I have just read twenty five glowing reviews of this place, and no one has bothered to mention that it is located one block away from the largest municipal incinerator in Kyoto. Of course the public incinerator is called "The Clean Center." That means about 500-1000 garbage trucks zoom in and out all day long. If this does not bother you, great.
For my money there are much greener and more pleasant locations in Kyoto. Sorry to burst anyone's bubble.
