If you expect Ryokan style hospitality, they are not planned to offer that. One upside is a public bath reminds you onsen atmosphere. Breakfast is strictly served with good standard quality of ryokan but wouldn't amaze you either. If you pay more, you will get...More

Average hotel in a beautiful area. Room was fine, typical Japanese hotel, bed was very comfy. Loved the mattress. My number one pet peeve at hotels is a lack of good functioning wifi. This hotel has no dedicated wifi, however the city of Kyoto does,...More
A friend and I backpacked through Japan this past spring and used this hotel as a relaxing get away from the super busy cities in Japan. It is about a 10 minute walk from the Bamboo Forest and is easy to walk to from Arashiyama...More
Its a gem right at Arashiyama, at night you get to see the beautiful lights from the bridge and at day is so close by the main places you need to visit/eat at Arashiyama.

Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
