    A must stay if you're ever at Kyoto! I wouldn't want to stay at any other place if I could. Everything was perfect. The host is extremely helpful and kind. Will definitely recommend to others.

    Our host was just lovely, thoughtful, and considerate. The ryokan is comfortable and well located near Gion.

    One of the best places you can stay.

    What an awesome experience you will have here. Ok am I and her husband are so nice and helpful. Felt like part of the family. Whether it was laundry, calling a taxi, making a meal for us, it was all great. I can’t thank you enough for helping us out with the luggage forwarding and the bullet train schedule during the typhoon. We made it to Mt Fuji with your help. We will stay here again when in Kyoto.

    Wonderful stay and cultural experience

    I traveled with my 12 year old son. Our host was wonderful and took great care of us over 4 nights. Our host made us traditional Kyoto breakfast. The location can’t be beat. So many sites and restaurants are but a short walk. I highly recommend Kamari-An for families.

    The most wonderful experience!

    This was such a welcome reprieve after the hustle and bustle of Kyoto! Beautiful home, very organized and tidy:) Our hosts were exceptionally polite and kind, even helping us learn the local slang so that we could communicate like natives. I recommend this Ryokan for any first-time visitors to Japan, as well as tourists looking to relax after a long day. You arw in good hands here!

    Okami is the best host you'll ever have in your travel. Book this place already, it will be the best decision you've made on your trip. Her hospitality is 6 (out of 5) stars and she welcomes you to her ryokan like it is her home. She and her husband will take care of you. She is a perfectionist, and she always tries to accommodate 110% (even before we realized we need something). The ryokan is immaculate. Her breakfast is overwhelmingly delicious and really a steal for the attention to detail and time invested in preparing for the meal (you must order it in advance before arrival). Don't be scared about the shared bathrooms. There are 2 bathrooms and 2 showers for 3 rooms so you'll barely noticed other guests. This is exemplary of Japanese hospitality. Thank you for this wonderful and memorable experience.

    Amazing host who went above and beyond to give our family a real experience of Japanese hospitality. Lovely traditional room, lots of suggestions, and a fabulous couple of cooking sessions thrown in. Highly recommended.
