Not bad but worse than expected
A nice enough ryokan but it had terrible lighting and poor bathroom. These things could've been easily fixed... the night light was blinding in our room and definitely not good for winding down... you'd expect a lanturn of some kind but not here sadly. On the positive side, the staff were friendly enough and the Japanese breakfast was fantastic. They called us a cab and were happy to help nearly everything.

Excellent staff and accommodation. If you're looking for a retreat, this is the place. It's quiet, clean, and peaceful. Though not as accessible with public transportation, it's a special place that allows for a disconnect with the noise of the urban environment.

Authentic ryokan in a quiet part of Kyoto
It's a well kept ryokan in a quiet part of Kyoto that is excellent value for money. Rooms are well kept with comfortable bedding, air conditioning and wi-fi. Location wise, it's a little out of the way but we had no problem making our way around - a short taxi ride to several temples where you're then near the train line, and there's a JR bus stop right outside that will take you all the way to Kyoto station. We opted for the stay with breakfast/dinner each day and the food was excellent, authentic Japanese dishes for dinner and they catered to the coeliac in our group. Breakfast had an option of Japanese or Western style. The proprietor was very hospitable and spoke good English, so was able to assist us in our travel plans.

Unfortunate professionalism, lovely place
Unfortunately our lovely stay here (great accommodation, delicious food, kind staff) was turned bitter when we still have not gotten a refund for our overpayment, and its been almost two months since our stay. We have sent multiple emails, so are resorting to a review here to hopefully get a staff members attention. We paid online at booking.com in full before arrival, and then were asked to pay again in full upon arrival. Please, check your email Ryokan staff (from titusworldtravel@gmail.com), we appreciatively await your reply! Thank you!

Beautiful and Cozy
My best mate and I stayed during our holiday in Japan from November 23rd. During Autumn the ryokan looked absolutely stunning and beautiful, with the vibrant plants and the scenic mountain range. The main living quarters were what you’d expect and is comfortable.
