“Excellent Ryokan near to Kyoto station - a great Japanese experience”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

Friendly, with good English, and a mixture of foreign and Japanese guests. Breakfast is a bargain. A good 15 min walk to the station but really good bus links (they provide you with a map and you can even buy day tickets from reception, which I would recommend). The ryokan itself is just lovely - very tranquil and a good Japanese experience. While I was there they did an evening event with a free stew type meal that provided an opportunity to meet other guests, if you wanted to. Only LAN connections in the rooms but wifi on the ground floor.

We stayed in Sakura's Tea Ceremony room for 2 nights over New Years Eve and New Years Day. The hotel was easy to find, being just off the main street and in a quiet road. The bus stop is a few minutes walk away and the subway station Gojo is about a 10 minute walk.
Our room was large, comfortable and clean. The bed was a Japanese style futon which was suprisingly comfortable.
The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Thank you to the staff and hotel for inviting us to take part in the tradition of eating cold soba noodles on New Years Eve, they were delicious. We were also invited to try our hand at calligraphy on new years day in the hotel lobby, a nice touch.
Overall I'd recommend this hotel on the good service, location, value and room comfort.

A pochi minuti dalla stazione a piedi 1,5km circa e a pochi passi dalla fermata del bus e di un tempio questo ryokan offre la possibilità di vivere un'esperienza nelle tipiche case giapponesi.
si dorme sul tatami e l'atmosfera che si respire è quella tipica delle case giapponesi, kimono, cucina tipica e il quartiere che lo circonda sono diversi dalla modernità del centro di kyoto e rappresentano la tipica atmosfera residenziale giapponese
accoglienza ottima e simpatia da parte dello staff

Our short stay during the New Year was very relaxing. The staff was friendly and fun during the holiday season. We were escorted to our room, provided with area map/bus maps and received a brief tour. Our Japanese style room provided warmth and comfort where we were able to rest well. It was nice and quiet and staff was always available. Our checkout experience with the staff was very entertaining as we played with fighting spinning tops (Koma) and Japanese badminton (Hanetsuki). The location was perfect as we did not have much time in Kyoto and had a wonderful experience. Bicycle rental shop is just a short walk away which allowed us to explore the Kiyomizu Temple, Gion (Geisha district), and photograph the many temples on New Year's Day. Many restaurants were closed on New Year so the supermarkets located just a short walk away was helpful. The rate was pricey for the room size but this was during the holiday season. We did not want to leave so soon and would like to return for another visit.
