1. Re: Looking For Cheap Ryokan @ Kyoto

We stayed in the Yamazaki Ryokan - http://www.ryokan-yamazaki.co.jp/ - when we visited Kyoto last autumn. Although it was a bit of a bus journey from the centre (about 10 minutes I think) it was easy to find, thanks to their clear website instructions, and a really quiet, pleasant place to stay.

It belongs to the Japanese Inn Group (http://www.jpinn.com/) which is usually the seal of quality anyway, but the Yamazaki was a cut above for four reasons. The rooms were lovely; modern and very traditional at the same time, the food was excellent (they run their own sashimi restuarant downstairs), the owners were friendly and lovely and the view of the garden was really fantastic - try and get a room overlooking it if you can, and avoid one beside the car-park for goodness sake!

Have a good trip!
