This Ryokan was fantastic. The staff serving us were very polite and helpful, and they took great care of our room while changing out futons. The rooms are both beautiful and perfectly clean. The location is within walking distance of Gion district and some of the most popular sights and shops in Kyoto. The traditional breakfasts are perfect for anybody looking for authentic Japanese cuisine, just make sure to purchase them in advance. I would highly recommend this place for anybody interested in staying at a traditional Ryokan!

No communication from hotel about dinner reservati
How to ruin your stay in Japanese traditional hotel? Tell you guest at check in that kaiseki dinner must be booked one week beforehand. No emails or prior communication. Just complete disappointment when you arrive. Kaiseki dinner was the reason why we choose that hotel, otherwise we would stay somewhere else. Same for breakfast - they require 3 day notice for booking.

The staff is fantastic and the property is very pleasant. If you stay, be sure to include the breakfast experience, which we loved. The property is located near both the Hokan-ji Pagoda in Gion, as well as Gionmachi Minamigawa's lovely narrow streets full of restaurants and bars.
