We stayed four night there in end of January. The location is at Gion only minutes away from Yasaka shrine and directly opposite Chion-in. It is a convenience location to visit other attractions. Although it is beside the main road and may hear some vehicle passing by noise but it did not bother us. The tatami room was clean and... More

Stayed here for a night in Kyoto and was amazed by the level of help and friendliness of everyone working in this Ryokan. The rooms were very well equipped and comfortable and breakfast was very traditional and served with a smile. Best of all was Mr Masawaki who spent so much time giving us detailed information and history of the... More

We stayed (unfortunately) only one night at the riokan but it was a wonderful experience that I hope to repeat. The location is superbe, just at the begining of Gion, seconds away from the tea houses. The service was excellent, reception and other personnel very friendly and ready to help and guide. The breakfast is almost legendary, not only because... More

My wife and I stayed at the Gion Fukuzumi for two nights. We opted for one of their traditional rooms, which had no bed. Instead, the room was cleared of furniture and futons were placed on the floor each night. I have to admit the futons were not the most comfortable sleeping accommodation, but they were authentic, and we were... More

Loved the location. Service was wonderful. Very clean and comfortable. Friendly service. Try the traditional Japanese breakfast. The staff are really wonderful and friendly. We were fortunate to have a Japanese speaker with us. Do not know how much English was available.

The position of the Ryokan is very good. We stayed here (me and husband) with our 6 years old son. While the furniture seems not brand new it was all very clean. For a trip to Japan you have to try this experience, tea served in room by a Japanese lady on arrival and dinner served again in your room.... More

What a wonderful place to stay! The staff were very polite and helpful and went out of their way to make us feel welcomed. The food (dinner and breakfast) was excellent too. The room we had was clean and spacious by Japanese standards. The owner's wife even came up to our room to welcome and thank us for choosing to... More

Very Comfortable hotel (as with most Jap accom, small compared to western). We had a great time hear, lovely staff (even for Japaneses!! ) and in a great central location! You are smack in the middle of the historical area and are bound to see Geisha on the streets (early evening mostly). Close to major train stations and bus routes.... More

For first time visitors to Japan we wanted to experience a traditional ryokan specifically in the Gion district of Kyoto. Ryokan Gion Fukuzumi was the perfect place. At the very edge of the Geisha district near Higashiyama St and just steps away from the heart of old Gion with all its ancient narrow streets, canals, shops and best of all... More
