Wonderful welcome to this traditional Japanese inn. Made to feel completely at home. My first stay in a Ryokan and definately one to remember.
Rooms are massive but if you don't know, the bed is folded away in the morning! A fantastic traditional breakfast erred on tatami mats, really incredible!!
The baths in the basement were also amazing- a really memorable experience. Like all of Japan bathing is about relaxing and not cleaning! You will be expected to enter the bath naked and clean- the ritual of washing yourself on a tiny plastic stool takes some getting used to, but the experience is really worth it
Otherwise the staff in the hotel were incredibly helpful...I asked for train times back to Nagoya and got a hand written list in the morning when I left.
I will be back in Kyoto later in the year and will definately choose this place again.More
