Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

The hotel is a very easy 5 minute walk from Kyoto Station. I arrived at the hotel prior to the check-in time, they most apologetic about not being able to check me in, however, they made me very comfortable in the foyer and offered me complimentary tea and coffee. A short time later they had a room available and they checked me in. The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel public bath was also very good. Overall, this is a good value hotel with excellent staff, I cannot speak highly enough of all the staff who made my stay very enjoyable.

WiFi does not work in room and “hot” breakfast was cold but people are very friendly and it is clean. The bathroom felt a little like we were in a camping RV, but I couldn’t say if that is normal in Japan or not

Location:It is about a 7-10 min walk from tne Kyoto station. There is also a subway station (Kujo) and a busstop right outside the hotel. So the location is pretty decent. However, I would have preferred something closer to Kyoto station becaise we had bags to pull. Room:Extremely small. We were expecting small rooms because we were in Japan, but this was worse than expected. One entire side of the bed was stuck to the wall of the bathroom so it was difficult for one person to get in an out. There were very few electric plugs - and also near the tv - so essnetially, we had to boil water right near a whole bunch of electrical wires. Very very unsafe, There was no space to store clothes or the suitcases and also no safe to keep our valuables. Bedsheets didn't look too clean either. We had to push the chair against the window so we didn't even open the window during our stay. We were also not able to adjust the AC during our stay so it was quite uncomfortable every night Hotel Amenities: There was a laundry which we did not use. There was also an onsen.We bought the one day kyoto pass from the hotel reception. The hotel also served one free drink per person in the evening and had free tea/ coffee throughout the day Breakfast: We purchased the breakfast buffet as part of our room. It was pretty decent - we ate most of the western style food which had scrambled eggs, granola, cereal, fruits, fresh smoothies, muffins etc. It was all quite good. Overall, the amenities and the breakfast were the big positives, but they did not make up for the really bad room. I would prefer to stay another place closer to Kyoto stattion if I can , next tme.

We had three nights at the Sakura terrace and found our stay pleasant. The room was of average size, clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is an easy walk from Kyoto stations and the subway station is across the street. We did not eat at the hotel but the breakfast Buffett looked pretty good. My only criticism is the location of the smokers area which is right outside the main entry foyer. The smoke blows straight into the hotel when the doors open and detracts from your first impression to be met at the door by cigarette smokers. Overall a good central place to say when visiting Kyoto. Would stay again and recommend.
