The staff here is so nice and so helpful that it would be hard to find anyone more accommodating. And the public spaces are clean but not very comfortable - no soft chairs, no cozy places to crash for a few minutes. And the breakfast...More
We, a family of 5 (3 boys ages 10, 14 and 16), had a very pleasant stay (3 nights) at Sakura Honganji. The staff was really nice and gave us a warm welcome. They were happy to help for any guidance we had (they have...More
We had a wonderful stay in our western style room which was spacious and comfortable for two. It was a nice perk to have a kitchenette with a refrigerator.
We enjoyed breakfast at the inn, and tried both western and Japanese foods - all were...More
Great experience since the arrival: staff is very gentle and offered us a warm welcome. Decoration and cleanliness were big pluses of our stay! Breakfast offered (paid) is delicious and good value for money ! They offer laundry machine for guests for small amount of...More
The room was nicely designed with traditional Japanese style. Bed was comfortable enough to me as I am familiar with Asian-styled bed. Everything is so clean and well managed.
All the staff is friendly from the receptionists to the room attendant who put extra tea...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
As far as we know, there is no constant desk service at night, though I think there's usually someone nearby. We were given a key to get in the front door after ?10 or 11 p.m. It is best you make arrangement with the host... More
As far as we know, there is no constant desk service at night, though I think there's usually someone nearby. We were given a key to get in the front door after ?10 or 11 p.m. It is best you make arrangement with the host as to when (even roughly) you plan to get in. They are very nice people to deal with.

My wife and I walked from Kyoto Station to the ryokan with luggage - big rolling suitcases. It wasn't too bad, and took maybe 15 to 20 minutes (we got a little lost). At the end of our stay, we took the bus to the station with our luggage. It was much quicker, of course - only a couple of stops. However, if the bus is crowded, it's difficult to get the luggage on. The main bus stop for the ryokan (Nishi Honganji) is about a minute's walk away. We didn't go to Gion during our stay in Kyoto, so I don't know about that.
