I'm glad we did it! The Ryokan experience is not to be missed. The staff did a wonderful job of walking us through what do. The space is really pretty. You feel like you've entered into another time. Overall we enjoyed it and laughed a lot. My main complaint would be there is definitely a lack of privacy which was...

If you really want to unplug and unwind, stay here for a night. Yes, they have internet and there was a tv in the room if you really need it. From start to finish, we were taken care of like family. Our room attendant showed us around, explained how everything would work, then made us fresh tea. We relaxed and...

Me and my friend had stayed for two nights. from the moment we took off our shoes at the door we felt welcome. The building was very traditonal, just what we wanted. Check in was fast and very friendly. We got taken to our room where everything was explained and the extras we could have also all the tourist must...

This is one of the few ryokans to take bookings over the internet. Their level of English meant that our stay was comfortable and easy. The futons are comfy, and we were served hot towel and local snack plus green tea each day. We didn't brave the same sex open bathhouse, and opted not to eat at the ryokan. Would...

It was my first stay in the Ryokan and quite phenomenal experience. The traditional building seems very old and surrounded by bamboo walls. When we arrived the Ryokan, they assigned our dedicate staff. She was very friendly and always smiling (Some people might think that it is too much) and also keep make atmosphere lively. My wife quite good to...

Stayed at Seikoro while visiting Kyoto for two nights. I wasn't too sure what a Ryokan was to be honest, but my daughter wanted to try it so we did. Still for the price they charge, I felt they could have done something to make the rooms more comfortable. Part of the problem was that the rooms are fairly small,...

I am confused by the reviews left by other people — perhaps they don't know what to expect from a ryokan? First, what people describe as 'nagging' is better understood as traditional Japanese hospitality. Each room comes with an extraordinarily attentive maid whose job is to guide you through the phases of a stay in a traditional hotel, including tea,...

The hotel is a classic design with well appointed tatami rooms. The mats are in perfect shape, the room is beautiful, the garden outside is perfectly Japanese. What i love the most are the people here. Although their english are not so fluent but they are very helpful and hospitable. Would definitely be back if I was to travel to...

Persistent staff who wake you up and not flexible. Over price for the place The feeling is like staying in a house with nagging parents. They insisted us to sleep by 9pm. Dinner and breakfast is not worth the price .....

When I found out how much my husband paid for this accommodation booking I just about fell over. But I did look forward to spending 3 nights here to see what the big deal was. We spent several nights in Tokyo and then Hiroshima in Western style hotels so this was supposed to be a nice change. The staff were...
