Had a great time at this traditional Japanese ryokan. Owner was very helpful and friendly, as was the cleaner during the few times we spoke. I was a bit worried about the noise levels with the thin paper windows, but with double-glazing and a mosquito screen in place, noise from the street was non-existent. Location couldn't have been any better: walk out the front door and within a matter of seconds you're on the main street leading to Kyiomizu, aside from Gion Corner, probably the most attractive area of Kyoto. All in all, a great experience. Only slight downside was when a tour group of around 4 young women arrived and were stomping around till the early hours of the morning. They quickly moved on though, so can't complain. Great stay and would repeat again.

The location was fantastic - within a quiet and traditional neighborhood. A short walk to a very famous temple allowed you to take in all of the beautiful sights. It is an experience that can be enjoyed by all ages. The host was very kind and humble. She made our stay very enjoyable, along with helping us with directions and other sightseeing’s. The meals provided to us were very good, as the host was accommodating to our dietary restrictions. Additionally, the food was presented in a way that is very pleasing to the eyes.

This is a wonderful property with Japanese style rooms. We would wake up in the morning with a wonderful breakfast served in our room. Then shower downstairs, and head out for the day, when we would return, our room was refreshed and the futons all laid out for the night. We then took showers and relaxed in the ofuro bath. Customer service was excellent! Will highly recommend! One thing to note is that restaurants nearby close early around 17:00~18:00 in sync with the nearby Kiyomizu-dera temple. A walkable, albeit long, trip towards the city center is needed for a later dinner.
