We managed to find this wonderful ryokan in Kyoto through a helpful local as it was not listed on most of the websites i have been in. maybe that's also the reason that we were able to find rooms here while every rooms or beds in every other place is taken.
A family run business for many years, Yuhara- san (77 yrs old) and her son offer the building next to their family home to foreigners. its right next to a small river/canal lined with cherry trees, so you can expect a very spectacular view from the Ryokan during the Sakura season.
The rooms are huge and very very comfortable with futons on tatami mats. Green tea and cakes were being offered almost at all times from the family kitchen. Yuhara san also knows some of the best restaurants in her neighborhood and speaks english reasonably well. I have recommended this Ryokan to many of my friends and fellow travelers we met. and they all love it.
