Great location! Great food! Great people! Great!

Amazing stay at this lovely ryokan. The staff were welcoming and accommodating. I had a lovely, memorable, and relaxing experience here during my one-night stay. Thank you!

Disclaimer: My long time boyfriend proposed to me while we stayed in Arashiyama, so my experience may be a bit biased towards the positive and lovey-dovey. :) ---- First off, Arashiyama is a great, tourist-y little city that sits next to the gorgeous Oi River. It's a national historic site because of it's temples and other landmarks (bamboo forests, preserved villages, etc.). Arashiyama Benkei is located on the river and about a 30 minute walk from the Saga-Arashiyama station. My fiance and I decided to walk which was nice. We got to see the main drag of Arashiyama, with all its shops and restaurants. When we got to Benkei, we were about an hour early. Thankfully they let us check in and leave our luggages behind while we explored the city and waited for our room to be prepared. We returned to see our room and the super friendly staff led us to our accommodations. We splurged and got the larger tatami room, with private bath. It was worth every penny! The room itself was very spacious and the staff set up our futons every night for us. The private bath had a rooftop view of the surrounding neighborhood and the nearby mountain (where the monkey park is). We actually never used the public baths because we just ended up using our private one instead. Also, we paid for the half-board (breakfast and dinner provided by Benkei). The dinners we had are easily the best meals we had during our trip. Dinners were served in room and breakfast was in a dining hall.
