Stayed there for Christmas eve 2012 with my wife and 2 teenagers. we were in Japan for 1 week and this was one of the most memorable experience of the trip. Wish we had stayed more than 1 night. Extremely well located in Gion in a very quiet street. Very authentic Ryokan. Staff is very attentive to make every aspect of the stay perfect. Limited english is spoken but it is fine. The authentic bath experience is fantastic. Highly recommend taking both Japanese dinners and breakfasts: unusual but delicious if you care for Japanese food. The four of us slept on Japanese style tatamis and futons: very comfortable. Toilets are rustic but very clean. Not every room has toilets. The entire place is very clean. Try to get a room with inside garden view: very beautiful and peaceful. Room for 4 are very comfortable (everyone sleeps side by side). It is not inexpensive but in my opinion well worth it. I had compared many other options and read many comments before choosing this one and I did not regret a bit of my choice. Enjoy it !
