Simply great and friendly place to stay! Lady Tanaka is so kind, she informs and she is helpful in every way. The room has everything you need. It's located close to everything but in some wat it is also away from all the crowds.

Very welcoming host, Tamie. The guesthouse is located in an old area of Kyoto, good for walking around, and convenient for catching buses to see the sights.

This is a great place to stay. The area and ryokan itself is very atmospheric. The proprietor was lovely and hospitable. We had a fabulous stay and would definitely return.

This location is perfect, very accessible to attractions and within walking distance from many good shops and places to eat. However, the shower at this place is just terrible. It turns off every 10 seconds (even when you follow the instructions on the wall) and the temperature control does not work at all, making the water scalding hot at all times.

The owner lady is magnificent, she is there for you whenever a need is appearing. She thinks for everything and the place is very well with big rooms.

This place was great! Great location to see real geishas as they head in and out of tea houses only one street over from Tanaka-ya.

X This was the best place for me to stay in Kyoto close to Goin area.Experience real Japanese living in this spotless home.Heated throughout for winter with the elderly owner making you feel special with welcome treats of fruit and nuts and strawberries with nice bottle of sake for the second night.If I was to live in Kyoto I would stay here and call her Mum! Thanks for the wonderful memory . Eamonn
