There is no outdoor hot spring only indoor one and there is no vending machine for drinks after using the hot spring. The dinner is quite standard, food is ordinary. However, the location is very good for visiting Arashiyama.

Magnifique expérience pour notre première dans un Ryokan. Emplacement et service au top et Ryokan magnique. On recommande fortement.
We want to come back!
The staff was wonderful and treated us extremely well from the moment we walked in the door. We stayed in the Japanese style room with semi-open air bath. It exceeded all my expectations. Very spacious room with an absolutely beautiful view of the river and mountains from the room and bathtub. Spent a lot of time relaxing in the tub and also tried out the onsen at the hotel. Staying here was definitely the highlight of our trip so far. We splurged on this hotel room as it costs way more than the rest of our lodging during our trip but we are so glad that we did. The location is fantastic for a relaxing stay in Arashiyama away from the bustle of the city. I would absolutely stay here again if I return to Kyoto in the future.
First ryokan experience and it was an amazing one. All the staff were extra friendly even though we don’t speak much Japanese
