    Antique without being fragile. This ryokan has a lot of history and Ms Uemura has kept this ryokan going for 65 years. This was not our first trip to Japan but out of all our stays so far, this one was our favourite! The feel of this ryokan takes you back in time and Ms Uemura’s warm smile creates a sense of home away from home. Not to mention the Japanese breakfast she made was out of this world! Overall, it was a perfect stay and the location was great too. The only downside was that we had to say goodbye! We would definitely and hope to come again.

    I can’t think of a thing I didn’t LOVE!! Perfect location within walking distance of the main street. So much around that area. The hostess was incredible...she made you feel like you were visiting family. Such a warm and comfortable place to come back to after a day of exploring an amazing city!

    I cannot think of a thing that needs improvement.

    I have been to Japan almost 10 times and this is by far one of the best ryokan I have stayed. It is situated in a historical, preserved street. While the accommodation is old and traditional, it offers enough amenities that help your stay comfortable. The room I stay has a partial view of pagoda and is very peaceful especially at night time. The host, Ms. Uemura, is very kind and she is a superb cook! The Japanese breakfast is just perfect. I will definitely return on my next visit to Kyoto.

    The most authentic Japanese experience with the most wonderful host - green tea on arrival and Japanese breakfast in the morning. A real highlight of my trip!
