Great place very close to the station. A bit pricy but confortable, clean. Staff is very friendly but there was a girl who was a bit snobby.

Thank you for your evaluation. We are happy that you liked our locational aspects. Concerning the staff spoken in your statement, we need to face this issue with serious, and keep our conscious up for brushing up our hospitality. We appreciate again for your stay and review. We hope to accommodate you again in our property.


Nagomi is pretty nice, even if it's not a real Ryokan. Rooms are lovely but very small. Rooms are definitely too noisy. Even if the receptionists (that are SUPER kind) always ask people to be quiet and respectful (especially at night and early morning) sometimes people just suck .... and use the hairdryer and laugh out loud at night like my neighbors did. It's a traditional kind of accommodation and walls are very thin.

We appreciate your comment. It left us a regret that we could not cope with the noise issue during your stay. It is true that we always ask every ones' respect for other guests in regards with the issue.(Written in our regulation and tell all guests to be cooperate with that.) We all wish to accommodate you with a higher standard and please feel free to ask us for any helps at next time. We are more than happy to sort those out for our guests. We hope the day comes in real soon.


A wonderful experience. The house was beautiful and the beds comfortable. There was even a wooden bathtub in the bathroom. I'm very glad I stayed here and would highly recommend others to do the same.

We very thank you for your rating. We are grateful that you favored our traditional features, and recommendation comment. We do not totally need to top up any explanations for your review. we simply wait for your next visit for us to welcome you.


Nice to sleep in a traditional Ryokan Inn and sleep on a tatami floor with Futon. I did however find it to be very noisy especially from fellow guests staying above. The room walls are very thin and you can practically hear everything, I guess that's the only draw back to staying in a traditional Ryokan.

We are quite happy that you enjoyed experiences in a traditional town house.As you mentioned as a downside, the walls are structured thin in those days, so it is easier to get a noise from others.We ask respects of our guests to the others, to keep quiet especially at night and in the morning during their stay.You are also welcome to ask us for help without any obstacles if the things happen.We wish you choose us again for your next opportunity to visit Kyoto and and giving you better service.


👍very good!

Very good located hostel (15 min. from station) with typical japanese rooms. Room are a little bit small once the futon are open but it is OK. Fridge, small kitchen and laundry are available as well as a common room all in japanese style.

We appreciate your well-rating. The room size is originally not spacious in those days, and we sincerely actuated the atmosphere. We are delightful that you could understand the structural aspects, too. Like you mentioned, we have free use common space for all of our guests, so we would like all of you to utilize it freely. Thank you very much again for your great review. We all look forward to seeing you at your next opportunity, too.


The room was too small and the futons too thins. Very uncomfortable.

Thank you for a review.It is a quite pity you could not enjoy traditional aspects.Concerning the room size, you booked a small twin room,so it will be naturally smaller than a standard twin.We understand foreigners do not get used to Japanese futon mattresses, so we are ready to help you make it more comfortable by adding extra mattresses.In any situations, we would like guests to contact us for details or help in advance,so that we can offer you better and suitable plans for you.Thank you again


I had originally booked one night to stay here; however, after spending less than an hour in this place I ended up booking another two nights. This inn is a very very quiet and peaceful place. It's great to come back here after spending the whole day sight-seeing in and around Kyoto. The rooms are made of wood and paper that give it a traditional Japanese feeling to it, and the female employees dress in kimonos as well. It's a little on the expensive side but very worth it!

We thank you for your favored comment. We can even feel how much you enjoyed your stay from your sentences. It is a very motivated factor to go on growing ourselves in service. There is no need for us to add any explanations of our facility from our side. Only the advice from us, the rate should be cheaper and flexible if you could contact us directly for your stay. Please put it into your account for your next visit. We very look forward to seeing you here again.


This ryokan is very charming, and very clean. The only thing is that we hear everything from other rooms, but we appreciated that the staff is doing ots best to avoid that. The street and the neighborhood are quiet and cute
