Not knowing what to expect we booked this hotel. Central located in the old part of Kyoto the hotel is small and very intimate. We ate there for 2 dinners and had really good food. The breakfasts were great. The staff were very capable of...More
We did not stay here but had lunch. Our favorite dish of our entire 9 days in Japan was the Yuzu porridge. It was unlike anything we ever had. A rice porridge with fish, eggs and a yuzu squeezed into the center. A lovely 4...More
Great location to Gion. It's like a different world once you enter. Very traditional and cute place for a full experience of ryokan with wooden bath and elaborate breakfast. Both service and room met my expectation. Atmospheric place for Japanese culture. We had peaceful quiet...More
for someone travelling first time to Japan this Ryokan is certainly an option, but there are so many things which irritate even a seasoned traveller coming from a western culture.

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
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.
