If you're looking to experience Japan in a traditional sense, this is the ryokan you want to experience it in. Be prepared for smaller rooms, sleeping on the tatami, small restrooms... but the hosts and the experience as a whole is worth every bit!!
What an amazingand authentic experience. The place was beautiful with such attention to detail. The staff really added to the experience with their impeccable service and friendly nature. Very close to Kyoto station and central to most tourist activities. We absolutely loved staying here.

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
