First time staying in a ryokan and onsen. Room Suisen has a good view of the river of arashiyama and the togetsu bridge. Everything was wonderful, from onsen to Kaiseki dinner (dishes were exquisite!) the owners were very warm and personalized. Good location, wonderful experience...More
Stayed at this delightful, warm and friendly family managed Ryokan. It was a first time for me and my family to experience the warm hospitality with radiance smiles and traditional feel but unfortunately my stay is only one night. The food (both dinner and breakfast...More
My wife, who is Japanese, booked one night at this lovely Ryokan. It's a short walk from the train station. The setting in very nice, along the river and just over the bridge. Our room was lovely. My wife was concerned about me sleeping tatami-style,...More
From the JR Saga Arashiyama train station, the ryokan is about a 15-20 minute walk away, across the main bridge and a smaller one. You'll see it as you cross the bridge on the right, with the boats along the river. It is less than...More
After a chilly day strolling through the temples and gardens and taking pictures of people in their beautiful kimonos among the red Japanese maple trees, it felt wonderful to return in the evening to this ryokan and soak in the hot mineral bath. The baths...More
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.

The general onsens are sex-segregated. Unless you are a same-sex couple, it would be difficult. There are private onsens to be booked, but I don't recall doing that so I can't tell you if they allow mixed sexes... More
The general onsens are sex-segregated. Unless you are a same-sex couple, it would be difficult. There are private onsens to be booked, but I don't recall doing that so I can't tell you if they allow mixed sexes to use them privately. My impression is that they would not, as most onsens in Japan that I have been to are sex-segregated.
Sorry I can't be more help.
