A unique ryokan, very handy for the Gion subway stop. The ryokan itself is a rickety old place - a protected wooden building. As you walk around the place the floors creak but apart from that it is on a quiet street and you have the peaceful garden to look out on. The rooms all share communal sinks, showers and baths. The baths are the usual set up of showers with stools where you can give yourself a good clean before sinking into the clean waters for a good soak. We had the breakfast in the morning which was fine but not haute cuisine. The location of the place in the city is good, you are near the old temples (just a couple of minutes walk), very near the subway and in the evening you are just 5 minutes walk from the many restaurants and food stalls. All in all this is not a luxury stay but if you are looking for something unique, good value and well-located then stay here. We booked through the Welcome Inn website which was very straightforward - http://www.itcj.jp/eng/index.php.
