    Traditional. Clean. Great experience.

    Traditional. Clean. Great experience. The staff was extremely nice. The massage therapist - only had the female, was amazing and enjoyed the late night hours of the massage to accommodate travelers with a full day. Not close but not too far from transportation/food/shopping. Location appeared to be in a residential part of town so we had to venture out. We utilized the washing and dryer - you may need to hang items even after dryer as it doesn't work the best. But very convenient when traveling!

    This is a great affordable ryokan in Kyoto. There is a bus about 5 min walk that will take you into the city in about 20 mins directly. We arrived a little early and they were very accommodating and let us into the room after they were done cleaning it which I appreciated very much.

    We enjoyed staying at this ryokan as we wanted to live the traditional Japanese style hotel. The hotel was very clean, in a good location, and with a big onsen (public bath) right in the facility. By staying here you score two key experiences at once.

    We stayed here for one night and found it to be a pleasant and relaxing experience. Our room was a comfortable mix of the contemporary and traditional, with high-quality floor bedding and tatami as well as a TV and modern bathroom amenities. The baths were not too crowded, and the open air baths on the second floor were particularly refreshing. We also enjoyed kaiseki at the restaurant and the hospitality of the staff.

    Not worth the price.

    Room was large and spacious. Quite clean. Onsen was OK, expected somewhat better facilities. I feel it was higher priced than should be.

    周りに手軽な飲食店が少ないが探せば…。 館内の「花車」も良いですが、散歩がてら周囲の街並みを堪能しました。
