We treated ourselves to this ryokan to experience a historic building in comfort and were delighted by our stay. We were upgraded to a beautiful, large room full of authentic features and looking onto the gorgeous garden. The hosts were very welcoming, all facilities were spotless and we enjoyed the Japanese bath and sumptuous breakfast.

I am very happy that I decided to stay at this Ryokan. Located rather in a hidden yet central location, I could really relax after traveling through Kyoto using the public transportation systems located very close to the Ryokan. After coming back from my day trips, I was greeted by the friendly Ryokan owner who took very good care of me and made sure everything was perfect for my stay. While the weather was not great for most of the time during my stay, the rainy scenery in the backyard created a very calming ambiance and I felt extremely relaxed in this atmosphere. It was exactly what I needed. The rooms were beautiful and very clean. As this is an old property and used to be a regular home, the rooms are all different and each has it’s own charm. If I get to visit Kyoto again, I would be happy if I could discover another one of their rooms.

Amazing room and breakfast make sure to get the traditional Japanese bath room as well!!! But me and my gf didn’t realise we didn’t pay for it when we booked it through booking.com so some of our budget got eaten into but oh well. Overall was awesome!!

We stayed for 3 nights, wished it was longer. Everything was just great! The room, food, service, people, overall atmosphere, and proximity to central Kyoto. We were able to walk to sights or public transportation.

Lovely ryokan for a traditional experience. We were travelling as a family of four (16 and 13 year olds). The building and grounds are beautiful while the rooms are really special with tatami mats and decorated with care. The cedar bath was relaxing after lots of sight seeing. The breakfasts were spectacular with local and seasonal ingredients - a highlight of our trip. Location is very central.

Thank you for staying our hotel and your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed traditional Japanese atmosphere. We think not only atmosphere of bath but also the smell of ceder bath makes you feel relax. If you visit Kyoto in different seasons, you can enjoy seasonal breakfast again! Kyoto is worth to visit many times. We wish we could see you again. Thank you!

I am almost afraid to write this review, because what if tourists like me flock to this spot and ruin what is currently an under the radar gem! But they deserve it, so here goes-- stay here!!! It's what a lot of other ryokans in Kyoto wish they were: Authentic, brimming with charm, and home to some of the greatest hospitality in Japan. I stayed here with my mom for three nights before Christmas, and we couldn't have been happier. Prepare for some work in communicating if no one in your party speaks Japanese, but it's worth any frustration that may cause, I promise!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Toshiharu. The location is great, far enough from the main road but with-in walking distance of some major attractions such as Nishiki Market and Gion. Toshiharu is a beautiful old style building with traditional Japanese gardens. The rooms are small yet comfortable. I had no problems sleeping or waking up from other guests. The shared baths/shower system worked well with you being allocated a time. The breakfast was very nice and gave me a chance to experience a traditional Japanese breakfast. The staff and owners are all very friendly and go out of their way to help your trip in Kyoto. It was a shame I could only stay for one night. I would definitely recommend a stay here and would stay again.

Thank you for your review and staying our hotel. We are so glad of you to enjoy staying our hotel. We hope you could get Japanese traditional atmosphere. Actually our sound proof is not enough because our building was built in 110 years ago, but it is a big relief, that you did not have any problem with that. Kyoto is an attractive city, so it is worth to visit again! We wish you would stay again! Thank you!
