It is a very reasonable priced accommodation option, given how popular Kyoto is with tourists, and how tight accommodations are. Despite airbnb more common in Japan, it is still rather difficult to navigate through a largely non-English speaking host list and websites. And for what you pay, the size of the room is big, the public bath spacious and clean,...

Located up in the mountains in Mount Hiei, I travelled there by bus (1 hour on bus 51 or 57 from Kyoto Bus Station, twice a day only, not available during winter season). For the return trip, they provided a free shuttle bus service (9am, 10.30am and 12pm) from temple to Otsukyo Station (30 minutes), which is 2 stations away...

The room was very...

We had a very relaxing stay for one night here and a great night's sleep. It 's a modern hotel block within the temple complex. Staff were very helpful and friendly - one of the receptionists later sought us out to provide more information she'd not given us at check in. Rooms were traditional Japanese style with tatami matting and...

“Rooms on the top floor overlooking the lake offer great views. They look East and you can enjoy a great dawn display, if you get up early!”
