Staying at this ryokan made even the most luxurious hotels pale in comparison. Tomoko-san and her team delivers such incredibly friendly, warm, professional service which I find hard pressed to think of anywhere else that does it as well.
The kaiseki dinner was spectacularly presented. Tomoko-san even offered explanations of each dish and some historical background. The effort that was put into each dish was obvious, almost too pretty to eat.
The room was very comfortable and pleasantly decorated, overlooking a peaceful stream. The futons were even more comfortable than any of the hotels we stayed on the trip, and the heated tatami mats kept the room cozy.
If we find ourselves in Kyoto again, we might just stay here for the entire duration!
