“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

three people in one room staying over christmas for 4 nights. The ryokan is beautiful and immaculately laid out. The family who runs it were helpful and generous (pocket warmers for wintery kyoto!) and negotiated our bad japanese with great humour. Great location, easily walkable to other areas of interest, or subway is super close. Best was the breakfasts. They are more than the 1000 yen that was advertised (I think about 2200 each) but were not regretted when it was served - Fish, rice, miso, pickles, eggs and more- just amazing. The shared bathroom has a large and deep cedar bathtub which was the best cure for a long day walking. I cannot reccomend this Ryokan enough, it made an already fabulous journey to Kyoto even more memorable.

Room Tip: Three people were in the "Japanese-Style Triple Room ". Biggest room we had in Japan, and...

we intially had a lot of difficuties in finding the ryokan as there is no indication in english outside the ryokan that in fact the house is a ryokan but when we finally got there, the owners were most welcoming and went out of their way to make us feel welcome.
the room was lovely and comfortable. a very nice experience.ask the owner to advise you on where to go and have dinner. the owner took us to a place that had a set menu and this was the best meal we had in all of our time in Japan. absolutely superb. there would have been no way that we would have gone to that restaurant had we not been given the advise by the owner to go there for dinner.
