We arrive in the evening and the night counterstaff has limited English capability but he was very helpful. The directions to the ryokan was vague at best and being in a sidestreet make it dfficult to find. So, you must come up from the right exit and it is really 5 minutes walk. The room is big and clean - love the smell of the tatami. The breakfast (we had both Western and Japanese) and they were great! The public bath was nice too. The receptionist were all very helpful. In the daytime, and once you got your orientation, the location could not be better especially going to Hijo Castle, Ryoanji and the Golden Pavilion. It is also close to Shinpukun and Daimaru.
