“Nice place”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

My friends and I stayed there for 1 night, we were received by the owners who were very friendly, the room was more spacious than what we imagined and looked very traditional, the shared bathroom was clean and I absolutlely enjoyed the ofuro. We went on a really low season so we were the only guests that day.

Reviewed September 29, 2009

Having planned our trip to Kyoto in the middle of a National Holiday, we booked the Wajimaya in desperation. Our first night was at the clean, modern and friendly Matsubaya (across the street funny enough!). The rate was slightly less here and was the only double room we could find araound.
We checked-in late as we got got stuck in traffic in the heart of the city, and finally arrived at 8pm with our landlord waiting for us (not very friendly and difficult to communicate) thankfully my wife speaks Japanese and seemed to raise a smile from him. Its a much older style Ryokan them our previous nights stay and the room was rather tired! Large double with a run down feeling, and shared shower room/toilets. I guess if I had stayed here when I was younger on a backpacking trip, it would have been ok, but I wouldnt book again.
Checking out the next morning, we met the wife who was much more friendly. You need to be inside by 11pm (they will lock you out if late) and no meals, but you can leave your bags here. Seems popular with young Japanese students and Backpackers.
