We booked this for 1 night after an absolute stunning onsen experience in Hakone. This was absolutely pathetic...staff didn't explain anything about the room and stay. The main old lady at reception who looked like som senior person was super stern like a school principle!...More
This was our first experience staying in a Ryokan and generally I’d recommend it, especially when in Kyoto. We only stayed 1 night which, is definitely enough. From various reviews I had read prior to booking this one I decided to spend the extra $$$...More
As other reviewers have stated, this is not a typical hotel experience. My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights while in Kyoto, and it was a really beautiful experience.
While in Japan we visited many different places and stayed in various upscale hotels,...More
If you are fully aware of what a Ryokan-style accomodation means, and really sure about it, then I'd definetely recommend Yuzuya. In my particular case, I still have mixed feelings about staying in any Ryokan.
I stayed for just 1 night and that's the maximmum...More
When I first got to Kyoto via the Shinkansen from Tokyo, it was actually pouring rain. Even from Gion-Shinjo station which is arguably the closest station, its a bit of a walk when it was raining that hard. By the time I got to Yasaka...More

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
