My husband and I stayed here in mid-August, 2014, during the Obon Festival. We had already spent 6 days in Tokyo, and so we were ready for the slower pace of Kyoto. This ryokan was perfect for us. It's about a 10 minute walk to...More
We arrived a little early due to weather and the staff held out bags until the room was ready. The place feels very homey with welcoming and friendly staff. The rooms were an ok size and very clean. The washroom was nice and had a...More
We stayed here twice. Once in 2011 and again during sakura season 2012. I liked the traditional ryokan but my hubby liked the wester rooms more.
It's a very small b&b. I love their breakfast especially the fresh tomatoes and yummy spread. You can also...More
We spent a weekend at this ryokan in Kyoto during obon festival time. We are a family of four plus we had a relative with us for this weekend. She unexpectedly had to stay in the room with us (we thought we had a second...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
As far as we know, there is no constant desk service at night, though I think there's usually someone nearby. We were given a key to get in the front door after ?10 or 11 p.m. It is best you make arrangement with the host... More
As far as we know, there is no constant desk service at night, though I think there's usually someone nearby. We were given a key to get in the front door after ?10 or 11 p.m. It is best you make arrangement with the host as to when (even roughly) you plan to get in. They are very nice people to deal with.

My wife and I walked from Kyoto Station to the ryokan with luggage - big rolling suitcases. It wasn't too bad, and took maybe 15 to 20 minutes (we got a little lost). At the end of our stay, we took the bus to the station with our luggage. It was much quicker, of course - only a couple of stops. However, if the bus is crowded, it's difficult to get the luggage on. The main bus stop for the ryokan (Nishi Honganji) is about a minute's walk away. We didn't go to Gion during our stay in Kyoto, so I don't know about that.
