The map provided on the ryokan's website isn't very accurate, so it's best to plan your walk from the train station in advance. (It's further than the map makes it seem.) The ryokan is rather noisy in the morning. It's located on a major street near a popular temple, so traffic noise and tourist groups get loud after sunrise. The walls are also quite thin, so it's easy to hear your neighbors moving around. Bring earplugs if you're a light or medium sleeper.

A nice introduction to a more traditional japanese stay.


Close to Kyoto Train Station. Restaurents etc nearby. Clean og friendly staff. Staff helped us rent bikes in order to visit temples around Kyoto. WIFI in lobby only was very slow or not working. Overall, good value for money if you need an affordable base for exploring Kyoto.
