakfast and would definitely stay here again.
