Nice host, great location!! Good choice for real japanese style ryokan experience

We stayed here recently for six days and it was wonderful. Our room was lovely and so comfortable to relax in after long hot days of temple hiking. The location is convenient for walking, busing, or train to pretty much anything you could dream of doing in Kyoto. Evening walks around the neighborhood were fantastic. The staff is wonderful and very kind. Plenty of English speakers on the staff, so they make it quite easy for clueless tourists like us. Even the staff members with less English do everything to make you feel at home and I didn’t ever find communication difficult. They seriously go all out for their guests. They really think of all the nice little things, like every night we came home to tea and sweets, which was wonderful to enjoy after a long bath (they have a large bath you can reserve but we preferred the small one in our room). The cooking was fantastic as well. I’m a vegan and gave them a card I printed from the internet explaining what I could and couldn’t eat. After a little back and forth with the cook (Can you have miso soup if we don’t put in the dashi? Yes. Do you eat tofu? Yes.) I was presented with the most amazing all vegetarian Japanese feast every morning. Those were some of the best meals I’ve had and I will be dreaming about those breakfasts! Just trust me that you will not regret staying here!
